Probably one of Port City's best beers but not one for everyone. Body is black with minimal head like a porter/stout but blindfolded this could've been a rauchbier for all I knew b/c it smells so smoky and meaty, probably a touch of sweet malt gives it away. I really like the smokiness/gaminess of beer (and I don't eat meat at all, mind you) which is heavy on tongue but completely overpowering. This allows for a mellow balance that gives off just enough sweetness to counter the "meat" flavor without compromising the smoke aspects of the beer. An enjoyable beer that nicely blends two different styles.

The beer comes in a dark brown black color.

The aroma has licorice, bitter chocolate, coffee, heavy caramel, roasted malt, and earthy hops.

The flavor follows of licorice, molasses, chocolate. The beer has a chewy mouthfeel with roasted coffee on the finish. There's a bacon and woody bitter quality throughout.

An extremely well done imperial stout.

Served in a tasting sized sample at the brewery.

A: Appearance was a little darker than I was expecting. Coffee colored brown. Not much head.
S: Not getting much of a smokey smell at all. I was expecting this to be heavier on smoke.
T: The taste follows the smell. The smoke taste is very slight, but still a nice beer. This would probably appeal to drinkers who have tried Smoked Beers in the past and thought they were too bacony or smokey.
M: Smooth and easy to drink. Pretty much what I was expecting in a smoked beer. Very easy to drink.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one. I'm a fan of smoked beers, and typically I think the smokier the beer, the better, but this one stands tall with a very subtle smokiness.

Serving type: on-tap
