(From notes)

A - Half-finger of creamy rich tan head with just OK retention. Deep mahogany nearing on black in color

S - Light roastiness, but didn't pick up the smoke; dark fruit aromas as well

T - Light roasted malt; sweetness; dark fruits/plum flavors. Would have like a bit more roast/toast to cut through the sweetness

M - Lighter verging on thin; not bad; soft carbonation

D - Good, but a little bit cloying in the sweetness; but certainly not difficult or boring

Overall, a nice porter, but I think I would reach for a lot of others before revisiting. Definitely worth a look.

This porter was served in a pint glass from a tap.
Pitch black in color with almost no light penetration.
One finger mocha colored head that dissipates very slowly.
Aroma is all smoke, literally. Nothing else but smoke comes through in the nose. One of the smokiest porters I have had. Lives up to it's name as a smoked porter.
Taste akin to the aroma feels like a bonfire on the palate. Sweet upfront with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied porter that is easy to drink. However, the smokiness was just a tad overwhelming for my palate.
Definitely worth a try though.
