4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Farmhouse Tap and Grill.
This ended up being poured into a flared tulip.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white foamy coated head. Dissipated at a nice pace. Filmy milky looking lace glossed the sides of the glass in a level coated fashion.
The smell started off with some sweet to roasty to meaty smooth creaminess up front. Light vanilla enters in as it warms to balance.
The taste was exceptionally smooth and sweet with a stellar amount of a creamy aftertaste and wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a creamy to silky smooth feel sliding on my tongue. Nice and sessionable, ABV seems to barely hit.
Overall, smoked porter, definitely and I would love to have again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep black pour with a thick creamy tan head. The nose is really rich
and chocolatey with some vanilla and notes of toasted coconut. There’s
a really rich fudgey note here with a touch of earthiness. Slightly
savoury smokey element to the beer with a touch of bitterness on the
back. Rich and tasty.
