This maybe the most smoky, smoked porter I have had the opportunity to try. I would love to do a side-by-side with Alaskan Smoked Porter. I have found few smoked beers I didn't like. Cinderbock was one that flopped on me but The Schlenkerla Rauchbiers are all flavor I enjoy. This beer though from Left Hand, ... came out of nowhere. I was not expecting all of this. WOW.
Appearance: Pours a dark almost black color with a beige head and a spotty cap.
Smell: The smoke aroma I could smell from across the table when Eric opened the bottle. Big burnt grant charcoal fire pit and molasses flavors fill the nose.
Taste: Again very smoky in the mouth. There is a smoked meat flavor, black licorice roasted chocolate toffee caramel, and coffee. Everything great about a porter plus the nice smoked flavors and campfire-like attribute.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and warm with the alcohol showing through and the smoke flavor hiding it. Cling to the cheeks.
Drinkability: This is a sipping beer. But very enjoyable sipping for sure.
Hope this is helpful.
Serving type: bottle
