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.

On tap at Ranger Creek. VERY smokey aroma and flavor. I was hoping for a little more sweetness and not as much bitter. Smooth on the palate. If you like smokey you’ll LOVE this one!

I do alot of cooking out on my grill and smoker with mesquite so I had to get this one for a try. Pours up a black brew with a really nice tan head that holds for a very long time. Smells of mild smoke with some chocolate malts. Taste is typical of a good porter with a subtle mesquite smoked flavor that sets this porter over the top. It is everything that I had hoped it would be and I would say max scores all around but there is the price issue. This one is out of the everyday buy due to the high price tag so points deducted on overall due to cost alone. Other than price this is on my list of best brews ever.

Deep dark brown, with tan head. Mesquite smoky aroma. Sounds weird in a beer, but surprisingly good. Flavor is a mix of chocolate, coffee, and BBQ smoke.

Comes together ok. Finishes with some light bitterness. Pretty good. Smoked malt with roasty chocolate, very nice for smoked beer. Bottle shared at Epic Sour Tasting.

Bottle. Black pour with a huge, overcarbonated tan head. Smoke and thin, light roast in the aroma. Taste has nice smoke but it’s followed by thin bitterness and a watery malt backbone. Light mouthfeel. Okay.

Great beer. Nice and fizzy but I gotta play disc golf so more to come.. I think it has kind of a bitter finish and definitely a smoky flavor.
