Bottle @ The Greenwald Residence. Thanks, Jake. Cola colored beer with a khaki head. Intense smoke and roasted malts. Kind of meaty, which is off-putting to me. At least some dark fruits like raisin, black cherry, and plum. Certainly some of those typical roasty notes, coffee, and dark chocolate as well. Actually comes off a little bit acidic as well. Just not a fan of this one. bhensonb (15602) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bomber from A.J.’s Food Mart in Soquel. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma of smoke, medium dark fruit, some treacle, and chocolate. Med body or so. Flavor is smoky, chocolate, toffee and fruits.. But smoke is the major flavor contributor. With time berry is noticeable. Smoked berry? Weird, but nice. Good stuff.

Keg at BD Soho. It pours jet black with a sturdy tan head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, smoke, tobacco, peppery spice, chocolate cake, earth, mocha coffee and a touch of vanilla toffee. The taste is rather bitter upfront, rich roasted malt, charred wood, cacao nibs, resin, coffee grounds, some dull smoke, tobacco, spice and some dark plummy fruit in the background. The finish is dry and bitter and lingers like a bastard. Full body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Perhaps a bit too full-on even, but it’s good fun and challenging to drink. djd07 (15335) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2016

Deep black porter with creamy moka head. Chocolate and hops with vinous notes, and fruity esters. Dry chocolate and intense hops, with roasted coffee, full bodied. Floral hops and intense grapefruits dominates. May 2005. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Dark brown body with dense mocha head. Big chocolate aroma, hint of smoke. Taste is quite simply chocolate smoke, much smokier than their regular smoked porter. Very full-bodied -- stoutish. Alcohol burn in swallow. This is a very good beer. Nevertheless, maybe this one is too lurpy, perhaps too vulpine, but whatever the exact reason, I enjoy the regular smoked porter considerably more.
