Big rich iodiney smoke, dark honey in the nose. Flavor is iodiney smoke, rich caramel, a bit of pepper in the finish.A DiarmaidBHK (5672) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2011
Has a nice roasted malted quality on the nose. Pours a very dark brown with a thin light brown head. Some biscuit quality on the tongue along with the caramel. Finishes dry which is nice but it has a very thin mouthfeel. I wish this one had more substance to it. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
A: Very dark brown, bordering black, with a thin tan head that stays most of the way down.
S: Lots of smoke and a bit of a dried meat odor to it. Very nice with a bit of dark chocolate backing behind the meat and roasted malt.
T: Good amount of smoke, but becomes a little excessive compared to the other flavors. Nice, but not balanced quite perfectly.
M: Moderate body and a different sort of dryness from the smoke. Enjoyable.
D: Definitely drinkable for a smoked beer, but not something that’d be uber-sessionable.
Serving type: on-tap

Dark brown pour. Peaty chocolate, roasted malt and dark fruits dominate. Flavor is a great blend of smoke and chocolate with a nice bitter, roasted malt shining as well. Nice brew. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2010

On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours a nearly opaque black with dark mahogany edges and a stringy-lacing dark beige head. Aroma of rich smoky dark caramel malts and a touch of doughy grain. Body starts with good fullness and sweet smoky caramel notes balanced with a touch of hoppy bitterness before the drier smoky finish. A nice smoked porter.
