Bottle from Liquor Barn in Lexington, poured into a tervis tumbler (still don't have my glasses yet)

A: Rich dark, practically opaque, with a nice two-finger head, very tan, that diminishes but doesn't quite disappear after 2/3 of a beer. Seen better, but it's very good.

S: Rich caramel, malts, and chocolate.

T: A tasty porter. Rich is the word of the day. Complex malts and syrup initially, with a nice touch of hops and coffee on the back end. Bittersweet. Not as much obvious smoke, but an aftereffect of smoke that feels good.

M: Rich, and frothy without being foamy. Bubbly without going overboard, and a very pleasant feel on the tongue. Ideal for a porter.

O: I've been more blown away by porters (Founder's, Great Lakes,) but this is very good.

Review from 7/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours dark, almost black. Thin light brown head with little lacing. Roasty malts and light smoke throughout with a mellow roasty faint smoke finish. Not as smoky as a rauchbier or Smoke Jumper, but nicely made and tasty. Surprisingly tasty for a 6% beer. Medium bodied. Worth a revisit.

Picked up a bottle at Woodman’s in Rockford, IL in early 2012 since it is no longer sold in Wisconsin. Pours a dark brown color with off white foamy head. Has a mild smoked scent. Taste is robust yet still sweet with caramel malts finishing with a smoking flavor that delivers a hoppy after taste.

A - Pours a dark brown black color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some smoke and licorice, and a touch of coffee.

T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some lactose sweetness and a bit of smoke. Through the middle, some licorice comes through with a bit of bitter coffee and a bit more smoke. The finish is a mix of smoke, roasted chocolate, some earthy hops, and a touch of lactose sweetness.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a roasted, sweet, and smokey finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balanced smoked porter. The chocolate malts are really nice with the smoke flavor.
