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

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.

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.

Pours tar black with a soapy tan head. Heavy smoke aroma with hint of roasted malt. Smoke flavor with roasted malt, meat, and a slight bitter hop ending. Decent lacing. Good beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma smells like a magic marker. Flavor has a bit of nuttiness and some burnt/bitter notes...not noticing any smoke...some chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is chocolatey with a hint of that magic marker flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/30/12
Aroma: The nose has smoked, roasted, and burnt malts, and some mild earthy hop notes
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown-black color with a small brown head and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty and smokey, with some light meaty notes, and a mild hop bitterness
Palate: Medium-full bodied, fairly thick, has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
I thought this was a more then solid Rauchbier. They may not have made me say "Holy Shit!" or anything, but they hit the style on the mark, and made a good beer. I would have like to see more bacon considering the description, but overall, nicely done.
