This nostalgic porter evokes memories of chocolate and coffee around a campfire. The cherry wood smoked malt used in this beer gives it a heavy smokiness that blends smoothly into the chocolate malty body. With a silky finish this porter is ideal for sipping on a cold winters eve.

McNeillR (2264) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Firm black and greyed sandy ringed head. Rich charcoal and maltish nose. Fervent enough carbonation but fading bitterness and clinging sweetness. Peppery finish but dilutes as it lingers.

drjay44 (3525) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draft. Pours an initially thick, poorly retained, light beige head, with some lacing over a hazy, brown (SRM 25) body.....nose is light smoke, medium roasted malt tones, with cocoa, light chocolate, no esters, very mild toffee/caramel no esters or hops.....taste is light smoke, mild cocoa chocolate, slightly sweet with hints of caramel, no esters, finishing mildly bitter.....mouth feel, body light of medium, no alcohol, slightly sticky, moderate acid on the finish. This is a light take on a Porter. The smoke and roasted malts are quite light. The recipe need more from both mid level, (caramel/crystal0 and from the dark roasted malts. The hops are light, and except for the smoke the could almost be a Brown Porter. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

AWISLguy (2715) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2014
750ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a brownish orange with a malted milk head leaving streaks of lace. Aroma has smoke and light caramel and light roast with cocoa. Taste is of smoke and caramel, with some nuttiness, slightly watery. Light to medium bodied. Finishes lightly sweet, with salty meat smoke and without much length. Not annoying or bad, but little to recommend. Not sure of the style; more a smokey lager than anything with depth.
