12 oz bottle poured into a 9 oz Libbey Embassy snifter. Pours dark, inky brown with short head of khaki foam; a fringe persists with minimal lacing. Complex, smoky aroma stars - charred wood, slightly savory smoke and plenty of roasted malt. Dark, roasted malt continues in the taste with slight savory notes (soy?), hints of dark fruit, tobacco smoke, and crisp bitterness. Medium, creamy body - lighter than its color or aroma suggest - with light carbonation. A basic stout highlighting some nice smoked malt character.

Poured out black with a nice 1 finger of head. The aroma is of smoke and roasted malts. Flavor is smoke, all I can think of is sitting around a camp fire and breathing in the smoke. I don't really get anything else from this beer. To be honest this is the first smoked porter I have had. I think it is made well just not a beer at this point that I enjoyed very much. Evil Twin makes some great stuff. Have a great day my friends.

Smoking! Almost pitch black with a tan head that stays quite firm down the glass. The aroma is smoky with dark roast and a hint of vanilla. The mouthfeel is full bodied with some smoke on the tongue and full blooded malt on to the fore. Hoppy finish shows it is more of a stout than a porter, but it is still very tasty.

Poured into a Dogfish traditional oversized snifter. Bottleneck says 345:14, so almost a year old.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/4 inch medium brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Big smoke presence in the aroma with some slightly sweet vanilla/chocolate notes accompanying.

T- Has more of that honey barbecue smokey character rather than that burnt, ashy quality. A bit of booze plus some char and roast. There's a tad bit of sweetness but the smoke and roasted malt reign supreme on this one. Chocolaty aftertaste.

M- Slightly creamy with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Would really like to see what a 2 or 3 years would do to this beer since it's still pretty smoky and bold in flavor after less than a year of age on it.

Jet-Black like gasoline. If you like the Laphroaig whiskey, like smoked ham and cured meats, this is the beer for you. Mildly bitter, and sharp alcoholic flavors. Slight coffee and tastes like burnt ends of baby back ribs. This one is very new for me--I've never had a smoked porter before. Don't look for anything milky like the left-hand milk stouts (or the kentucky bourbon) this one is a lot more sassier. Great if you enjoy good amounts of peatiness in a beer. I'm not there yet, so I could take/leave.

Smells like a black olive, has an extremely strong smoked wood flavour. Along with your typical porter build, it's alright.

Pitch black with a copper tinge and topped with a half finger head of chocolate milk colour.

Smoke, chocolate, sweet dark fruits, a slight peat quality. There also some garlic and steel.

Amazingly light in taste for the colour, chocolate, steel and a hint of potted meat or hot dog, less smokiness than I'd expected.

Smoothly covers alcohol but you feel the burn in the throat. Oily, a little foamy carbonation.

Found at Beer Lab in Chiang Mai. Drank Oct. 3rd, 2015. Little disappointed based on expectations and price, but certainly covers its alcohol. Not the smokiness I wanted either.
