poured into the bottle into a Turbinator.

A: Black. Brooding. some carbonation. Leads to 1.5 finger head down to a 1-2 mm disk. Nice lacing.

S: some bacon, smoky notes. Choco-malt. Smoked mild fish. Phenolics. This is definitely a smoky porter end of beer. This is definitely not Class of 88 deschutes/GLBC levels of smoked putridness. Subtle levels.

T: Bacon, smoked fish and the nose exactly and has that bitter smoked meat and porter character. Smooth. It's definitely on the verge of Rauchbier but smoother.

M: Creamy as all hell. Not as dry as I would expect, some creaminess offsets it. puckery smoke at ultimate finish. Out-breath is rough smoke and bitter campfire. It's robust!

O: I like milder porters but this brings the bacon so to speak. This stuff is definitely interesting and certainly world class.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Apperance: Dark beer with a light brown head.
Aroma: Rich toasted barely and coffee smell with molasses.
Flavor: Rich smooth coffee and molasses first layer, accented with a complex blend of spices. This brew is  hoppy thought out. It is a bold full bodied beer, with good carbonation.
Overall: This is a good Porter with its complex blend of spices. With an IBU of 45, the hoppiness of this Porter is quite pounced. This beer is more full bodied than most Porters.
