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.

3.28/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.25 A: Black color. One finger of frothy tan head. Retention is about average and some irregular lacing is left.

3.5 S: Porcine and camp fire smokiness. A light graininess with moderate roastiness. On the drier side, but is mixed with caramel sweetness.

3.25 T: Roasty with hints of ash. Campfire smokiness, grain, an almost tanginess that may come from the smoked malt. Caramel sweetness just falls short of balancing out the roastiness. Could use a bit more refinement.

3.0 M: Lighter medium body. A bit more carbonation than I'd prefer. Lacking creaminess.

3.25 D: It's okay, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Pours black with a fading off-white head.
Nose shows sweet malt with roasted overtones and hints of chocolate. Somewhat subtle.
Sweet flavours too, almost baltic porter-like but without the roast to support it. Cloying.
Body feels a little watery.

Paid 3 bucks for the single. Into a stein.

A - A fairly deep black brown with just a 1/4 inch of mocha head that pulls back to a thick lace ring.
S - Fairly sweet maybe vanilla? Sweeter malts lead the roasty bite of the typical porter. Mild chocolate and cocoa notes as well.
T - Pretty good the sweeter chocolate malts with a touch of coffee leads acidic roasty malts in the finish. Maybe it's the hops but it has an herbal hint as well. Not bad.
M - Light to medium bodied, drinks very well for 8%.

Overall I have had better porters especially for under 3 dollars. Still for what its worth its not terrible...

Dark cola brown with pretty much no head at all after a regular pour. Actually, this pretty much looks like Coke to me. Though it does leave some lacing down the glass, redeeming itself from complete cola appearance.

Sweet smelling with a kind of dark fruit thing going on, similar to a scotch ale or dopplebock, but not really. Not much else, not picking up any smokiness, chocolate, roasted malts, or anything I was expecting to smell. Very subdued. Not bad, just not exciting.

The smoke comes through much more strongly in the flavor department, in a good way. I'm not getting the dark fruits I was smelling at all, oddly, just mostly the smoke and roasted malts. Not much in the way of chocolate, coffee, hops, or any of the other things that tend to round out a good porter, but I definitely enjoy the smoke and roast coming through in this one - not bad.

Moderate to heavy body with very little carbonation. Seems like it should have much more of a bite, but pretty smooth anyway. Not a bad feel, but not great.

This one's okay. I think it could use some work to make it more interesting, to compliment the smokiness which does work pretty nicely here. It's just a little flat and not very complex. The alcohol is not noticable to me, despite the higher ABV. Not bad.
