Tap at Oasis. Opaque brown-black, thin dishwasher soap head..dissipates away in a minute. Mellow, non carbonation. Oily thick chocolate, smoke flavor. Unique for the CO2-free cask feel, but not mind-blowing at all. Smooth, on the lighter side of full bodied. Right on.

On tap at the brewpub. I’m a whore for smoked porters, and was very pleased to see this on deck. Nice silky dark brown pour with a medium beige head and a vaguely earthy consistency. Soft chocolate, molasses, and campfire in the nose, a nice garland to what promises to be a delish base beer. Sure enough, a bold but not heavy body delivers the deep dark flavors nicely and the long bitter finish accentuates a different dimension of the smoke. Nice.

On Tap at the pub. Pours a midnight black/brown. Thin tan head with decent lacing. Aroma is smoked malt, barley, and toasted grains. Taste is barley, toasted oat, coffee, and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and flavor rings. Good beer

I love this one. You get the smokiness of this coming off in the smell for an immediate impression. The flavor is rich and smoky, coming across like a great porter, but has one of the smoothest finishes of any beer I’ve had.

Enjoyed on tap at Goose Island Stout Fest 2012 in Chicago, IL. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency, off white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of chocolate and a bit of yeast, kind of light, but then again this was beer #15 at Stout Fest so ’light’ can be taken with a grain of salt. Taste is good, bit of cocoa, bit of chocolate, not too dominant, pretty good.

Samples poured on tap at Goose Island Clybourn’s Stoutfest 2012 (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich roasty blackish hue, near opaque with a frothyt qannish head. Some brownish edges glow, a firm lacing. Aromas are smokey, cherry wood and meat, touches of toast, roast, and some toffee. Caramel, cocoa, and roast. More cocoa and dark black malts, some black and anise. Initial is medium bodied offering medium smoke, touches of meat, red fruit. Firm to gentle smoke, some good roast, toast, and vanilla. Touches of rye, biscuits, toffee. Middle is dry and red fruit smokey, wood, and oak. Touches of dryness linger as the finish gets a bit more dry, gentle smoke. Backend really moves out of the sweetness. Nice beer, a bit overbodied but with a pleasant smoke.
