COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pipeworks Smoked Porter is brewed with classic rauch malt and cherrywood smoked malt, totaling 20% of the grist. This first offering in our smoked series starts with a rich malt base with hints of roast, finishing with a moderate level of smoky campfire-goodness. We’ll be brewing this one with different levels of smokiness throughout the year, so we’re sure to find something with just the right amount of smoke for you! - Bottle Conditioned - open & pour with care.

Batch #011 bottled: 4/25/12 (no wax)

Pours brown with a tan head and aroma of liquorice, smoke, and roasted malt. Taste is smoky up front, nice sweet chocolate, liquorice, roasted malt, and wood with a smoky, medium finish. Delicious brew with a nice amount of smoke that is not overdone

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2014
22 oz bottle from De Bierkoning (batch # 86, bottled 15 Feb. ’13). Opened with a loud hiss. Black color with a huge beige head. Aroma’s of smoke, tar, sweetness, caramelvla, hints of (red) fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet, smoky with faint hints of fruity sourness. Medium bodied, high carbonation (at first). Finishes slightly ashy, and lightly bitter. Quite pleasant, albeit on the sweet side.

Bottle thanks to Jstax. Pours a rich burnt umber color with a fast rising khaki foam that settles quickly. The nose is full of musky charred campfire smoke, medium roasted chocolate and a bit of molasses. The palate follows the nose but the integration of smoke is much better than the nose lead me to believe. Good roasty chocolate, wet smokey wood, a bit of licorice and salty caramel as well Very heavily carbonation.. could almost use less bubbles and a thicker fuller body to make it delicious.

The aroma has sweet, sugary qualities consisting of mild vanilla, dark chocolate and smooth malt. The head is almond in color and high in volume. They are not kidding about pouring this with caution. The body is black as pitch. As in the aroma, the taste has deep malty goodness adorned with chocolate and coffee. The rich malt takes command and is very enjoyable. This has a thick silky feel on the tongue after the carbonation fades. The aftertaste is chocolate and heavy malt. Brilliant.

Bomber. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin bubbly light tan head. Aroma is rich malt, dark chocolate with a notable smoky character. Smoke is not dominant but adds a richness to a dry roasty malt body. Somewhat thin, light carbonation.

Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a very dark brown with about 2 fingers of frothy khaki head. Aroma is mostly smoked malt with a decent bit of coffee. Taste is very smoky. Roasty smoked malt, beef jerky, a little coffee and something a little fruity. Full bodied with a thicker than expected texture. Lively carbonation and a very very long finish. Overall, very good. I’m betting this would pair great with some grilled burgers.
