poured on tap into Nonic pint at the brewery.

A - Dark, murky cola colored with a thin light brown cap. Minimal lacing.

S - Subtle roasted malts with a light charcoal scent. The faint smokiness comes from the Beach wood smoked malts. Hints of slight coffee and sweet chocolate round it out.

T - Enjoyable dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. A pleasant sweet, light smokiness from the Beach wood smoked malt. This is a very good Porter.

M - Smooth, creamy and fairly full bodied.

O - A solid Porter from K4 that adds to their selection of beer. The smoked malts were and excellent choice.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong smoke, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of pale malt, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth fee is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong smoke, slight hop, slight sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend. The smoke is not over-powering, but an integral component.

A slightly smoked porter that shows off the breweries ability to craft some great malty beers. Slightly tart and acrid (not in a bad way) from the roasted malts balanced by the perfect amount of sweetness and smoke. A tartness from the yeast brings some diversity. A great beer to have on tap year-round.
