Son-in-Law and I shared a 0.73 litre bottle he brought back from Philadelphia last year: it was broached on 6th Feb 2014, smoking!
One of the most intensely smoked beers I've ever had, I struggled to pick up any other flavours at first because of the burnt smoky depth it had. Slowly dark chocolate and ground coffee esters began to fight their way through the ashtray style feel.
We managed to finish it off, just: we'll not be having another.
I've tried to score it objectively.

Been to the brewery several times and always try what's on tap - had the Humdinger series - I am a fan of porters, and maybe I just tasted it after something very mellow - but it was so smoky I could not even finish the tasting pour, it was like eating a block of charcoal. I've never in my life not finished a tasting pour of a beer... Ever.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a dark black with a slightly tanned head. Leaves a few spots of lacing on the side.
S: Not an overpowering aroma. Hints of roasted malt and faint smokiness. Things wake up when it warms giving you some nice dark fruit qualities.
T: Flavor is pretty good. The roasted malts go nice with the light smoke flavor. Dark fruits are present. Just a touch of alcohol on the back-end.
M: Light to medium body with a somewhat thin feel to it. Slightly oily. Low carbonation. Finish is easy enough.
Overall its a good selection from Magic Hat. The concept is well executed and works well. Not as complex as it could be but an easy sipping tasty beer.
