COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Grab your darts and let’s go!" This is a dark ruby red porter with a medium body. A slight hint of smoke is detected from a small portion of grains used that are smoked with beechwood. Pale, chocolate, black and crystal grains are also used with Northern Brewer and East Kent Golding hops.

A decent porter, but I wouldn’t think it was smoky enough to belong in the Smoked category. Some hints, yes, along with a medium body and some other sweet malty notes you’d expect in a porter, but the smoke flavors should be stronger.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark. Excellent - great porter flavor and the smoke is only in the background - not overwhelming.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Poured into a glass, this could pass for a cola. Flavor is roasty, with slight smokiness and a hop balance. Medium-bodied, this isn’t bad.

Yeasty aroma with hints of mikyness and toasted malt. Dark amber color with a small tan head. Roasted and slightly smokey malt flavor. Thin finish.

Pours very dark brown with little to no head. Roasted malt and light cocoa flavor with very minimal smokiness.

nramsburg (259) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Probably the best Rock Art that I’ve had, but, well, that’s not saying much. It has, for me, quite a flavor of cola on the palate and a bit of ashiness. Not a great beer but not bad.

alobar (2885) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Pours a nice dark ruby color-almost black. Next to no had at all. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and some hops. Taste is mostly roasted malts with some chocolate and fruit. Agree with jfurycat. Best from Rock Art I’ve ever had.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2006
There is a slight roasted malt character in here but the smoky aspects are more abundant and the body is more on the medium side. Its good that they stuck this one in the variety case (not that I bought it!). It is well balanced and an easy to drink beer. This is the best Rock Art beer I’ve had so far.

Growler, thanks to Kelly. Black body, thin head of large bubbles (hey, its a growler) Nose is cocoa, milk, somke, nice roasty malt, a little cherry. Flavor is not as sweet as the nose suggests. Dry roast malt, some dark fruitiness, a hint of inky smoke. Bitter mocha finish w. some fruitiness.
