3.53/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Beer poured from bottle into a Tulip shaped glass

A - Body has a nice dark brown color; kind of runny, almost liquid; beer poured with a small white head, which disappeared rather quickly; no lacing formed on the side of the glass

S - Smoked wood; embers of a campfire; touch of roasted malt; slight ting of licorice; slight spice (chipotle) smell; molasses; some chocolate and coffee as the beer warms up

T - Quick smokey bite; spice; licorice; light molasses flavor; hint of cocoa and coffee beans as it warms up

M - Slightly effervescent and chewy; very, very smokey aftertaste; lingers for quite a while

D - Not bad, I'm not usually a fan of smoked porters but I'm definitely into the light but smooth smoked flavor profile of this beer; kind of light consistency for a porter

3.99/5  rDev +9%
look: 2.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I got this in a 22oz bomber for $1.25 at big lots! I am just sampling out of sample glass I got at oktoberfest here in fresno.
APPEARANCE: its a redish brown color dark but very see through, not like most other porters I have had. Had to pour pretty rough to get any kind of head.

SMELL: first off I smell straight roasted chocolate, its got just a very malt forward smell, I also smell raisins..like chocolate covered raisins, no hop aroma what so ever

TASTE: smokey roasty chocolate right off the bat! Light Coffee in the background, taste a little bit of the alcohol which is not suprising at 8%.

MOUTHFEEL: medium bodied

OVERALL: good but I've had better. I do like the smokey taste to it, they did that well. I like it though! On a scale of 1-10 I give it a 6

3.5/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a sam adams custom glass, color is dark brown, amber edging, head presents nicely at 1/2 inch thick dissipates to a ring that clings the glass with some bubbly lacing.

Smell is sweeter chocolate malt, some roast, no smoke, maybe some dry earthiness. A little disappointing.

Taste has a touch of subtle smoke flavor, mainly from its dry finish on the tongue, malt flavors are slightly sweet from chocolate and a solid roast flavor. Hops are subtle and bitter, earthy and drying. Very surprising this clocks in at 8%, nice flavors and drinkability.

Mouthfeel is as expected from a solid strong porter or smoked porter, nice lingering flavor profile, solid bitter presence on the tongue and cheeks.

Overall, a disappointing smoked porter but a solid easy drinking strong porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

22-oz bottle into porter/stout glass

A - shallow medium tan head over a body of pitch black with ruby highlights

S - mocha, chocolate milk, grainy malts, smoke

T - coffee, chocolate, malt sweetness, smoke, dark fruits, notes of wood

M - oily medium body (a bit lighter than expected), high carbonation

O - This is an excellent porter. Head retention is unimpressive and it could use a little more body, but the taste and smell are excellent!

3.65/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured chilled in ale glass

A: solid black; very good carbonation; decent head; ok lacing
S: smells of a stout, much like a Rasputina. Starts with smoke elemnt, but turns quickly to carmelized malt
T: smoke is a very light element of this beer; basically it's a classic stout/porter with a very dark roast profile; surprisingly sweet, not hoppy; strongly complex taste; well paired with the booze

Good! But don't expect a lot of smoke.
