COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full-bodied, rich, robust beechwood smoked porter with a creamy texture and accents of baked bread, cocoa powder, roast malt and beech smoke. One of North Carolina’s greatest natural features, the Smoky (and yes, it is spelled WITHOUT an "e" in North Carolina) Mountains are the perfect inspiration for our own smoky porter.

RBWG14 Trip Rating #4. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of dry smoke, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, mild fruits in the finish. The taste is strong smoke, almost meaty, moderate hop finish. Thin bodied, lingering bitterness and smoke.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub on 2/2/08: Pours a mostly opaque black with dark mahogany edges and a well-lacing tan head. Aroma of smoky earthy dark malts and chocolate caramel with a touch of ash. Body starts pretty thick and dark malty sweet with some sticky chocolate and earthy roasty smoky complexity toward the finish. A nicely balanced and enjoyable smoked porter.

Almost black pour with brown head and lace. Light hint of coffee on the nose. Hard coffee flavor and a very nice finishing medium bitter. Nice silky smooth palate. One of the best BP porters ever for me.

ChainGangGuy (4370) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Appearance: Black body with a small, beige head. Smell: Burnt, black malts with notes of charred chocolate blocks and smoke. Taste: Roasty black malt flavor accentuated by a rich, though reasonable smoke component. Hint of baker’s chocolate. Not too much in the way of sweetness, but you do get your money’s worth in roasty bitterness. Bitter, smokey, even ashen finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: An enjoyable smoked beer where the smoke character isn’t grotesquely overdone.
