bwa5879 (616) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2013
On tap at shakesperes, Kalamazoo MI. Dark black pour with a thin layer of light brown head, served in a goblet. Lots of lacing. Little creamy, little smokey like a bonfire. Thick foamy mouth feel, very low carbonation. Well blended flavor, chocolate and a hint of smokey finish, a little dry. Last time I had this at right brain it was woodier/smokier, a lot more character. Hope to try it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (2988) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 12, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Dark mahogany color with thin white head, light retention. Aroma is pure smoked meat and light earth dirt. Flavor is smoked meat, salty brine, peat with the peat lingering in the finish. Medium malt base. If you like layers of smoke, you will enjoy this brew. Interesting and different for sure. Pairs well with aged cheddar cheese and cured meats.

umich03jm (1864) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a big foamy head that fades very slowly and leaves some decent lacing. Smoky aroma that seems to be a mix of peat smoke and smoked meat. Tastes very good. Big smoked meat taste with some wood and light cocoa. Very salty and fairly dry. Relatively high carbonation that seems work well. It’s like drinking a liquid cured meat drink but it’s but better than it sounds.

b3shine (5203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a mostly opaque dull dark brownish black with thin beige lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt and smoke with a touch of saltiness/earthiness. Average on the palate. Not bad; I’d classify it as a smoked beer though.

Draft at the release party at right brain. Dark with a tan head. Minimal aroma. Slick and creamy with a really faint smokey/salty finish.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Poured deep brown with a thin copper head. Aroma was - not surprisingly - meaty. Flavor was more smoke than meat without tipping too much either way. This was bold and savory but still light upon the palate. I kept wanting to find something odd because of the pig content, but my fears went unfounded. This was a very good porter with a very interesting story.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep opaque brown-black body, thin tan head. Smoky nose with cocoa; leathery. Mostly cocoa in the body with odd meaty bacon notes and charred malts. Bitter finish.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 30, 2013
22oz Bottle. Thanks so much, Sean! Salty, earthy, cocoa powder and brine nose. A robust range of dark, toasty porter notes flow fast and solid. This has the rich, creamy depth of Olfabrikken, but the stalwart brightness of a Smuttynose Robust Porter. After all the porter happenings get their shenanigans out of the way, the brine and smoke of the pig curl in from the dark side of the party and bring mysterious depth and intrigue, rounding out the porter characters like few other porters I’ve ever had. Hard pressed, I could never tell you this had pig in it, but I’d really dig the rounded breadth that the salt and smoke bring.
