Pours dark black color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, hops, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes roasted malt, slight sweet malt, slight alcohol, hops, and some slight smoke. Overall, a great appearance, good blend, body, and complexity.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a very dark brown body with a somewhat thin, light mocha head that reduces to a thin white film.

S- I'm really straining to smell something here. I'm not sure if it's my nose today as this is the first beer I'm reviewing, but I'm getting very faint coffee, toasted malt notes with some dark fruit undertones.

T- There we go. Upfront, a rich smoked wood flavor that is reminiscent of smoked barbecue (in the best way possible). I also get dark chocolate and black coffee notes. Finishes with a bitter, smokey, toasted malt flavor. Delicious and balanced taste.

M- Thick oily body, low carbonation. Creamy.

Overall this was a very enjoyable brew. The smokiness was not overdone, just enough to enjoy it. Complex and balanced. The only thing missing was a side of hickory smoked ribs. Find this and try it.

A- Pours a cola brown color with a thick coffee foam head that leaves lots of lacing.

S- Nice roasted malt nose with hints of chocolate, coffee and hickory.

T- Huge roasted/smoke flavor with a fair amount of sweetness in the finish. A bit of hoppy bitterness but not really any hop flavor. Tons of roasted dark malt flavors are evident throughout with flashes of black coffee, bitter sweet chocolate, caramel, licorice, anise, and hickory.

M- Fairly full bodied for a porter with adequate carbonation. Long smoke/roasted finish.

D- A nice brew that is full of flavor and very drinkable.
