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!

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.

I poured a bottle into a goblet.
Appearance- Dark brown color with a fingers worth of tan head. Light amount of runny lacing.
Smell- Smoke and chocolate aromas with a light hint of maple.
Taste- Dark roasted and smoked malt flavors with a vanilla sweetness. Chocolate notes with a hint of maple. I am not really tasting any rye flavors.
Mouthfeel- Full bodied and smooth. Light amount of carbonation with a dry finish.
Overall- A very good porter. Worth having again.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Smoke? Check. Pun in the name? Double-check. Let's do this shit, said I in the beer aisle. This stuff pours a nearly opaque midnight sienna topped by a finger or so of sandy suds. The nose comprises dark hickory smoke, cocoa powder, roasted malts, and a touch of brown sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with the smoke thoroughly up front and sticking throughout and the brown sugar taking on a more molasses-y turn. Things seem overly dry and nearly harsh, though, as the smoke and roast aren't very forgiving. The body is a stolid medium, with a moderate carbonation and a rather drying finish. Overall, a nice enough smoked porter, but I felt it was a tad too dry and overly-roasted to truly shine. Still, I wouldn't shy away from a repeat tasting sometime in the future.
