Roasted chocolate aroma. Black body with a tan bubbly head that lingers quite awhile. Kind of a smoked chocolate character. Chalky mouth feel. Faint sweetnote.

Tallboy can sent to me by WillRunForBeer - thanks Brian! Pours a nice dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt nose, much more on the porter side than on the smoky side. Thin but full of flavor. Roasted malt, a hint of bitter chocolate and a gentle smoke in the finish. Solid.

Bottle. Dark maroon color, thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of dark coffee grounds. Taste is burnt espresso mand bitter cocoa. Tasty.

Sampled @ Blues & Brews. Poured dark brown with some ruby edges. One finger off white head. Light smoke on the nose with the usual porter aromas. Bakers chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor has a light sweetness, despite the hint of smoke. Medium bodied.

radarsock (1037) - Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2014
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.

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.

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

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.

16oz can pours a watery black with some cloudy white head. Nose has mild smoke, pepper, malt, bread crust. Flavor is nice, malty, sweet, mild smoke, mild pepper, light chocolate, toasted bread. Mostly clean finish. Not bad. Smoke is well balanced.
