Style: Smoked Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A porter with hints of chocolate & coffee balanced by subtle smokiness
First Release: December 1996

When first released, our smoky version of a traditional English porter was ahead of its time. Today, it's a highly regarded staple among craft beer fans and our go-to food complement, pairing effortlessly with all kinds of cuisine, from peanut butter and banana sandwiches to braised pork belly and apple pie. This worldly libation is dark, smooth and complex, with chocolate and coffee flavors suffused with subtle smokiness from the addition of peat-smoked malt.

Had this more than once at Lucky Baldwins is Pasadena. 5 dollars a pint. WHAT???? (Cherumbim is the raddest server ever)

A: One of the most attractive aspects of this beer is the inky blackness of it, topped with the mocha head that clings all the down the glass, right until the last swallow.

S: Mocha, baking chocolate, campfire, pancake syrup, and malt, with a touch of spiciness.

T: sweet malty goodness, very light smoke profile and rich mocha, not too strong on the hops, but good balance from the bitter toasted grain component.

M: Smooth as silk. Light carbonation makes this go down like chocolate milk almost.

O: This is an old standby for me. Not a great summer brew, but when the weather starts turning ugly this becomes one of my favorite session beers.
