bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque dark brown color. over-zealous 4 " dark tan head, streaks of lace. Aroma of smoked malt. Taste is toasted malt that turns quickly to carbonation, chocolate and then smoke. It hardly needs hops as the finish is already well-balanced. I’m not partial to smoked brews, but this one is solid.

At a tasting, thanks, stiff light brown creamy head, aroma is a melange of smoke, charred ans peaty notes, flavor of smoke, wood ans some caramel, light lingering bitterness. Nice and mellow, highly enjoyable. rayaron (1836) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 24, 2015

A proper smoked porter that pours black with a thin beige head. Dark malts, smoke aroma. Taste is very smoky. Barbecue juice. With caramel, coffee, roasted malts. Easy to drink, smooth and tasty. Nice ale. Koelschtrinker (20403) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 21, 2015
Würzig malziger, deutlich rauchiger Antrunk. Leicht erhöhte Karbonisierung, dabei aber feinperlig, vollmundig. Deutliche Noten von Schokolade, neben dem Rauch noch süßlich. Sehr gelungen! 12/11/12/12/10/12

500 ml bottle. Clear darker ruby hued brown, lasting fine tan foam. Aroma of campfire smoke and medium roasted chocolate malt. Taste is more sweet tangy dark fruity, lighter roast, not as smoky, some chocolate. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Unique and tasty Porter.
