3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Dark black appearance with lasting head, very nice lacing. At first sip strong smoke flavor comes out, with roasted and coffee notes. Good beer, not a favorite I’d go back to though.
From May 2007
Purchased from Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins
This pours from 22oz bottle(room temp) a very dark brown with reddish hues. There's a huge billowy offwhite head of foam that shrinks down to a solid layer and stays for the entire session.
The smell I'm getting is chocolate and roasted malt .
The taste on first sip is very chocolaty with good roasted malt flavour and a touch of coffee. Initially, I thought it was going to lean towards the sweet side but the roasted malt bitterness gives it a good dry taste.
Further sips in and I can taste *some* smoke but it's lightly done and it really meshes well with the other flavours and makes it quite smooth and quite drinkable.
The body is medium, the carbonation is on the light side and the finish, for me, ends on a somewhat semi sweet note. Very nice.
Bottom line: This is quite different from Alaskan Brewery's interpretation of a Smoked Porter, which is much more vigorously smokeie, but it's also quite good. I recommend it! Bacchus66 (937) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2017

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Tap @F&H, Sdbg. Nearly black, seems clear, thick light beige head. Roasted aroma, faint smoke. Sweet, quite roasted, caramely flavour with light, woody smoke. Good, bittersweet lasting roast. MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Draught, 5.9%. Roasted and vinous aroma. Very dark brown colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour starts off roasted and vinous as well. Turns more roasted and bitter after a while. Very light on the smoke in my opinion. But good, especially considering the moderate ABV. RoJo28 (87) - - JUN 8, 2017
It's midday. It's sunny but it's cold. The flames are out but there's still a wisp of smoke.

Keg @Stone, Berlin. Pours black, slight tan head. Nose is chocolate, malty, coffee, slight smoke. Taste is coffee, sweet milk chocolate, smoke and slight peat. mieszal92 (404) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Draught. Dark brown with ruby reflections, with lovely beige head, lacing. Nose is, fuck, caramel, highly roast, toasted nuts, sweetness, can’t find this smoke, we do it much better in Poland. Mouth: dominated with dried red fruits (cherry, prune, with prune in the foreground), not too intense. Sweet, quite low bitterness, weak roast, moderate body.
Too watery, very low co2. Overall: not any masterpiece, can be. Proves no sense in drinking simple porters while you have baltic porter next to. This beer doesn’t know what real smoke is.
