Dastardly appearnce of inky black goodness. Invites an extra long gulp with milky smoothness. Ingredients engage in a polite battle in your mouth for dominance, but generally doesn’t stay long enough for a true winner to emerge, resulting in another quick swig to reestablish the battle. Very drinkable, lighter than appears and great addition to Irish beer arsenal.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Bomber in trade from jbwimer. Pours deep dark brown to black with a one finger dark khaki head.aroma is more roast than smoke, with big chocolate notes, still some definite smoke, and a hint of earthy coffee. Flavor is lots of roasty chocolate and awesome, some long smokey finish going on here, and ends with chocolate and even a hint of vanilla coffee (maybe my taste buds are broken). Really rich flavors here. Dark fruits begin coming out just a tad as I go. Huge mouthfeel--especially for only 7.5%--with medium carbonation. I am amazed at the body on this. This might be one of my new favorite porters. Must get more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy brown head. The nose is moderately smoky with some nice chocolate malt and a light roastiness. The flavor is nicely smoky and the smoke works really well with the slightly sweet chocolate flavors of the Porter. There’s a really nice campfire like smoke flavor to this that’s really pleasant to me. Finishes with a light roast note that works really well with the chocolate malt without dominating it. Medium bodied with a fairly sturdy malt backbone and soft fizzy carbonation. Really nice Smoked Porter.

Roasty dark goodness. If your a dark beer fan you have to try this one. Smooth and balanced.

7/27/13 bottle bought at RW $5.99. Drank out front @ July 13 block party. Thought it smelled like root beer but what do I know, I fell asleep shortly after drinking it. Nothing really of note

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from wegmans. Half in glass half in chili. Pours nicely black with a medium sized tan head with some retention. The aroma has a lot of dark chocolate, some coffee, lightly smoked. The taste has a nice medium smoke over the chocolate of the porter. Not too sweet which I like. The finish has residual smoke and almost some hickory. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good, not great. The smoke is there in the nose and in the taste, and this went very well with bbq. On its own I found it just a tad thin and unintegrated. Still, not bad at all.
