22oz bottle. Black pour with some creamy tan head. Nose reminds me of a campfire - tons of smoke, some roast, and BBQ meat. Flavors of dark fruit, roasted malt, and smoke. ABV is well hidden.

Wonderful barrel-aged porter. Deep black pour with minimal froth. At first, there is a bourbony flavor, which goes downs bit hot. Afterwards, a really nice smokiness lingers that turns out to have been around the entire time. Aroma is a feint smokiness as well -- almost liquid smoke like. This is BBQ in a bottle! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a dark muddy brown with a thick tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, smoke, malt, and coffee. Taste was similar. The smoke really came through but didnít overpower the coffee or malty sweet flavor. Finished creamy with a slight alcohol bite. Annoyingly drinkable since I donít have a keg or two of this. Hopefully they bottle/can this soon.

A - Pours a dark black-brown color with a big finger of brown-tan head. The head fades slowly down to a thick ring around the glass leaving behind some nice lacing on the glass. S - Aroma is bursting with smoke and oak aromas. There is a touch of chocolate and even some smoked meats in there as well. T - Starts off with a nice smooth hit of smoke and oak flavors with some nice vanilla flavor. Touch of chocolate flavor mixed in as well. Through the middle, some more roasted flavor and a bit of coffee comes though. The finish is a mix of oak and smoke with a bit of chocolate that lingers really nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. The beer is smooth and just a bit creamy. The smoke flavor really coats the mouth and provides some warming at the finish. D - Fairly drinkable, especially considering how bold the flavors are, but that is just how smooth it is. The smoke flavor is really strong and fits right in with the beer.

Tap@CBC. Black tar small head. Smokey notes dominates. Mouthfeel so light for an high alcohol brew. Some grassy hoppy bitter finish. Great.

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Aroma of dark chocolate and oak chips. Flavor has coffee and smoke with a slight meaty quality. Warm, slightly syrupy body. Moderate smokiness throughout. Ok.

On tap at Kristinaís pig roast, thanks Kristina! Pours deep brown with a small creamy light tan head. Nice roasty malt nose, toast, a slight burnt character. Some cocoa and a hint of coffee. Flavor has a strong roasted sweet character, some chocolate and burnt marshmallow, powdering cocoa, a touch of vanilla. Bittersweet candy finish. Medium body and a softer carbonation. Good complex beer

Served very cold in a tulip-like goblet at Muddy Pig: Plain glossy black. No head was present when served on any of my orders? Iím sure, perhaps at point of pour there may have been, but I saw none. A glare of oily residue coats the glass while flecks and specks of lace frantically stick about the surface. Heavy, dark, aroma of deep dark fruity tanged fig, raisin, with a nice rounded black malt sweetness. Crisp and fresh smelling at first wiff. Only slight smoked ascents at first but it grows with a delicate and gradual nudge as it warms. Creating more smoked bacon tendencies as it goes as does a bit more roasted deepness. Wonderfully broad deep flavors. Clean, invitingly deep, lasting flavors of all sorts of malts with caramel smoothness, black malt sweetness, roasted malt dryness, and smoked malt tangyness. Mildly figgy and raisin paste make for a nice quick tang of a dark fruity nature upfront. The smoked meat flavors are a near perfect match as it is never overpowering in any fashion. Its just a mild yet fulfillingly rich and well blended tone all across the palate. Notes of burnt rubarb pie, black cracked pepper, cocoa, and vanilla create nice little additional things among the smokey realm of its character. Lots of subtle layers and melding flavors in this one. A smoked crockpot of malts if you will. Nice! Body is smooth, clean, and partially silky with a well handled tang of dark fruit and smoke. Tends to get slippery real quick as its medium body isnít a thick monster of malt. Its quite casual and leads you easily into a lull of drinkin ease and great flavors. The drinkability is outstanding! Ahhh, but here is where I think that term "Smoke" came from other then the obvious use of smoked malts. As its the ABV that renders itself like smoke from a fire smoldering in your head. It builds slowly at first, filling your head gradually with smoke, eventually, and before you know it your head is a blaze of swimming glee from the ABV. Wow, one sneaky fuckin beer! Watch out for this one, be sure to drink water to help slow the smoke. Whew...
