Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of lightly smoked malts with some chocolate. Moderately smokey flavor with some sweet milk chocolate. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent but not a serious smoked beer. A smoked beer with training wheels.

Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma is smoky with a metallic hint. Flavor is roasty/smoky with super smoky creeping in...no medicinal/band aid though. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a very smoky dry finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Meh...a very average beer. Aroma was alright. Heavy on the roasted malt and chocolate with a slight hint of smoke. Pour was a deep dark brown with a one finger near tan head. Taste was a little off. The heavy roasted malt and chocolate overpowered in the beginning. The smoke seemed to be an afterthought and almost tasted medicinal. Slight band-aid flavor in the finish. Decent carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a moderate tan head. Nose is definitely very smokey, which is awesome. Tastes dark and malty, and with a great amount of smoke. Very light and easy for something based off a porter. I like it.

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.

Bottle shared by MikeLovesBeer.com. Never really been too keen on smoked beers but this one wasn’t too bad. Smokey..yes but not to the point where I was turned off by it. One I’d like to try again.
