Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate brown into my SA perfect pint with about two fingers of rich, mocha colored head that quickly dissipates leaving decent lacing.

Smell - Nice earthy smokiness immediately present in the nose. Followed by roasted malts and dark chocolate/cocoa.

Taste - I believe this is my first "smoked" porter, and I'll be damned if it doesn't taste like you got a piece of ash in your mouth, haha. A definite smoky quality to the beer which is intermixed with roasted malts, just a hint of bitter cocoa, and perhaps it's my imagination but some coffee.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, decent carbonation, creamy, smooth.

Drinkability - Relatively so. I need to let this beer warm up a bit more but as of now the jury is out. It is a good beer, and I do like a good porter. However, something about the style is just holding me back a bit. Still, I can't wait to try to Beer Geek Bacon beer that I have in the refrigerator. Should be interesting to compare the two!

A - Dark mahogany with a thick head that quickly sinks into the beer, leaving a ton of sticky lacing behind. Not much aroma, but a little malty chocolate and just a hint of smokiness. At first I didn't taste any smokiness at all in this one, so I was quite disappointed. Tasted like an average porter; roasted malt and a slight sweet chocolate flavor. However, as it warmed up a little, the smokiness started to emerge a little bit. The smoky flavor was still not as bold as I expected though, but that's not a bad thing. Excellent, full mouthfeel. Overall, not as bold as I expected, but a really well balanced porter, nonetheless.
