Pours jet black. Smoky, malt aromas. Earthy, bitter taste, slight sweet citrus followed by smoky ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Aroma: Dry, woody smoke with a light powdering of cocoa. Appearance: garnet black with a light skin of tan head. Flavor: Moderate woody smoke up front; smoke centric throughout. A little cocoa makes it’s way through, but it’s very hushed; smoke and cocoa come up a bit more toward finish. Palate: Light body, oily texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: A solid smoked beer, but would have like a little more Porter personality. ManVsBeer (11103) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Keg @ Baum, Rochdale. Black with an off-white head just around the glass rim. Has a fine roasted malt porter aroma that’s fused with hop, and a smoked character with a small sweetness also evident. It does fizz a lot in the palate which is its only downside. Its high strength is not so evident. emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pour is pretty dark with some burnt wood brown edges. Nose shows some diacetyl and resembles a Dry Stout. Some chocolate malt and meaty smoke. Medium full body with a light carbonation

Pours dark. Aroma is smoke. Taste is smoke. If set on fire the smoke would smell like smoke. If I was that big of a Jim Carrey fan I'd make a "smokin'" joke...

On draft. Aroma of molasses and applewood. Flavors of apple, raisin, caramel and faint smoke. One of those rauchbiers that is more sticky-sweet than roasty smoky. Mastelefish (91) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Smoked indeed. The smell hits you in your face like a nice smoked sausage. Medium body and bitterness. Some hints of roasted malts. My first smoked porter. I would suggest having it or similar at least once.
