I haven't had the chance to actually wash down some hog with it, but I look forward to trying it out next time I can.
First off, this is a SMOKED Porter, and it definitely has a SMOKY flavor, though it's clean and not particularly peaty. It's definitely not for faint of heart, and meant to be consumed with food rather than by itself - It's surprisingly refreshing for a smoked porter, but the smoky flavors would become overpowering if i were just trying to drink a six pack on the back porch. On the other hand, i can't imagine anything that would pair better with pulled pork barbecue or many strong meat flavors and spicy foods for that matter, an area where many beers fall flat... chili rubbed steak, burgers, sausage, jambalaya even.

Tap at Good Bottle co. A lighter brown pour than most, thin layer of frothy off white head.
Aroma, toasted malt, dark chocolate and very nice smokey wood.
Taste, herbal notes up front, followed by a nice beach wood and barbeque smoke. The smoke is husky. Some light chocolate malt. A pretty dry clean finish though.
Definetely more of a smoked beer, not much porter characteristics.
Not quite medium body, fairly lively carbonation. Drinks very easy, as long as you like smoke. A tad thin feeling, I think the finish is the only flaw.
Liked this one quite a bit, though a bit muddling in the finish.
Serving type: on-tap
