Serving: from tap at Filiberto’s Italian Restaurant. Aroma: none detected. Appearance: large, creamy light brown, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-red/brown body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and lightly bitter, smoky finish. Long duration. Palate: medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Overall: excellent porter. Great appearance. Not too acidic. Smoky flavor keeps it interesting.

Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium thin beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with flavors of smoked malt, dark chocolate and slight coffee. The finish is malty with a subtle smoke aftertaste. Decent overall.

Very dark pour, head dissipates quickly. Smokey smell that dominates the smell. Quick bite on the first sip, then gets real smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (137) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Appearance has a dark brown color leaving hardley any head that dissipates quickly leaving nil lace. Smell of mainly the smoke, peat and roasted malt. Taste again of the smoke with the peat that really comes through kinda has the flavor note of smoked bacon. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. If your a fan of smoked beer this is a good one to try

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a very deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with lots of rich dark chocolates and a light earthy smoke. Just a touch of meatiness. Flavor is similar. Lots of dark chocolates with a nice roast backing and a solid smokiness. Finishes with a light char and peat note alongside a medium-light, earthy and roasty bitterness that is balanced well with a good amount of chocolate. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid smoked porter. Well balanced and enjoyable with lots of chocolate, roasts, and smoke. Good beer.

theisti (4158) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2012
22 oz bomber purchased online at Letspour.com. The pour is brownish black, opaque, with a well formed 1/2 inch light tan head. The aroma is soft char smoke, bitter dark chocolate, and a roasted meat/coffee element. Engaging nose. The taste is the nose, nice combination between the smoke, roast, dark chocolate. The taste also introduces a light touch of sweetness, which helps cut the roast a bit. The palate is medium bodied, with a nice full mouth feel, active carbonation and a dry earthy finish. Nice one.

Ibrew2or3 (8748) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours clear clean mahogany with dark ruby red edges and thin tan head of foam. The aroma pushes up big smooth smoke and a slight band-aid note as well as a faint roasted maltiness. The taste is smooth bold smoke and it seems to slip into roasted malts and a bit of spiciness. Underneath these notes is a mild band-aid like sensation. It seems to leans toward the bacony side of the smoke spectrum.

reebtogi (6330) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light tan head that settles to leave some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is smoky with some dark chocolate and citrusy notes. Taste is smoky with some light chocolate sweetness and a bold herbal and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done porter that is recommended for a good tasting experience.
