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.
