A - appearance was good. Nice carbonation that lasted with some lacing. Light clear brown.

S - Smoked effect was pronounced.

T - taste was nice. Very balanced between hops and malt Seems this was done to pull out the smoke effects, in this they succeeded.

M - Good mouth feel. Surprised since the beer was a light brown.

O - I'll admit I am not a smoked beer fan. This specialty beer is not for me, but nice for the style.

This was on tap at the local shop and pours a beautiful dark color with a creamy head. Great head retention and lacing. I could smell the vanilla right off the bat and it has the best vanilla flavor i have ever seen in a beer. It mixes well with the dark malts with flavors found in the original Smoked Porter. Coffee and chocolate are the main flavors I take away from this one. Over all i think this is a great beer and I'll be getting this one again.
