4.58/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dark coffee brown, almost black with a small tan head that doesn't stick around for very long. Not really any lacing.

Dark smokey roasted malts as hoped from the name, with some sweet chocolate hints to balance. A little vanilla. Very sweet and savory smelling, I like it a lot.

Even more of the smoke on the flavor, but not super crazy because it's quickly balanced out by the sweet chocolate flavors and some of the usual porter malt flavors, with just a hint of hop bitterness to even it out. I get a hint of that vanilla I was smelling too. Pretty complex and evenly balanced.

Full bodied with fairly light carbonation but a nice crisp bite to it anyway. Somehow it still feels like a porter - granted it's an imperial porter, but still, I get the classification.

Really nice. I'm a big fan of smoked beers and this one didn't disappoint at all. I get plenty of the smoke, but not to the point where it's completely overwhelmed or the other parts are neglected. Very well crafted and balanced.
