Smoked Pigasus is a robust and delicious porter brewed with rye, smoked malt, and maple syrup. The maple syrup provides a perfect balance for the smoked malt. Smoked Pigasus pours a deep mahogany with aromas of chocolate, smoke, and caramel. A big thank you to Pappy's Smokehouse!

Appearance (4.5) : Very dark, with a very foamy, light-brown head. Very inviting.

Smell (5.00) : Oaty, Smoky, a hint of Sweet. This is a very complex smell but it's all tied together and made into a very simple smell. You can actually pick up on the syrup smell as well, surprisingly.

Taste (4.00) : Very dark and smoky, the maple syrup isn't very prevalent but becomes more prevalent as I drink.

Mouthfeel (4.00) : Leaves an extremely smoky flavor, I feel as though I'm inside a barbecue pit. The carbonation is also just right for this style of beer.

Overall (4.25) : Just an amazing beer in my opinion. Definitely a new favorite, especially around barbecue season.

On tap at 44 Stone in Columbia, MO.

A - Poured an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of bubbly foam. It left sudsy trails lace on the glass.

S - It smelled very smokey and bacon-like.

T - Bacon-like taste. It really did have bacon taste. Smokey with a sweet maltiness for balance.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a clean finish.

O - This is a very good smoked porter. Love the mild smoke and bacon flavor.

The Smoked Pigasus was a great porter from 4 Hands. This beer poured a rich opaque dark with slight ruby hue and had tan head that laced. The scent was chocolate, earth, roast and maybe a touch of smoke. The taste was well balanced and followed the scent with mostly roast and peat being present. The mouthfeel was full in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid porter and I'd drink this again FO SHIZZ!

Dark brown body with a light mohagany hue around the edges. Short tan head with no lacing.

It had a great smokey scent coming from it, as to be expected. It had notes of both tabacco and wood charcoal lumps. There was a slight maple presence, too. Really good aromatics of a smoked beer.

If you like smoke flavor, you'll like this beer. The taste is heavy on the tobacco and bbq smoke with a light sweet finish. The smoke lingers for quite a while.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied with good carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer and the smoke was done just right for my liking. The smoke has a strong presence but if you're into that, try this one.
