a: Brown body with ruby hues, off-white head, good retention and lacing.

s: Smoke and chocolate.

t: Sweet chocolate, smokey malt, toffee, coffee-like bitterness in the finish. Exceptional balance of flavor.

m: Medium to high carbonation, full body, chewy.

d: Balance makes for an easy drinking porter. A very well made smoke beer, the smokiness is definitely there, but it provides a nice addition, rather than being the basis for the brew.

pretty pitch black with a cappuccino head that wasn't poured with a lot of height to begin with, but didn't last long. lacing is great
smell of chocolate malts and a mocha flavor. don't really pick up on a smokey smell really.
and the taste matches the smell. however, i do notice a little smoked taste on this porter. very malty and bitter.
The mouthfeel is a bit creamy, with the carbonation is good.
very drinkable beer.
was my first porter i've ever reviewed, and first smoked porter ever tasted. i enjoyed it.

Pours a deep brown/red, medium tan head, pretty thick and spots of lace on the glass. Smell is malty, sweet cherries, very light smoke. Taste is roasted coffee, cherries, and light smoke, little bit of chocolate, quite malty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with low carbonation. Smoke character is perfect, not overpowering and very complementary, thanks DrJay!

This is a nice, fairly dry, porter that is very good, not brilliant, but very good. It pours a very dark dull brown with a dark tan head, fairly creamy, decent retention, a bit of lace. The nose is caramel chocolate malt, roasted dark malt, some charred aromas too. The nose is good, not pungent, not great, a bit muted.

The taste is definitely chewy, as the Bros. said, with a touch of smoky flavor, but mostly dark malt, probably some crystal malt too. There is a touch of sweeter roasted dark character that emerges in the finish. This is mostly a dry porter, but it does have a bit of complexity in that the roasted and slightly charred and smoked qualities include a touch of sweeter dark malt. This is a full bodied beer and quite nice for a 5.9% ABV beer. You can drink lots of these for sure. The aftertaste is also quite mild, nothing lingering. Overall, a nice dryish porter for a cold night.
