gripweed57 (1414) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Dark, opaque black color. Small dense creamy tan head. Big, rich roasted malt nose with notes of cocoa and smoke. Flavor is rich and malty with subtle smoky, chocolaty, licorice notes. Flavor improves as it warms. Delicious and creamy, with a bittersweet cocoa character. Outstanding!

Quevillon (2950) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Drank on tap (8 oz) at Trst in Brooklyn on September 22, 2016. Black, no head. Smoke chocolate cookie aroma, notes of ripe berries. Smoky barley cream taste, not that malty, dry finish. Smoky but it lacks taste!

Nate (4247) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2016
On tap at Brunzies. Nice smoky rich chocolate nose, with molasses and coffee. Dark black opaque with creamy tan lacing head. Thick body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with tins of molasses, coffee, chocolate and smoky charred malts. Mild bitterness. Sweet alcohol with a bit of warming. Finished sweet with nutty quality. Sweet lingering after but not cloying.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2016
330 ml bottle at home. Pours intense dark brown, little to no head. Mildly roasted cold coffee, nice chocolate and mocca flavours, little smoke scent though. Watery body, quite some dry coffee roast, roasted and toasted bread, even some burnt malts.

Booga (96) - Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Im not a huge smoked beer fan but this one is pretty damn good. Dark brown medium body poor with a 2-finger dark chocolate head. Good smoke aroma and not overpowering smoke in the taste. Dark Horse is really solid with this one like all of their stouts. Well done.

bookman10 (986) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2016
So many porters include smoke, but I havent seen too many stouts. This isnt bad. Pours a deep, dark black, with an almost purpleish head. Aroma of smoke, roasted grain, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is also mainly smoke (almost tastes like smoked meat), along with some sweetness, chocolate, licorice, coffee. etc.

Bebum (808) - Alabama, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Opaque, black. Medium body, moderate flavor, thin texture, crisp, rich and moderately hot mouthfeel, short length. Restrained bittersweet nature, fitting acidity. Predominantly roast flavors, coffee, bitter chocolate, Quite pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At a tasting, thanks, very little head, opaque black color, aroma of chocolate cake, wood and dark bread in the back, flavor of dark chocolate, coal and dark bread in the back, pleasant light bitterness. Nice though not really smokey.
