look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with some amber highlights and a thin beige hue that quickly dissipates.

S: Smoked malty aroma with a sweet scent.

T: Similar to the smell there is a good smoked flavor to the beer with a middle sweetness and finished on the dry side. There is a spicy quality to this beer that reminds me of a chipotle brew.

M: Thick body and minimal carbonation.

O: Interesting smoked porter – could have used a little more flavor. It was good but not great.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer appears jet black in color but has traces of brown visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a thin tan head that instantly faded away, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Very light aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts along with notes of smoke and hints of coffee beans. A faint amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a good balance between the underlying porter and smoky flavors because neither dominates the overall taste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown in color (approaching black) with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some cola brown highlights. The beer has a thin beige head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with some lighter aromas of coffee. All of this is underneath a moderate to strong aroma of smoke.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts with some lighter notes of coffee. Moderate flavors of smoked malts and smoke but it does not overpower. Light amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront.

O: While the aromas of the smoke dominate, the flavors of the smoke are well integrated into the overall flavor of the beer and is it well balanced. Enjoyable and fairly easy to drink.
