Had this at the release party at Brasas on 11/30/09. Was poured from tap into a 10oz glass. Little to no head was a little bit of a dissappointment, not sure if that was caused by the pour or if it is just that way. Needless to say, the lack of head hindered the aroma of the beer a little. Smelled of slight smoke and a subtle sweetness. What a taste though! Very smooth with a slight smoke taste that ends with a subtle sweetness, just like the smell I guess. Very drinkable! With a name like Smoke, I was expecting a Smoked Porter taste but was pleasantly surprised. This is an extremely good beer.

EBF NOTB. Aroma is smoky, chalky roasted, and chocolate. The flavor is the same, with the wood, roasted malt and chocolate coming together nicely. This stood out as being better than many others at the event.

[ABR 07] Pours black with a small dark brown head. Smoky, roasted malt aroma. The roasted malt is much stronger in the taste, along with some nice chocolate and some more of the smokiness. Medium mouthfeel. Long finish.

22oz bottle from Haskells Minneapolis. Pours a deep brown color with a tan head. Aroma is sweet, smokey, bacon. Medium on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, smokey, ashy, tobacco, with a bitter, smokey finish. This beer is more smokey that a lot of other smoked porters. On the edge of overwhelming, but not quite. Much like the rest of Surlys line.
