Draft. Aroma consists of a smokey, earthy tones. The smoke was also the primary flavor with little else. Lightly carbonated and a little thin. Not one of the better porters I’ve had.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Muddy colored with a slight chocolate head. Enticing deep roast aroma with a natural smokiness. Nice smoky peppery flavor. Would love to brew something like this for summer grill-outs. Perfectly balanced. Another excellent, underrated beer from this relatively unknown brewpub/

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 GABF 2005 (I poured this one as a volunteer). This one was okay. Watery compared to many porters. The bit of smokiness was the main redeeming feature of this beer.

This was my favorite of the three I tried at the brewery today. Very dark but not a lot of head. Aromas were a bit lacking, but the flavor was better. A little chocolate, but mostly just smoky malts. Pretty good.
