Bomber in trade from jbwimer. Pours deep dark brown to black with a one finger dark khaki head.aroma is more roast than smoke, with big chocolate notes, still some definite smoke, and a hint of earthy coffee. Flavor is lots of roasty chocolate and awesome, some long smokey finish going on here, and ends with chocolate and even a hint of vanilla coffee (maybe my taste buds are broken). Really rich flavors here. Dark fruits begin coming out just a tad as I go. Huge mouthfeel--especially for only 7.5%--with medium carbonation. I am amazed at the body on this. This might be one of my new favorite porters. Must get more.

Had this beer on tap. It was very dark with a great thick head. Nice choclate,coffee nose. Full rich slightly sweet choclate/coffee flavor with a hint of licorce. I didnt get much of a smoke flavor though. Rich mouthfeel. This is a great example of a dark beer from a great brewery. One of my favorites from Lavery.

This beer apparently had some over carbonation problems in the past. Well, not in my case.
It was lack of, really, no head at all. The color was a deep cola brown.
The aroma was roasted and dark malts with subtle hints of chocolate. No smoke that I could percieve.
The taste was smoky but seems out of place, Roasted malts are there as well as some off flavors like meat or earth.
There is some roasted malts and dark malts but are overwelmed by the smokiness to the point of being almost absent.
I think a differnt wood should be used and at a smaller amount .
