Really dark with the typical roasted flavors. A bit of smokiness, but didn't really see this evolving into anything. Decent.

Notes of smoky cherrywood, sappy with a coffee bean finish. Thin, but had a lot of flavors going for it.

Like Sean says, I'm a sucker for that dry malty smokiness of a good porter, with a crisp bit of hops (although I'm surprised to read that its 45 IBUs!). My brew was listed as 7.5%, not 6.8%, and it showed as the alcohol thinned the body even further and took it out of style quite a bit.

45 Ibus. I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for smoky porters, adn for this taste in beer in general. This beer is thinner than it might be, so it relies hard on flavor, and that is a slow build of smoke and richer malts that builds into a brush fire, til the smoke takes over with the effect of a decent cigar. I like this beer a lot, and I probably like it a lot more than it deserves, but like I said, I'm a sucker for this flavor.
