Had this at the release party at Brasa’s on 11/30/09. Was poured from tap into a 10oz glass. Little to no head was a little bit of a dissappointment, not sure if that was caused by the pour or if it is just that way. Needless to say, the lack of head hindered the aroma of the beer a little. Smelled of slight smoke and a subtle sweetness. What a taste though! Very smooth with a slight smoke taste that ends with a subtle sweetness, just like the smell I guess. Very drinkable! With a name like Smoke, I was expecting a Smoked Porter taste but was pleasantly surprised. This is an extremely good beer.

EBF NOTB. Aroma is smoky, chalky roasted, and chocolate. The flavor is the same, with the wood, roasted malt and chocolate coming together nicely. This stood out as being better than many others at the event.

Thin black pour with a light tan head. Lightly smoked aroma. Smoky roasted flavor with a bitter finish. Very nice and drinkable. I didn’t realize this was 9.5%.

Autumn Brew Review ’07
Black body with a tan head. Creamy palate. Very easy drinking. I don’t get the strength of a baltic porter here, instead this reminds me of a smoked porter, nutty roasted flavor with a touch of smoke.

This may be Surly’s most "to style" beer to date, not necessarily pushing the style boundaries, as they do with many of their other beers. Given this is a Surly special release, I was expecting more and so in that sense, it was a bit of a let down.

On a side note, the naming of this beer is somewhat disturbing. I hope they change the name. Dahmer is not a guy I’d like to think about when drinking a Surly beer.

Got this one in a trade a brought it to Sourfest. Porter dark pour with tan head. Nose is roast malt and light smoke. Taste is sweet and woody and malty. Was pleasantly suprised at how the smoke was NOT overpowering. Very nice.

On tap at FoBAB ’07. Dark black/brown with rubiness and off-white head. Rauchy, smoked aroma. Smoked, meaty and malty flavors. Thin to medium body, no carb. Tasty smoked beer.
