Well, this wonderful beer was on sale at my local Binny's unbeknown to me, so I told the cashier to wait while I grabbed another delicious bottle. I'm watching UFC Unleashed as I write this review and sip on this awesome beer.

The look is very nice, deep dark brown against the glass and slightly black in the center but still not as dark as I thought it would be, but still very nice. The head is very minimal but expected. The smell is very good. Dark chocolate, licorice, caramel, and dates fill my cognac glass. It's a wonderful smell because it doesn't tire the nose and it definitely doesn't get old. The taste is very good, dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee are big on the buds. The caramel and licorice play lesser roles in the taste but still provide some of the character of the porter. You get a little hoppy aftertaste, but it's minimal. Overall, I think I just fell in love.

This is a heavy bodied brew but still quite surprisingly pretty high on drinkability. I would definitely recommend this porter to anyone who enjoys great dark beers, or great beer for that matter. Enjoy!

First smoked beer that I've tried, but certainly not my first porter.

A: Poured into my Sierra Nevada branded hop tulip imperial pint glass. Only one finger of tawny head that quickly settles to a thin cap from an aggressive pour. Deep dark brown color that will let strong light through. I can see lots of floaties in the glass. Moderate lacing that less than expected. Looks scrumptious.

S: Strong peat , so strong that I'm having a hard time getting to the other aromas. Wood smoke, cocoa, milk chocolate, and some vanilla. Sweet and inviting. Smells like sitting around a fireplace, inside of an old cabin, in the forest, at Xmas time. I'm not getting the coffee that most other reviewers noted. A hint of dark fruits.

T: Once again strong peat that encompasses wood smoke and dark chocolate. Not nearly as sweet as it smells. No fruits to speak of. Strong charcoal. Reminds me of Irish Dry Stout, specifically Guinness Extra Stout. Starts bittersweet and quickly leads to a strong, drying bitterness that lasts well after swallowing.

M: Carbonation is perfectly moderate with a tight feel. Creamy. Tea-like drying is strong. Substantialness is spot-on.

O: Mind = Blown
