A: The beer pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with a rather tall khaki colored head.
S: Definitely gives off sort of a mesquite/barbeque feel to it. Lots of roast and smoke with a fair amount of char to go with it. Mild chocolate with some hints of licorice and just a touch of sweetness.
T: Smoke, roasted malt, and coffee are all strong flavors. There’s a slight toffee sweetness sweetness to it along with a light metallic note. A touch of earthy hops and bitterness with a light acidity coming through on the finish.
M: Medium bodied with a rather high level of carbonation for a porter.
O: Smelled pretty decent, but the flavor was a bit off, unfortunately. Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle - Sweet wood and bacony smoke, dark and rich malts. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Raisin, molasses, smoke and a bit of a vinous, peaty almost acidic finish. Very nicely done.

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours pretty black with a five finger creamy tan head. The aroma is smoked chocolate. Med+ body with frothy creamy carb. Flavor is really wood smoke with a lot of dark chocolate. Imagine a steak cooked over mesquite and then rolled in shaved chocolate? Minus the blood. It’s almost beefy. Finishes pretty much as it starts. Except maybe a little coffee is detectable. Damn good beer. djd07 (15107) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2010
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a dark brown with a small creamy tan head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a roasted coffee, pepper, and mesquite. Medium mouthfeel with roast and chocolate and nice dry finish. Easy to drink, a good smoked porter from Ranger Creek, Ratman197 (14974) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2012
