Thanks to JM03 for sharing!

Pours with a mostly black body, light tan finger of head. Leaves a bit of nice lace. Pretty potent meat smoked chocolate note on the aroma. Slight bits of coffee come through, but it's menial. Taste is not overwhelmingly smoky, but it still packs a punch. There's some sweet chocolate and slight bitter coffee on the finish, but the smokiness steals the show. The feel is creamy, near full bodied with a pleasant carbonation level.

I presume the base beer is the Pogue's, but these are almost miles apart.

It's kinda hard to tell which is better....either way, they're both fantastic growlers to take down!

Served in a stemless goblet.

Big thanks to hannydawg for sharing this growler!

Nice way to end an afternoon of beer-loving: a random growler of smoked porter. It pours a dark ruby-brown topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dusty cream-tan foam. The nose comprises bacon-covered baked potato, mesquite smoke, light char, and light maple syrup. The taste holds notes of beech smoke, light roasted malts, light char, and salty bacon bits. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a very dry finish. Overall, a very enjoyable bit of smoky goodness. 'Nuff said.

On tap at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend over the Christmas holiday. Served in a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very dark brown with a good light tan head and a good bit of lacing. The nose carries a beautiful combination of light smoke, cloves, and malty sweetness. Really fits the bill quite well. Flavor has clove and smoke plus a bit of chocolate and roast. Medium body with a semi-dry finish and a bit of sweetness. Really interesting and they absolutely nailed the concept.

Poured on tap at Chatham.

Pours black with a small off-white head.

Smells of deep roasted malts, coffee probably foremost. A little bit of molasses and just a hint of smoke.

Taste follows the nose pretty closely. A lot of the traditional roasted malts and coffee porter flavors are present and there is a very subtle hint of smoke with a little bit of added sweetness.

Pretty good creamy mouthfeel with medium-low carbonation.

This is a great local porter. The adjuncts are exactly that. They compliment the base porter flavor instead of overwhelm it. I'm not a huge fan of smoke in beers, but this is very subtle and adds a perfect smokiness to the beer. I love having another great local brewer.

Serving type: on-tap
