22 oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.

A- It was initially a bit of a gusher. The body was a very deep, dark brown that was nearing black. The head was a fluffy, tan that left loads of sticky spots on the side of the glass.

S- It had a really nice malty aroma off the bat. It was full of roasted, smoked goodness. There were hints of coffee and chocolate behind the pronounced smoked aroma.

T- It's a great combination of traditional porter traits with a heavy dose of smoke. The smoked flavors were abundant, yet not overpowering. I still picked up a good deal of dark chocolate and coffee flavors. The slightest of citrus hops struggle to make itself known through the robust malt and smoke profiles.

M- Pretty basic. A light bite from medium carbonation, hop, and alcohol.

D- It's a decent drinker. As the smoked flavors become more robust with some warmth, it gets a little more difficult imagining drinking more than a bomber at a time.

22oz bomber. tasted from Sam Adams pint glass.

A: Dark brown mahogany with tan/coffee head. Head doesn't linger long but lace does.

S: chocolate malt, roast coffee. peat smoke, but subtle

T: great. some chocolate (reminds me of Lindt 70%) malty with no hop detectable. I detect a hint of dark caramel

M med-full body smooth and a bit creamy. a nice smoky aftertaste. light smokiness not bonfire-like

D: a very nice porter. pour me another.

22 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown color with a 2 finger light tan head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some slight lacing sticks to the glass as well. Aromas of caramel roasted malt, some chocolate, and smoke. Aromas are pretty standard for a porter with some good strength as well. Taste of caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, with some smoke and nutty flavor as well. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers with coffee, chocolate, and smokey flavors for a bit. Medium carbonation and body. No alcohol noticed in the taste or finish. A decent amount of creaminess is also present, with very smooth drinkability and great flavor balance. Overall, a very nice porter, didn’t blow me away but this is an all around solid brew. Very tasty stuff.
