The smoke is subtle but insistent. Overall the beer is quite malt-accented.

Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
A clear brown porter with no head. In aroma, a strange beany chocolate, a bit off and unpleasant. In mouth, a smooth peaty chocolate with light acidity lingering, watery and boring. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill, April 7, 2012.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle sample pours a dark cola brown with a thin tan head. Nose of smoke and toast, much more like a smoked bock than a porter, since I don’t see the malt character of a porter anywhere in here, but the nice thing is that the smoke character is real and natural, you can literally smell the kiln. Has a nice bite up front and a sharpness over the middle, again, like a bock. Overall it’s a delicious naturally wood smoked beer regardless of the missing or muted porter characteristics.
