Enjoy by 1/22/15. 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a deep brown with auburn hues; fluffy tan head that leaves great retention and sticky lacing. Looks great. The aromas surprisingly have hints of citrus. I'm picking up some orange peel. Chocolate malts are there. The smoke is there, but seems subtle and not as smokey as expected. The flavors have lots of smokey aspects, but it's balanced. Tons of cocoa malts. Lots of grains. More citrus notes. There's a little hop bite. There's a nice bitterness, but it's not overpowering. Some dark fruits. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very smooth and creamy. Easy to drink. It really opens up as it warms.

This is a solid porter. It's not my favorite example of the style, but it's still impressive. I personally like their vanilla variant better though. It's good stuff, but not elite. It's still one of those classic brews everyone should try if they haven't already.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Lawson's tulip.

a: Black, clear ruby when seen through light. Half finger thick tan head receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild dark and caramel malt.

t: Big smoke up front followed by an almost equally big hop bite. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Smooth mediumn, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o; Sure lives up to its name! Smoke in abundance, perhaps the strongest of any similar type. A most enjoyable sipper. Have had their Vanilla bean version and enjoyed that, but this one packs an amazing smoky wallup.
