I admire the use of restraint in reference to the peat additions, but the harsh, bitter aftertaste erased any interest I had in the fairly subtle balance of peat, bittersweet chocolate and roast. Meh.

dark sepia, thin cream ring drops quick. Porter qualities, light peat and plum but neither prominent. Flavor bitter, low height, cake and dark chocolate roasts through end. Bitterness strong, very balanced.

On tap at Max's in the Fell's Point distriict, Baltimore, MD. Opaque, brown-black with a thin light tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, berries, dark fruit and mild peat. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, peat, bittersweet chocolate, berries and sour cherries. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. Nicely balanced with gentle sour fruit and smoky peat flavors blending pleasantly with the roasted malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drunk in a snifter at BrauKunstLive! 2013 in München. Freigeist’s Peated Porter was also very interesting. It was full on peaty/malty all over the tongue, not smoked malt, though. I liked it, but maybe only as something to mix it up once in a while, but my friends hated it. It had a thick, silky feel and went down well.
