BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Son-in-Law and I shared a 0.73 litre bottle he brought back from Philadelphia last year: it was broached on 6th Feb 2014, smoking! One of the most intensely smoked beers I’ve ever had, I struggled to pick up any other flavours at first because of the burnt smoky depth it had. Slowly dark chocolate and ground coffee esters began to fight their way through the ashtray style feel. We managed to finish it off, just: we’ll not be having another. I’ve tried to score it objectively.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Kind of an average smoked beer. Not much sense of a porter here. Pours dark brown with decent head and lacing. Finishes burnt bitter. Not a huge taste and palate a little simple. Bottle.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Deep dark brown body with a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, peat, roasted peanuts, earth, caramel and a nice smooth pit fruit flavour. Medium-bodied; Dense earthy flavour of peat, smoked malt, caramel, toffee and a bit of hazlenuts. Aftertaste shows some subdued sweetness, a lot of smoked grain and a touch of specialty grains, some pumpkin and squash and a bit of raisins. Overall,a nice beer and a good smoked option! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased a few minutes ago from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-November-2013 for US$3.00, yes 3 Dollars for the 750 mL bottle!!!, sampled a few minutes later on 01-November-2013 in my hotel room here in New York.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2013
750 ml bottle via trade - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is a doughy toasted malt, smoke, and light chocolate. Flavor is smoke, lightly sweetened roasted malt, and chocolate. The sweet malt lingers a bit, but it finishes kinda dry. Medium to full body. Boy, this one just won’t go away.
