650 ml bottle courtesy of jmagnus87. Thanks. Pours a dense black color with minimal beige head that quickly morphs to a fine ring. The aroma is a bit subdued and understated with light smoke, dark fruits and chocolate malts. The taste mirrors the aroma, but the smoke which was light on the nose is not so light on the tongue: In this I get smoke, anise, raisins, sweetened mocha and burnt toast. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Top shelf smoked brew--this rocks.

One of the better smoked beers I have had. The common thread in all those beers is that the smoke’s presence was limited. Pours nearly black with tan head. Scent is smoke and malts. Flavor is similar to an excellent porter with a touch of smoke. Light heavy body and appropriately carbonated. Bottle - Received in Trade

A good integration of a smoked and a porter. More smoke as it warms. More tasty and drinkable when it was cold. Overall decent smoked beer, decent chocolate and malt. FInishes a bit too sweet. Black with but a drop of lace.

Bottle - Dark mahogany pour with a ring of light tan head. Nose is chocolate, meaty woody smoke and a dry maltiness. Taste is creamy, lightly sweet dark bread malt. There’s a dry, woody smokiness with some dry meatiness. Finishes with dark chocolate and a pleasant smokey dryness. Thick, creamy with nice soft carbonation.

Big smoke. No head. Bacon. Salted pork. I don’t always eat meat, but when I do, I prefer it in a smokey porter.

AWISLguy (1374) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bomber from Bottles and Cans. Batch 201. Cellar aged about a month. Pours a very, very dark reddish brown with a bit of a brown head that dissipated almost immediately. Aroma has - HOLY SMOKE - thick rich smoke, with some caramel and chocolate notes underneath. Taste is of sweet caramel, meat smoke and bakers chocolate. Medium to full bodied and lowly carbonated. Finishes bittersweet and quite dry, with a slight touch of alcohol. A very tasty smoked, with a solid underbody.
