HonkeyBra (3277) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Dark pour. Chocolatey with slight bitterness. I would have enjoyed this more if it weren’t so crowded, with so many dorky looking hipsters not even drinking Piece beers.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Tasted 4/30/08. 4th sample from the brewpub. Dark brown hue with a taupe ring of head. Anise and raisins & a touch port in the nose. Roasty toasty. Spotty head. Medium bodied. Toffee and anise flavors. English style. Mix of bark and toast with dark fruit and burnt sugar. Even throw a touch of smoke into the mix. Not quite my style. Gonna give it the meh...

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Growler: Black in color with a thin head. The nose was smokey with added roasted aromas. The flavors in the mouth were similar to the nose. Medium-bodied and quite drinkable. Well made.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Draft… DLD’08… Pitch black beer with a small, creamy, everlasting, khaki-colored head. The rich, singed aroma is full of chocolate, light smoke, tobacco and charcoal. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Leans on the sweet side of balance. Chocolate, charcoal and mild smoke. Finishes chocolaty and sweet.

Big black pour with an average head. Smell is roasted and nutty and has a nice subtle presence of smoke in there. It has a very nice smoked meat flavor with a background of nice balanced malt. Good palate.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
OK so I do not like smoked beers, the taste of bacon is great but it just doesnt belong in a beer. This is not overly ssmoked, but its there and it shouldnt be. Very smooth porter with some backbone that is overwhelmed by a touch of smoke. Its cool that they do something different, but this is not for me.

Another fantastic beer on tap at Piece. Pour is black with a filmy tan head. Smell is rich dark malt, smoky coffee, and dry chocolate. Taste is rich, roasty, smoky and robust flavorwise. Prickly carbonation with a medium body and this one comes highly recommended.
