bwa5879 (537) - 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

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 (3158) - 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 (3126) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and smoke aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted smoke sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable complex brew.

ICEatALAMO (869) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft at new brewery. The pour is dark with a nice head. The aroma is very roasty with smoke. The taste is pleasantly nice and the smoke flavor is surprisingly good. Guess I see why it won a gold medal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
