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.

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 Iíve turned down a second glass of a stout in favor of a porter. I hope this is on tap next time Iím town.

A nice porter that has a distinct peat aftertaste that is full of smokiness and style.

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.

NachlamSie (2764) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pint from cask at the brewpub. Pours very dark with a well formed head. The aroma is richly roasty, smokey and chocolatey. The hearty malt body conveys peaty smoke, earth, cacao and a little residual sweetness. It?s super clean and well balanced. The palate is silky. Excellent roast and smoke in the finish. This is an outstanding porter.

wchesser (1163) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Cask at brewery. Solid porter. Light smoke on nose but mostly dark sweet malts. Smoke much more pronounced in taste as peaty earthy smoke on good classic porter core. Dark brown with heavy lacing. Cask treatment works great.

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.

LilBeerDoctor (3450) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
On cask at the brewpub. Pours a very cloudy dirt brown with a tan head. Aroma of lots of roasted malt, some chocolate/cocoa. Flavor of bitter chocolate, sweet oatmeal malt, less roasty than the aroma suggests. Very chalky palate. Interesting porter. 8/4/7/4/14 [3.7/5]

On tap at the brewpub. Black in color with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of roasted malts, light smoke and Italian roast coffee. Taste is of smoke, earth, wet soil, and heavy in roasted malts.

Very dark with a beautiful red hue. Lasting, off-white head. Sweet and roasty nose. Soft and very creamy. Aromatic hop notes. Chewy, roasty-toasty malts with a soft smoky flavor. Peat is sweetish and mild; smoky notes are not sharp or harsh. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
