This nostalgic porter evokes memories of chocolate and coffee around a campfire. The cherry wood smoked malt used in this beer gives it a heavy smokiness that blends smoothly into the chocolate malty body. With a silky finish this porter is ideal for sipping on a cold winters eve.

Poured into snifter glass. First time drinking a smoked porter in general.

Appearance: poured translucent black into the glass. An inch of off white-foam built up and dissipated quickly. Moderate lacings around the glass. Beer is black in color yet not jet black like an imperial stout.

Smell: a bit of burnt malt and floral sweetness. Just a touch of chocolate and maybe little bit of dark fruit.

Taste: starts out sweet. The subtle smoked offering comes midway through and finishes slightly burnt. The after taste is some sort of burnt sweetness...almost like burnt brown sugar. The smoked flavor is subtle, not a huge centerpiece. While this is my fist smoked porter and I have nothing to compare to, I really liked the smokiness that is not an overwhelming aspect of the beer. Definitely not like sitting around the campfire yet it is fantastic.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied and moderate carbonation. It's smooth and creamy.

Overall: it's a great bang for your buck. Costed less than five dollars and was very flavorful. Will definitely buy this again.
