COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Influenced by the classic Bamberg rauchbiers, our Mesquite Smoked Porter is brewed with a Texas twist, using malt smoked in-house over Texas mesquite. This dark mahogany porter has a velvety mouthfeel, and a roasty, dark chocolate flavor balanced with a subtle hop spice. The nose is warm and pleasing with aromas of cured meat, pepper, leather, dark roast coffee, and a distinct mesquite wood aroma. The Mesquite-Smoked Porter’s medium body, rich complex taste of roasted grains, coffee, dark chocolate, and meaty, smoky character make this perfect for any Texas day, be it the cold of winter, or the accompaniment to a summer barbecue.

Very dark pour, toffee colored head. Dark malt and smoke in the nose, hint of leather. Medium sweet and a little salty through the middle. Chocolate and smoked cherries at the backside. The finish is carbonated, creamy, and cut short with a whack of mesquite smoke. What a fun beer...this should go with food but I do not know what yet...probably mole, or Tejas smoked BBQ!

quite tasty. There’s a spiciness to the smoke-gives some tingle to it as if it has some peppers in there. chocolate, roasty coffee goodness.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2012
bottle, pours black with a thick and very tall tan head. Aroma is obvious smoke, roast, wet wood, leather. Flavor is nice and semi-sweet cocoa upfront with big dry roast and smoke ending with a very dry mouthfeel. I really like this stuff.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2012
2/24/12. Bottle at the brewery during RBWG 2012. A nice subtle, but apparent smokiness in the aroma with some sweetness as well with a touch of bubblegum. Slightly sweet caramel flavor with nice subtle smokiness and touches of wood. There’s also a nice presence of chocolate and a touch of roast to cut the smokey sweetness. Nice!

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle; poured a dark, cola brown with a small off white head. Aroma of smoked malt, leather, meat, and bean and bacon soup. Definitely an acquired taste; would have never liked this a year ago. For the amount of smoky flavor, it is pretty easy drinking. Some sweetness and meat, but not the most complex version of the style
