ROBC3366 (540) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2014
From the one pint can. Dark brown pour to just about black with a lingering mocha head that is soft and silky. I get a dose of smoked cheddar cheese on the nose along with some melted milk chocolate. Nothing extraordinary in the way of hops. Medium to above medium body. The milk chocolate is more of the leader in the taste with the smokiness taking second place. Sweet and lingering dryness at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap earlier today at the Grog. $6 for the pull pint. Pours a crimson-tinted dark brown, sustaining a sudsy, sienna head 1 finger in length. Aromas of rosemary, black pepper, vanillin, DME, sweat, and chewing tobacco. Tastes the same with the addition of rubber, Bible paper, and black licorice candies. Seriously was like consuming wet Marlboro cigarettes. Perhaps too much peat malt. Overdone.

Pitch back pour with slight reddish highlights. Creamy head. Light fruity roasty aroma. Flavor is roasted malt and light smoke. Smooth and rich palate. A little cherry and raisin. Simple but really nice drinking. Smoke is very moderate. You could pass this off as a straight porter. Quite nice.

bytemesis (3017) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head, creamy and nice lacing. Aroma is standard porter - roasty, coffee and cigarettes, just a touch of smoke. Flavor follows, light sweet, medium bitter, and faintly smoky. Medium body. I would personally call this a Porter; smokiness is too light to really change the base style IMO. And its not a bad one at that.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
c/o of a trade w/ WillRunForBeer Aroma - this is a dog that doesn’t bark he just bites The aroma is surprisingly muted nuttiness, peat, roast, and a bit of licorice. Appearance - body is very dark brown, almost black, the liquid is opaque, but appears to be clean, the head is really nice at pour, about 2" and beige. There is a sexy lace stocking running down the glass. ZZ Top, "I’m a Fool for Your Stockings" - that kind of lacing. Taste - the beer is full of flavor, the most notably a smoky wood like taste, some roast is definitely present as well, and some pleasant peat. There is some hop bitterness, but not much. Palate - body is medium, but verging on full; the texture thick; the carbonation is soft; the finish is really full flavored and leaves a pleasant astringency. The flavors really stick with you. Thanks, WR4B

Can for World Series game 3. Pours black with nice head. Nose of smoky ham and ash. Tastes of ash, cola, earth, light smoke, peanut shells, and some far chocolate. Despite those flavors good use a liitle more kick. Quite thin and bitte finish.

Pint can in a lager glass. Pours dark brown with a big, lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and lightly smoked malts, plus some light hops. Flavor about the same, with a good amount of malts. Average texture. Not bad but could be thicker and have more complexity to it.
