Not bad for magic hat but not that great on the style, smokey and light bodied. Hint of rust or metallic after taste, not for me

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours a black color with a medium beige head. Average aroma of slightly smoked and roasted malt. Average flavor of smoked and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish. The body is light with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Not bad, but very forgetable.

Mfaczan (5) - - OCT 21, 2012 does not count
A great toasty porter with smoky overtones. A nice hearty pour that I suspect would be outstanding with BBQ or just on the deck with a maduro cigar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheEpeeist (3364) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012
26 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tannish head. Nose is smoke with hints of coffee and molasses. Silky medium body with a faint tingle. Taste is caramel, coffee, cola and smoke. As it warms more fruity with raisin and plum, the sweetness helping to balance the smoke.

Bottle that makes me nostalgic for the original series that first got me into true craft beer on a random trip through Vermont. Ruby brown with no head. Peat, Montreal smoked meat, smoked malt. Moderate body, sweet, unbelievable amount of smoke with some unfortunate celery.
