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

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.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Tap at The Pony Bar HK, NYC. Pours dark brown with a thick, creamy beige head. Aroma holds a bit of dark candies, light char and modest smokey malts. Nice flavor, medium sweet, well rounded, sturdy but not oppressive smokiness, some earthy bitterness, a bit of char, some soft brown sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with lingering, lightly charry roast, further restrained smoked malts, very light ham, some dark bread. It’s a very decent smoked beer. Good job, Magic Hat.

At a tasting, many thanks YK23 & eyes_wide_shut, murky dark brown colour aroma of dried horse droppings, porcini mushrooms, mud, smoke, composte and some dark bread in the back, flavour of dark bread with soome dried fruits, caramel and a hint of smoke and charred wood, medium to light body. Could be excellent with a little more body, but still very good.

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.
