3.33/5  rDev -9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: dark murky cola like, no head from this bottle, little lacing with each sip but nothing stays on the glass. On the second bottle poured I might have gotten a quarter inch tan head with a tad more lacing. So, with more head you get more lacing? I'll have to bounce that one off my wife.

Nose: smoky wood for sure and it reminds me of light hickory smoke for this moment in time, mocha coffee is what I get after that

Flavors: wonderful coffee flavor for the coffee lover like me; dark roasted grains; a little dark chocolate bite;

Mouthfeel: short after taste, nothing seems to linger on the palate, slight bitterness on the finish, smooth on the delivery, low carbonation.

To the Point: A nice smoked porter. Not over smoked … not under smoked … seems just right to me. I personally like the coffee note. A fairly tasty porter overall but, do I want fairly tasty for 16 bucks a six pack. I do like it. If it was 9 bucks a six pack I am buy more.

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

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - pours a deep opaque mahogany/almost black with an initial one inch khaki head, no real retention or lacing.

S - coffee and chocolate and smoke oh my, fairly strong

T - very sweet and malty with coffee and chocolate flavors and a finish that is smoky (but not as smoky as say Stone SmokedPorter). Also some lemon notes present in the finish. Barely perceptible alcohol warming, but it is there.

M - average thickness and carbonation

O - underwhelming

3.74/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Deep-hued, mahogany body with a very thick, rocky, off-white head. Prominent smoke aroma; ash and charcoal. Rich malt flavor; charred grain and mild sweet chocolate; crisp bitterness. Light to medium bodied; clean; semi-dry finish.

A nice, rather robust and flavorful smoked dark ale. Here's a porter that good stand some more oomph in its body to truly make it better rounded. Additional flavors emerge with more sips: some vanilla mocha notes. All in all, not bad, but good stand a few improvements.

3.39/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep deep brown color with only the edges of the beer providing some light. The head is of moderate volumn but is dense and leaves some spotty lacing.

The aroma is of a milk stout. Milk sugars provide sweetness as well as a noticable caramel aroma. There is a hint of smoke if you are looking for it but gets hidden in the overall sweetness.

The taste is of a slight roast which is quickly over taken by a milky sugarness. Tons of caramel flavor as well. A bit cloying with these flavors. There is some smoke but its quite subtle. The beer reminds me of chocolate milk when you don't add nearly enough chocolate syrup.

Moderate feel with prickly carbonation. Sweet on the palate with a slight smoke bitterness in the finish.

A very one dimensional beer. Quite sweet with some chocolate notes and a hint of smoke. Needs more roasty and/or roasty flavors.

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.

4.29/5  rDev +17.2%
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.
