Served in an imperial pint glass at the Clybourn brewpub.

I'm just a sucker for smoked porters. This one pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of off-tan foam. The nose comprises cocoa, hickory smoke, mild roasted malts, and a touch of cola. The taste brings in more of the same, along with an added bit of light char for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a very nice smoked porter, one that makes good use of the beech-smoked malts without drowning out the other elements.

Serving type: on-tap
