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.

Bottle... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Exellent retention. The fantastically smoky aroma offers an afterthought of dark chocolate. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is sweet, chocolaty and smoky. Finishes crisp, chocolaty and lightly sweet. Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy!

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2011
bottle... dark brown with a light tan head, nice head... the aroma light smoke, syrup, a little mesquite, too light, ok... tastes really bad, I’m thinking this is infected, way over carbonated, mostly mesquite smoke, a bit sour and bitter... high hopes but really let down

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of smoke, with a slight note of jerky, some roasted malts and a bit of coffee. Flavor begins with a lot of mesquite smoke and is joined by coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Drank nicely.
