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!

Bottle thanks to maxmike83 (BA)!
Dark brown, thinnest cream ring for a head. Nose of decent smoke, light lactose, and some grain. Flavor has heavy chocolate and light smoke, a bit ashy but with a decent roasted malt finish. Too creamy for a smoke, more like a smoked porter with the heavy lactic and sweet chocolate, and for that it comes off a bit thin. Not enough smoke to make the beer memorable and not enough integration with the porter to see this as complete

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle… Pours a murky dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is of dark chocolate, espresso and charcoal with a somewhat reserved campfire-smoke component. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Sweet, nutty, chocolaty, light smoke flavor with a splash of deep roast coffee. Sweet mocha finish with a rumor of smoke at the wee end.

At HallingHansen Grand Tasting, thanks for sharing. Pours a clear and dark beer with no head. The aroma is malt, licorice, chocolate and smoke. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Smells like a campfire and tastes like it too. Some smoked beef comes through as well. It is good, but would go great with smoked salmon or smoked cheese.

bottle fresh in on a trade. pour is black in color with a one finger hefty brown head. aroma has smoked malt, chocolate, black coffee, and burnt sugar. mouth feel is light for such a dark beer and there is steady carbonation. flavor picks up on the smoke, chocolate, good and malty, a fair dose of hops, and light sweetness. I do not generally get into the whole smoked thing because too often it is overdone for my taste but this is well smoked but not the only thing it has to offer. the barrel aging seems to have cut the edge off things and really smoothed it out. quite interesting and the hops add another dimension. this does continue to open up as the beer goes on.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark color, small off-whitish head. Aroma was smoke, with notes of bacon and cured meats. Flavor was smoked bacon, with notes of creamy malts. Not a great big fan of smoked beers, but this was enjoyable enough.
