12oz via trade. Nice dark pour, with reddish hues visible. Slightly sour, lactic taste amidst the chocolate malts give this one an odd quality. The smoke here is very subtle, at times barely detectable. Thinnish body, and a dry, chalky finish. Average.

Almost black body... nearly white head. Slight smokiness in the weak aroma. Watery palate, but a good roasted malt flavor is there. Easy to drink as well.

A decent porter, but I wouldnt think it was smoky enough to belong in the Smoked category. Some hints, yes, along with a medium body and some other sweet malty notes youd expect in a porter, but the smoke flavors should be stronger.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark. Excellent - great porter flavor and the smoke is only in the background - not overwhelming.

Poured into a glass, this could pass for a cola. Flavor is roasty, with slight smokiness and a hop balance. Medium-bodied, this isnt bad.

Probably the best Rock Art that Ive had, but, well, thats not saying much. It has, for me, quite a flavor of cola on the palate and a bit of ashiness. Not a great beer but not bad.

Pours a nice dark ruby color-almost black. Next to no had at all. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and some hops. Taste is mostly roasted malts with some chocolate and fruit. Agree with jfurycat. Best from Rock Art Ive ever had.
