Had at the Blue Smoke airport bar in JFK. Poured into a pint glass (woohoo 16oz!) Poured dark as night with a thin tan head that left good lacing. Smells of smoked meats, gotta love that smoke beer aroma. Taste was really good, more of a rauchbier than a porter, though. There was some sweetness and dark malts around, but the dominate flavor was smoke. Body ended up being way too heavy and the smoke was a bit overbearing, so it loses some points in the feel. Overall a delicious beer that stands up there with the Aecht Schlenkerla rauchbiers in terms of flavor.
