Had this on tap at the Red Onion. Okay so its a tourist bar but they have a good beer selection and food that my kids would eat.
Beer was served a litle too cool for this style but warmed sufficiently in a few minutes. Poured deep - no scratch that - opaque brown with a sticky tan head.
Aroma was sweet molasses, faint hops and a healthy whiff of smoked malts.
Taste was balanced and only slightly smoky. Some fruity ale yeast, some rich malt, some chocolate and a healthy dose odf smoke. Nice dry finish.
Mouth feel was oily and slik with only slight carbonation evident.
Wonderfully drinkable after a nice light lunch on a cool Alaska afternoon.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. black with a nice head with retention.
Smell: Smoke, caramel, coffee, chocolate nirvana.
Taste: Delivers amazing balance of smooth smoke with an amazing finish. I am in love with the smoked flavor. Doesn't over power like some. So well balanced.
Drinkability: This beer is my go to for the love of beer. If you don't like porters, or smoked beer stay away. if you like smoked porters, this is the one. Stone is close, but not as good.

22oz bottle, 2013 release, dated on label 09/10/13. Picked up in WI by a friend on vacation. I was super stoked to try this, as I've wanted to for years!
L - tall, creamy tan head sits atop a blackened ale, head retention is good, leaving some lacing as it fades
S - huge smoked aroma - reminds me of smoked salmon. Roasted barley, chocolate, grain, caramel present as well
T - heavy smoked malt, biscuity, caramel, toasty, spicy earthy hops provide nice moderate bitterness and perfect balance
F - full body, creamy and smooth, pleasant carbonation, finishes semi-dry and spicy
O - finally got to try it and it delivered. I have an affinity towards smoked beers, and this is top notch. I'll definitely buy this if I ever see it again.
