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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks YK23 & eyes_wide_shut. Very dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, smokiness and some licorice. Sweetish flavor with smokiness, chocolate, a bit of caramel, licorice notes and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

Kinda tastes like burnt chocolate milk. No real smokey flavor, just burnt. Not completely horrible, but not great either. I suppose this is about as good as you can expect from Magic Hat. I was disappointed.

Pours nearly black with red accents. Small tan head. Aroma is cola, smoke, chocolate. Taste is wood smoke, coffee, malt. Sweet, porter-ish with light smoke. Just ok.

swoopjones (5357) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013
draft at Coles, black pour, chocolate notes, light smoke, roasted maltiness. lighter mouthfeel, smoke content would fall short of a true smoked beer. Not overlysmoked but its better than I thought it would be. ok

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Light smokey malty flavor with a quick finish.

So-so smoked beer. The smoke is there but the porter is rather subdued. Black with head and smoke aroma. Mouthfeel less than average. So-so drinkability.

2012 Flour City Brewers’ Fest. Dark pour with a tan head, some lacing. Aroma of coco and smoke. Some caramel in the flavor mixed with chocolate and a smoky charr. ok

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.
