Aroma was slightly more roasted malt then smoke, little tidbits of smoke could be detected,but with Toddís usally ballsy approach,this seemed a little light,that being said it was a great raosted aromataste was chocolately,slight roasted coffeeand again light hints of smoke in the aftertaste,next batch tell the mallster to keep it on the beechwood a little longer. Still a great brew

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.

EBF V NOTB. Aroma largely of smoke and roast, especially when first poured, flavor starts off the same way. As it warms, flavor really opens up into a perfect hop-malt balance with delectable semi-sweet chocolate flooding the palate more and more. Very very nice.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2012
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

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.

A deep black pour with brown head. It has a roasted, woody aroma with a hint of caramel. The medium body has a creamy texture with average carbonation. It has a roasted taste with mild bitterness and an alcohol warmth.

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
