COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
He would have made it to the top for this one. Darker in color from the roasted barley. A strong Brew with a smokey flavor from the Peated Malt.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Cask at PC. Black with a thick head. I first notice how thin this is-too bad. Flavors of a porter but just not getting there because the thinness doesn’t let this beer linger. Drinkable but not memorable. Rerate 8-12-12. Much better body and stronger flavors. Pretty good.

Pours a dark brownish to black color with little head. Smell is lightly malt and smoky from the peated malt. Taste is peaty, smoky and with a thin malt flavor. Body is also thin. Not bad, and a good light smoky flavor. Drinkable, but not my preferred style.

On tap @ Phantom Canyon poured a clear dark brown with a minimal ring of tan foam. Aromas of peat, smoke, dark chocolate, roastness and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of peat smoke, cocoa, light coffee and light charcoal with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

Draught at the brewery. Beer is nearly opaque, very dark brown. Head is moderately sized, light brown, nitro-looking creamy, mostly lasts.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of roasted grain, coffee, light note of chocolate; Hoppy with light notes of lemon zest, resin/pine; Yeasty with a light-to-moderate note of basement; Moderate-to-heavy notes of earthy smoky peat. Registers as slightly medicinal.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, trace acidic with an average-length, lightly acidic/bright, moderately bittersweet finish. Charred-wood, old campfire site in the rets.<P>The body is medium, the texture is velvety/creamy and the carbonation is soft.<P>My favorite offering of the evening. I actually drank my whole half-pint of. Dark, mysterious, challenging but not overly noisy in the nosy. ;)

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Had a few glasses on tap during one of my fall trips to Colorado Springs. Deep dark brown with no head. Smoke in the nose and a taste reminiscent of an Islay scotch in the body mingled among the chocolate and coffee flavors. The first time in a while I’ve turned down a second glass of a stout in favor of a porter. I hope this is on tap next time I’m town.

TheBeerLover (1024) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 27, 2006
This beer is based on a robust porter, brewed with chocolate malts, dark malts, and roasted malts, but is brought to an even higher elevation, with the addition of peat smoked malt. This specialty malt is smoked over a peat or turf fire, and is usually found in Scotch whiskey, or in many American brewed versions of Scotch ale. The combination of dark and chocolate malts, roast, and peat smoke, make for one complex, delicious, satisfying beer. Zebulon Peated Porter pours to a beautiful, pitch black color with a thick and creamy tan head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is just fantastic, and loaded with big aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and wonderful smoky aromas of peat. The palate is soft, fat, and creamy on the tongue, with big flavors of dark chocolate, dark malt, hints of black currant fruity flavors, and mild roasted coffee flavors. Zebulon Peated Porter finishes with more flavors of dark chocolate and roast up front, and then ends with a nice bit of roasty/peat smoky flavor that lingers on the tongue. This beer was outstanding, and an absolute must try for any beer lover visiting the Colorado Springs area.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Tap at brewery. Pours a deep, rich brown. Smells faintly of roasted coffee. Flavor starts out as a light scotch and finishes roasty and malty. Very good stuff.

Poured from the tap, this beer was a deep garnet (almost black) in color and clear. There was little or no head and subsequently no lacing. There was a subtle hop aroma balanced by the also subtle smoky malt. The body was full accompanied by a smooth texture and low carbonation. The flavor started off with an impression of a fine 20 year old scotch. There was decided alcohol warmth in the middle and the finish was long with very little bitterness.

BrockLanders (770) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2005
On tap at PC. Poured a dark brownish black....slight beige head. Mostly malty aroma, maybe some coffee notes, peatiness. That’s where it ends. Flavor is a let down....mostly roasted malts, slight bitterness, maybe--just maybe some smokiness. Thin mouthfeel....disappointing.
