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

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!
