Draft offering at the Pitt location served in a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a brown head. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass and a thin film of brown clarity is seen around the edges.

This brew smells like your clothes after sitting by a campfire...in a good way. It is roasty and earthen with lots of char to the grain giving minor coffee and chocolate quality hiding under smoke.

The taste is quite smokey and earthen with char and molasses-like sweetness with a hint of raisony alcohol. It is almost woody into the aftertaste with the smoke being well integrated and enjoyable and not over-done.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is boozy and a sipper. I enjoyed the balance of booze, roast and smoke in this. I would drink it again. (794 characters)

A stronger version of the Up In Smoke Smoked Porter, this brew pours midnight black with a tan froth that leaves plenty of lace. Aroma of smoke, charcoal, malted milk balls and dark chocolate. In the flavor, a pleasant smoke with notes of chocolate. The alcohol was well hidden by the smoke and cocoa. Mildly bitter hops are working well with the coffee and char. Overall, this was a good beer. I'd get it again. (412 characters)

Pours a dark chocolate brown black color with an even toffee creamy layer of head that rests on top and doesn't subside.

Nice smoky aroma, charcoal, and roasted dark chocolate in the nose.

Follows the nose with a generous portion of smoke, dark chocolate, and Char flavor from start to finish. Concludes with a lingering bitter chocolate and char finish. The alcohol is incredibly well hidden with no effervescence or burn on the way down.

Very thick, full bodied, and silky smooth.

Nicely done. (500 characters)

Served on tap at Fat Heads in Pittsburgh. Snifter, thin tan head, similar lacing, blavk coffee color. Looks thick.

Smells roasty. Light coffee and malt.

heavy smoked profile, bacony, smoked meat and tobacco, malt and coffee flavors. Smoked meat/tobacco prominent.

Feels extreemly smooth virtually no carbonation, almost syrupy like a barrel aged stout.

Overall fantastic Porter, one if my favorites. (405 characters)
