Our smoked porter has hints of vanilla bean, American Red Oak, and Scottish peat. This full-bodied American Porter is best enjoyed with friends sitting around a pine tree bonfire on bench seats ripped from an old van in the middle of a quiet New Jersey snow storm in December.

From the tap poured a dark brown color with a good amount of head. Toasty malty flavor with a lingering finish.

Not your traditional porter. Pours nearly black w/ almost no head or lacing. The aroma has soft chocolate notes. The flavor is quite sweet for a porter & next to no bitterness. It actually is pretty tasty but it’s understandable to be ripped for the style. It’s drinkable & tasty even if it doesn’t meet all of its style standards!

Dark, as prescribed, with a medium size beige head and good lacing. Sweet malt aroma with whiffs of milk chocolate and vanilla. Smokey sweet, earthy, moderately hopped flavor that pulls in more of the vanilla bean in the aftertaste. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Very tasty.

Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). Poured a dark brown color with a huge foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste was watered down chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel.

Should be my 100th porter. Bottle, probably the first rate from their initial 12oz bottling, everything else from before being bigger or draft. Nose is lightly sweet, smoky and a little meaty. Pours dark, opaque brown leaning toward black with a fizzy/noisy tan head. Taste is woody with light tang alongside the sweetness, has a really nice subtle smokiness with the woody character, but this is decidedly a classically-styled porter, no big salty chocolate or heavy roast, and not really bitter at all. Medium body, mild fruit/vanilla and concealed alcohol. I trust they’ll work out the (very airy) yeast issues with time.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Tap at crab/beer fest thing. Pours deep black with a small light brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, metal, light coffee, and a touch of smoke. The flavor is full of roasted goodness, light coffee, some toffee notes, and finishing a bit dry. Decent drinking and middle road.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Aroma is off with smoking rubber, slight coffee notes. Pours black with a brewpub head. Taste is more roasted rubber, campfire, and barbeque sauce. Not a good porter.

Black with a dark head. NIce chocolate and vanilla, roasted malts with noticeable earthy hops. Powdered cocoa comes on in the end. Medium, slick body. Good porter.
