On tap, listed as "Johns Locker Stock 15k". Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, light smoked meats, roasted malts. Flavor of roasted sweet malt with light smoke and bitter chocolate in the finish. Starts off a bit sweet but the finish is nice. Pretty good mild smoked beer. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Probably the first Smoked beer I ever had, as it was described to me by the fine folks at Sams Quik Shop as "bacon beer." What kind of philistine would not make an immediate purchase? Its not going to crowd anything from Bamberg from the top rank or anything, but as a modestly tweaked malty beverage (enough peat and caramel here to suggest the base might be a scotch ale), its reasonably satisfying.

On tap in Newport. Hazy brown with an off white head. Scent is smoke and roasty. Taste is sweet malts and smoke. Good stuff.

Brown-black with thin, but perfect chocolate cream head. Wonderful salty chocolate sea air nose with a whisper of steamship smoke. The flavor yaws toward the smokier end with a thick, oily, sooty black patent-forward body with a salty, caramel underpinning. Wet sooty, roasty mouthfeel. Very thick stuff, though I wish the flavor would develop a bit mroe.

Underwhelming. No initial smell. Pours black with great lacing. Average carbonation. Has booze and roast malt in aroma. On tap at Hopcat.

65 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.11.2009
Aroma has some smoke, tar and distant woody notes. Flavour is somewhat sweet smoke, some tar, woody notes and hints of chocolate. Sticky palate, but still feels a bit thin.

Draft while waiting for the wort to boil at Copper Kettle Brewing in Pittsburgh. Nicely balanced while maintaining a certain crispness on the mouth feel. Here the smokiness is not overwhelming or heavy, just sorta creeps in on the palate at just the right time. Similar to the German smoked beers and very welcome this side of the ocean as all too few of the craft brewers are willing to produce in this neglected family. Cheers for Rogues accomplishment.

Clear dark copper. Sweet, pine, and definitely smokey, but not like a typical smoked porter. Would be great w jerkey or fish.

4 oz sample at Rogue Brewers on the Bay yesterday. Pours hazy goldish amber with nice lace. Aroma and taste are all campfire smoke, smoked meats, delicious. Nice smoked beer.
