12oz. bottle from AKSmokedPorter. Thanks, dude!

Lovely auburn-caramel in color with an impressive tan-colored head. Thick. Long-lasting. Some nice lacing of the glass. Surprising amounts of "roasty toasty" in the nose. Toasted assortment of nuts here. Some caramel sweetness floats around as well. Flavor has a firm backbone of sweetness that nicely balances the nut flavors. Dark sugary caramel with some toasted, almost "charred oak" notes. Slight zing of hop influence at the end. Nice body. Good carbonation. One I'd certainly visit again.
