superspak (5009) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, August 2012 bottling. Pours clear almost pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of raisin, apple, molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, toast, smoke, light char, light coffee, floral, and roasted earthiness. Decent aromas with solid balance and complexity of roasted notes; but a bit too fruity. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, raisin, toast, molasses, smoke, light char, dark bread, and light roasted earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, toast, raisin, molasses, smoke, light char, dark bread, light wood, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Pretty good balance and complexity of roasted flavors with moderate smokiness; fair amount of robustness; and minimal cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a solid smoked porter. A bit too fruity in the aromas, but has some solid balance of roasted flavor and smokiness; and is very smooth to sip on. A fairly enjoyable offering.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a moderate tan head. Nose is definitely very smokey, which is awesome. Tastes dark and malty, and with a great amount of smoke. Very light and easy for something based off a porter. I like it.

Pours a clear dark brown with no head. Mildly smokey, not overly done. Mild earthy smoke, caramel, roast, with backflavor of ham. Not amazing. But not a disappointment.
