Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bishopgary on 12-06-2010

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.

Pours a dark brown color, some carbonation, small fizzy off-white head, with minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with a slight chocolate/coffee note, not much of a smoked presence at all. The taste is malty, kinda sweet, some smokyness, chocolate/coffee notes. Medium body. Drinkable, another Epic brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 22oz bottle.

A: Black, with hints of a warm brown around the edges. Not much head, slight foam faded quickly, left a bit of lacing. Not poured very vigorously though.
S: Wanted a stronger aroma. Only a hint of smoke. There is also a bit of chocolate, roasted malt and burnt (in a good way) coffee that you expect from a porter.
T: Quite good, The smoke flavor is balanced nicely upfront by the malt and hint of sweetness. There is also just the briefest hint of hops. The amount of smoke is nearly perfect here, not overwhelming. You definitely know the smoke is there but you can also taste the other components.
M: Medium-light body. I was expecting something a bit heavier, but was pleasantly surprised. Coated the mouth well, without lingering too long like some smoked beers can. Fairly light on the carbonation, but there is a pleasant tingle.
D: I am not usually one to say that I would drink a few smoked beers in the same evening. However I feel this balanced enough to be enjoyed in larger quantities.
