Picked up a bomber at Abe's Cold Beer for $8.50. I was looking forward to it, but it clearly has an infection. Nothing terrible, but there's a clove and plastic character that's run away with this beer. It's a shame, I've had this happen with homebrews. I imagine that's also the source of the over-carbonation. I can't finish this. There's a little smoke and roast in the flavor, but this beer is lost.

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.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, Pa
Decent brew. Poured dark brown-black with a small cap of tan head; moderate lacing and retention. Aroma was pretty roasty, dark malts, coffee, a bit of smoke. Taste was pretty good and followed the aroma well; not quite as robust as I like in a smoked beer, and maybe a bit too roasty, and even a bit, hmm, briny? Medium body, and fairly drinkable, but probably not something I'd get again.

3.4/5 rDev -10.8%
Appearance: pours a dark brown, almost black color with a short 1/4" head that breaks down quickly.
Smell: light roasted malt aroma with a hint of dark chocolate.
Taste: mild roasted malt profile with some dark chocolate, a hint of dark brown sugar, and a bit of a smokey flavor create a mellow but balanced porter.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smooth and thin at the finish. Aftertaste is long as the flavors linger on the tongue.
Overall: this is a pretty decent porter, but it won't blow you away. The smoke component is a bit weak, but it doesn't detract from the overall flavor profile. Easy to consume.
