Style: Smoked Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

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.

A: Low carb, not very much head, nice brown. 3.7

S: meaty, smoky, brown notes.

T: very light porter, with a smokey after taste and a slight aftershock hoppyness

M: low carb on the tongue hold, smooth going down.

O: not a bad porter, drinkable and smooth, very light for a smoky beer. I'd give it a 4

Poured from the bottle a deep dark brown with orange hues and a thick and frothy off-white head.

Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, raisins and chocolate. I expected a lot of smoke but found none.

Tastes of sweet roasted malts, chocolate, dark ripe fruit, and vanilla. Aftertaste of subtle light smokiness.

Medium-to-thick mouthfeel, creamy, and lightly carbonated.

I'm a wimp when it comes to smokey beers but this one is my favorite. The smokiness is subtle and lets the other flavors and aroma shine through. Right up my alley. One to try and enjoy.
