I am not going to go through the snob bullshit. Drink this if you have the chance. A bloody steak and some friends all good. Weisseroy (1) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2003 does not count
Delicious and balanced roasted/smoky/chocolatey aroma. I daresay the flavors are perfectly balanced as well, with a nice roasted malt flavor that goes down smooth and doesn't finish tasting burnt. Rather it leaves you with a nice sweet taste in your mouth that asks for more. The larger bottles are a great serving size for these situations. Diagnosis: delicious. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAY 17, 2004
wow! poured a dark dark brown color almost black with a little red twinge. a tan head that faded a bit to fast for me. The aroma was mixed iwht smoke, chololate, malts, and caramel notes.
The taste was a mix of chocolate hops, and smoke. Very rich and hearty. One of the best beers i have ever had stedanko (3) - San Marcos, California, USA - JUN 6, 2004 does not count
Very nice beer. Dark and rich, looks and tastes like a Murphy’s with a hint of smokiness and a few other flavors. Not bitter at all. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2004
From the "1 Pt. 6 Fl. Oz" bottle - Pours a thick black brew possessing a fine, lingering tan head and the rich arona of
caramel, cocoa, and bananas! The taste is a rich, malty one with peaty overtones and a sharp finish - I really like this beer!

Pours a lovely head. Smokey chocolate aroma. Perfect amount of smokiness (I hate beers that taste like bacon). One of their best offerings! jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 17, 2012
You can certainly smell this one from several feet away. The aroma is mouthwateringly perfect with strong milk chocolate, black liquorice, dark fruit, fresh brewed coffee, and slight caramel. Pours a dark brown with a nice two finger tan head. Taste is bold and deep, with dark chocolate, black liquorice, strong roasted malts, and a very nice dark fruit finish. There is a definite smokey taste and aroma. But unlike most other smoked beers, it’s not upfront or overpowering. Very nice, creamy palate that is balanced perfectly. Overall I would have to say this is the gold standard for smoked porters. Absolutely one of the best porters on the market! psychonaut661 (1) - POLAND - JUL 15, 2014 does not count
