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!

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.

pours dark black, not thick in any way, light creamy head. bits of lacing.

smoke up front, after a bit mostly light maple syrup and roasted malt, maybe some espresso.

very smoked forward. nice rye bite, but with a sweetness through out. the maple syrup is very faint. charred and burnt finish.

light feel but a moderate carbonation. fills it out a bit.

i was pleased, this was pretty fun and easy to drink. very forward but never overpoering or dull.

this was good, a porter made with smoked rye malt and maple syrup. having just come from square one and having their maple stout though, i thought this was a let down. the pour is rich and chocolatey brown with an inch of mocha head. the nose is overpowered by the smoke and spice from the rye, and none of the maple really comes through. the same is also true of the flavor unfortunately, which as a smoked porter is excellent. the smoke isnt too strong, the rye is really potent, and the feel is smooth and creamy. id just like to see more maple flavor worked in with those other two big bold characters. still a tasty drink, nice this time of year. the use of rye in this is perfect, so any enthusiast of that should give this a go.

Up from Jacksonville FL and stopped in at the brewery.

A: half finger head on a near jet black body. Excellent thick lacing.

S: Milk chocolate, roasted malt and a nice amount of coffee.

T: roasted malts, coffee, smoked malts. Simple but very good.

M: medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish.

Overall: this one has a lot of great smoked and roasted flavors none of which are overwhelming. This is surprisingly drinkable for the style. Another excellent brew from this brewey.

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.
