BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Cup at Darkness Day. Dark brown color with a tan head that lasts only a few seconds. Aroma was of toasted malt, chocolate, tasty smoked ham, wood, and a little hint of toffee. Taste was of malt, chocolate, and wood all balanced by smoked flavors making it all taste very earthy. Would go perfect with barbeque.

Nsanders (940) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Tap at Woolley’s. Deep brown with some tan lacing. Smokey, leather, dried leaves and earthy hops. Taste is dry with light bitterness. Body is lighter with a foamy feel.

Ericular (933) - Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap @ Muddy Pig. Looks jet black with decent head and decent lacing. Aroma is campfire and hickory smoked bacon. This is a unique smelling beer. Taste follows suit with heavily roasted malts, some smoke, and overall pretty sweet at first, subsiding to a smoky bitterness that was just slightly too much. I mean, it’s what I came for, but in the end it didn’t agree with me as much as I hoped it would.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Aroma is bacon, hickory, and smoke, with dark malts and alcohol. Smells very clean and slightly sweet. Pour is absolutely black with no head. Taste is intensely smoked, sweet, lots of the typical baltic porter- chocolate, cocoa, light to moderate bitterness, and slight alcohol. Finish is slightly sweet, smoky bacon, and low bitterness. Good, if a little too sweet.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2008
On tap at Sheffield’s and served in a goblet. This beer poured a dark brown with some mahogany highlights and a short-lived tan head. Minimal lacing. The aroma of the beer was made up of light smoke, charred malts, and light chocolate. The flavor included peat, light smoke, mildly sweet dark fruits, and some chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with minimal carbonation and slightly sticky. A really nice beer. Surly continues to impress.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Draft. Dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of smoked meats, vanilla, dark fruits, and chocolate. Medium body, chocolate, strong malt presence, dark fruits, and nice smoke undertones. A very nicely done smoked beer.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2009
[Tap] Had this a few times, at the brewery and at Stub ’n Herb’s. Pours a pitch black with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma is smoky and meaty, a touch of chocolate and some underlying roasted malts. Flavor is big and beefy, lots of smoke, chocolate, coffee, and light fruity flavors.

Pour from growler shared by Beerlando at Redlight Redlight. Wow. Aroma was fire and peat! Flavor was a bit like a smoked honey ham drizzled with chocolate.... Very unique on my tongue. Cant decide yet if I am a fan!
