Chalsk (1017) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with off white foam head. Aroma of caramel and smoke. Sweet caramel taste with heavy smoke and a balancing bitter layer. Too smokey for my taste. Watery.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 Sampled at the brewery - Pours a dark brown in color, but has reddish tones if held to the light. Aroma is of roasted and smoked malts with some sweetness underneath. Flavor is quite smoky with some dark fruits and perhaps some chocolate. Finish is slightly bitter. I liked it!

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2010
From a bottle variety pack brought back by a friend who went home to VT for a visit - Pours a dark ruby brown with a small, white head. Smells of malts with some light roast and intense smokey woodiness. Taste is roasty dark maltswith a little sweetness and a hint of dark fruits. The smokiness is there for the whole event from first whiff to the last sip - pretty decent porter and I would rank this as the best beer in the variery pack.

williamherbert (1229) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2009
The appearance is dark brown; light brings a reddish tinge, akin to a dark brown ale. Head lasts a few minutes, then becomes a layer of thin film. Specks of lace. Wonderfully deep roasted, nutty and smoky smell. Bready and dry. Slightly sweet accent of plums, but mostly roasted. Immediate smoky flavor, similar to mesquite, followed by bittersweet malts. The mesquite become an accent and the roasted malts and sweet stone fruits take over. Really nice. Burnt cookies with warmth. The feel is dry and ashy; sandpaper. It’s a very nice, dry porter. Smoky and rich.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2009
Bottle. Malty roasted aroma. Reddish black body, light beige head. Flavor is definitely smoky, notes of coffee, lots of roasted malt. Finish is lengthy, smoky, very tasty.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is lightly smoky, but primarily malty. Flavor has dark malt, water, and smoke, in that order. There is just an overall thinness to this beer that really drags it down.
