1.13/5 rDev -70.7%
A: Dark, no lacing, minimal head, very unflattering
S: Smokey, smells like barbecue potato chips
T: Repugnant, it tastes like liquid smoke
M: Nothing much here, almost flat
O: I never thought I would find myself saying I regret drinking a beer, but alas here we are. I felt sick to my stomach afterward. Maybe I got a terrible batch, as others seem to like it, but this was a violent assault on my taste buds, and later, my GI tract.

A - Pitch black with 1.5 fingers of tan milky head, spotty lacing.
S - Excellent aroma, nice hickory and oak, some burnt bacon, a little nutty, toffee and biscuit notes.
T - Taste lacks in the smoke, could use a lot more, a good porter though for sure, nice rich malt, a little bit of that bacony type flavor, toasted grain, a little nutty too.
M - Very creamy and rich, but still on the medium side.
O - Good Smoked porter, just wish it had more potency in the flavor.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—only faint traces of red are visible near the corner of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that died down ,leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell has moderate aromas of smoked peat are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of smoked peat along with slight hints of molasses.
M: It feels light-to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is not your average smoked parter—it has a strong amount of smoked peat in the aromas akin to something you would expect from a stronger stout.

Undated 12 oz bottle with updated label showing the 2004 GABF Gold medal (best smoked beer).
Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a small, weak head. Lacing is nonexistent.
Aroma: rather strongly smoky such that the other dark roasted malts are nearly hidden. A hint of sweet, dark fruits.
The flavor is less smoky, but still at least medium.
Feel: medium-full body with (overly) light carbonation.
O: a rich, smoky porter that will work great with beef and other meats.

Deep black meets the eye but the real dark brown coloring reveals itself at the edges as a small bit of light is able to penetrate. The head was a bit fizzy, mounted well but dissipated quickly.
The scent is smokey with a sweet dried meat aroma. Beef jerky and a cured smoked pork aroma are also evident. Plenty thick in the nose it's just short of truly telling.
Not a lot of porter character here this seems to be all Rauschbier. The taste is more to the sweet smoked meat. A note of true smoke passes the palate near the finish. The meat flavors are more pork, with an above average sweetness and then a dry Smokey finish.
The feel is a bit thin but good enough, less carbonated than it appears and slightly dry.
Overall, I really like this. Just a step below the true German Rauschbier it has true character.
