3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Old Market Brewpub. Pours black with a beige head. Fantastic aroma of mild smoke and big roast. The smoked flavor really reminds me of the Alaskan Smoked Porter. Smooth palate and a medium body, this is not crazy smoked at all, but rather has just the right interplay between coffee, roastedness and smoke. Nice job, Joel!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the release party. Dark blackish brown with dark tan head. Very pretty beer. Full aroma of smoke and roasted malt, reminds me of a long ago taste from Alaska brewing. Delightful full body, smooth palate and a lot of flavor going on. Thanks, Joel!!
