COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark malty porter has a rich aroma of chocolate and coffee. The body is surprisingly light and refreshing and finishes with a toasted smokiness from the addition of smoked malt in the mash and toasted oak spirals in the serving vessel.

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!

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!!
