Shifter at Triangle Wine Morrisville..good aroma sweet smokey. Nice level of smoke with a sweet chocolate malty aroma. Brownish black color good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body thick smooth creamy mouthfeel. Sweet smoke finish nice. Especially after a hot day at work.

Very mild smoke in this beer. Nice chocolate notes. Not the big smoke that I want in a smoked beer but a good showing.

Poured from 6 month old deuce. Deep black pour with brown hue, 1-2 inches cocoa colored head. Smoked malt scent, mesquite, oats, sweet chocolate, malt balls, hay. Soft carbonation, oily light mouthfeel, acidic but clean finish. Flavors of smoked wood, light hickory or mesquite, chocolate, spicy at the finish. Great rich porter with nice subtle smoked element.

Poured a schillers house. Thanks. Dark brown color, brown head. Nice restraint on the smoke. The base porter shines with the smoke as an added component and not dominating. Tasty.

Very similar to the regular porter but with a slight smoke character. Nice big roasty porter with a great mouthfeel.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste smokey, roasted malt, dark chocolate. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the MBG Summerfest. I’m a fan of smoked beers and this one had that quality nicely. A dark pour and a slightly thicker feel. A good smoked porter but I would definitely prefer Founders regular porter.
