On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that settles to a ring and leaves light lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and light smoked meat. The taste has a bit of initial sweetness with some coffee roastiness and a light smokiness. The finish has a little bitterness and a lingering, drying smokiness. Light body. Medium carbonation. Not quite as smoky as I was expecting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Zeno’s, State College. Dark brown, light brown head, lasts and laces. Subdued smoke in the nose (no campfire or smoked meats, but some smoke presence), chocolate, and roast. Surprisingly balanced between sweetness and roasted, darker, burnt flavors. Very rich on the palate, quite viscous. Alcohol not apparent in nose or taste. A solid effort.

On tap at churchkey. Super smoky nose. Flavor is more muted, the nice porter under the smoke comes out. Very nice.

First smoked beer. Interesting. A nice porter undergirds the smokey flavor, which recedes a bit as you drink. Guess I’m not a huge fan of smoked beers, but fun to try.
