Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one! A-pours a dark black liquid with a little tan colored head that is tight and creamy. S-the nose brings a ton of smokiness up front, lots of roasted and smokey malty goodness. notes of chocolate and anise. sweetness and hops in the back, plums, grassy hops. T-the taste is even smokier. lots of smoke dark malts, chocolate, anise behind. plums and raisins in the back with a light grassy hop presence. M-the feel is so smooth and creamy on the palate. the carb is light but enough to hold the body throughout. hint of crispness at the finish with just a touch of dry in the back. D-definitely a good bit of smoke with a good malty sweetness and nice hop presence in the finish. solid drink here with some nice maltiness going on.

Appearance: Pours out a near black body with a bubbly, ecru head on top, though this dies out fairly quickly. Smell: The aroma is smelling of moderately roasted grains, shaved chocolate, a teaspoon of ground coffee, and ripe dark fruits, though it’s superseded by a scent of quality smoked meats. Taste: Upfront roastiness with a marked sweetness, moreso than I’d expected. Additional toastiness. Handful of chocolate sprinkles tossed with a handful of Bacon Bits. Small splash of mild-mannered coffee. Fruit compote comprised of plums and Medjool dates. It’s brimming with clean smokiness, though it’s never overpowering or overbearing. Slight charred bitterness. Soft, smoke-accented finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-light carbonation. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Drinkability: This one was very easy to down. What else can you say? It’s a good Baltic Porter brimming with smooth smokiness.

POurs dark brown. Nose is heavy smoke, bacon, roasted grain, burnt coffee. Flavor is rich smoke, flavorful as all hell. Most smoke beers are over the top rauch malt, but this absolutely beautiful.

Thanks to blazer 06 for this one. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is spice, earth, roast, lager, sweetness, dark fruit, and smoke. Flavor is similar with lots of, well, smoke. All of the flavor in the aroma come out, but with smokiness seeming to dominate. Band-aid lingers into finish. Would love to try the unsmoked version.

750ml bottle thanks to mikesgroove.
Appearance : Black, small head
Aroma : Smoke, roasted malt, caramel.
Taste : Smoke, roasted malt and caramel. Noce smokiness and roastiness on the finish. No trace of alcohol. Fairly dry.
Overall : Wow this was really awesome. Really drinkable and tasty. Body is rather thin. So much flavour in a thin, well balanced drinkable beer. Not much complexity but just really well done.

750 ml bottle shared by Miketd, thanks man. Pours a pure black color with a small white head. A sweet malty nose, light smoke, rich roasted notes, wood. The flavor was great; smooth caramel and oak, light smoke, meaty, sweet smoked candy, more smoke as it warms.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Tasted on draft at the Twisted Spoke. Comes in a tulip. Color is jet black with no head. Nose is actually fairly reserved showing vanilla, super roasted malts with light cinnamon and sweetness. Flavors are dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, vanilla, and some cinnamon. The carbonation is light, but the body is massive and creamy with a long and vanilla sweet finish.

Bomber via in-person DLD trade thanks to translucent on BA. Pours just about black with a small fading off-white head. Aroma is somewhat smoky along with roast, chocolate, and anise. Flavor is nice, full, and balanced. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, and smoke. Smooth mouthfeel with fairly full body for a lager. Very solid beer overall. Even better than I expected this would be as a highly rated beer from a brewery I really like.
