Dark, rich and smoky…this classic porter is brewed with 63% German smoked malt and makes a perfect after dinner (or anytime) sipper for those who love a "bigger" beer. Winner of the Gold Medal in the 2004 Great American Beer Festival® for best Smoked Beer in America!

Bottled 355ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Nearly black coloured, small off-white head that went away fast, light roasty nose. Roasted malt, caramel, smoke and sugar with rather sweet finish. Far far away from smoked Bamberg beers.

Nice and smokey. Perfect beer to go with a nice Smokey whiskey and some sort of meats... I am a fan.

kajser27 (1232) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2015
Dark cola brown almost black, no head, only a tan ring. Aroma is smoked malt, bacon and chocolate. Taste is even more smoked and bacon flavored, very mildly sweet and mild chocolate and roast notes, some charcoal. Medium bodied.

Surprised I hadn’t previously reviewed this, having enjoyed both draft & bottled versions at a number of festivals & gatherings. This time, shared 12 oz. bottles brought back from Missouri, poured to snifters, displaying a darkest brown color, with ruby highlighting, a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and a cluster of thick spots of lacing. The nose was well roasted, with subtle sweetness of caramel, toffee, and treacle, and defining smoke. The taste was similar notes as the aroma, with soft carbonation, in a light to medium body. Seemed a bit light textured this time around, but a benchmark example of the style, nonetheless.

O’Fallon Smoke. Bottle shared with Ribafish at O’Hara Zagreb, huge thanks Marin and Hrvoje! Poured a dark brown body with a teeny tiny off white head that went away fast. Oily aroma, smoked fish, just slightly sickly. Taste... smoked ham, but light with some soft maltiness. It’s allegedly usually better, but this bottle was underwhelming I’m afraid. Shame.

Bottle from a six pack. Wonderful malty aroma. I can almost smell the campfire. Not quite black, but extremely dark. Not much head to speak of. Interesting flavor. Something sour in the aftertaste.

Mouth feel is like sitting next to a campfire. Pours a dark black with a 2 finger beige head. Very malty with a great smoked finish.

Bottle from unknown source. Pours black with almost no head. Leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Has a bit of smoked notes on the nose. Subdued smoke notes on the nose. Finishes clean. Eh!
