Burnt coffee, and toast smells. Woody hops, little bit of smokiness. Fairly light aroma. Pours a very nice dark brown with red tinges. Tan head with minor lacing. Very bitter on the tongue, with a little bit of caramelly sweetness. Clean on the palette, doesn’t leave any nasty residues or feelings. Leaves your mouth feeling refreshed.

A rich, thick, chewy porter with tons of flavors competing for attention. The smokiness is subtle but discernible. Texturally, the beer is a bit sticky. Also, using this in a beer batter is on of the best ways out there to delicious-up onion rings...

One of my favorite porters. And at $3.99 a bomber it is fantastic. This could definitely be an often buy.

Draft at Strangelove’s. Brown pour with a large foamy tan head. Runny lace. Rich, dark roast flavors. Good amount of smoke. Burnt peanut shells. Coffee grounds. Chocolate nibs. Black walnuts. Charcoal grill. Peppercorns. Lingering smoke in the finish. Pretty big notes for a Porter. Good stuff.

Pours dark brown with amber/ copper highlights. Aroma is roasted malt, wood smoke, citrus hop, faint chocolate, somewhat burnt. Aroma is very hoppy for the style. Flavor is a smoked, malty, hopped up, slight chocolatey little slice of heaven. Medium on the palate. Great beer.

I am not going to go through the snob bullshit. Drink this if you have the chance. A bloody steak and some friends all good.
