Draft at District Pi. Deep brown with moderate offwhite head. A: roasted malt, smoke, hint of chocolate. T: smoke over roasted malt, cocoa. Fairly smooth palate. The smoke is a bit overwhelming of the malt. Decent but unbalanced.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 9/17/2012: Sampled on tap at the 2012 Schlafly Hop In The City festival. It poured a nice clear, deep brown color with lasting beige foam. Faint malt, tangy hops, and fruity ale yeast esters. Struck me as a mild or brown ale, too thin and weak to call porter. The "smoke" aspect tasted artificial like that liquid smoke stuff they sell at the grocery store. Not a very good beer. 01/30/2015 UPDATE: Tasted again at their Taproom. Definitely smokey, but in a natural way, and not overpowering. Well-suited to the toasty and roasty porter traits. Some malty and caramelly sweetness balanced by nice earthy hops, with a fairly dry finish. Good appearance, aroma, flavour, mouthfeel, an all-around well-crafted beer. Infinitely better than I remember their 2012 version.
