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.

Dark dark brown pour. Not quite black. Medium dark brown head. Sweet smoky aroma. Mesquite smoke is about all I can taste. Sweetness from the malt. I love mesquite BBQ. So BBQ beer works for me. ---Rated via iPhone

APPEARANCE: Pours a dark brown with a short lived tan head and fair lacing. AROMA: Smoked malts, hints of chocolate and roasted coffee. TASTE: The taste is similar - smoked flavor dominates followed by a brunt coffee flavor with a nice subtle, but very present hop bitterness. MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodies and medium carbonation. OVERALL: A strong smoked flavor but not over the top; very drinkable and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Courtesy of dcschiller. It pours mahogany with a tall rocky tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sort of smoky, sort of dusty and also sort of off-ness. Hmm? The taste is prickly with carbonation giving up roasted malts, molasses, a mild level of smoke and some tartness. It end with dark roasted malts as well as coffee and an odd off-putting tartness.

Thanks to the kind soul that shared this at the last Tampa Weekly Tasting. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, campfire, coal, and dark chocolate. Flavor is similar- woody smoke, earth, coal, and some chocolate up front with smoke and earth lingering around into the finish. Nice blend of smoke and porter. Medium in body and pretty nice.

batch 007 courtesy of Kaggie97 via coldbrewky. deep dark oily black with ruby edges. Foamy tan head with amazing retention. Faint smoke and pepper in the nose bound by an inviting element of roast. Taste falls in order with a big but silky body. Sweet smoke lingers. What a treat.

This was our third installment of the Texas beer roundup I had yesterday in my dining room with UDBeernut. Batch 007 11.9.11. Semi-buzzed rambling to the brewery over a discussion that I realy need to get me one of them there smart phones. My folks were up visiting as well this weekend. Ma stated that this "is like liquid smoked cheese...great cheese" as she reached for the bomber and helped herself. Go Ma! Tingle on the gums biting. Slate black with brown tone. Oily head. Spectacular lacing. Smokey gentle nose. Spectacularly rounded and robust in body. I get light pepper nearing the finish. Other than that this silky smooth beer was clearly the leader of the day. a Solid, benchmark porter. Yeah!
