Notes: Smoked Pigasus is a robust and delicious porter brewed with rye, smoked malt, and maple syrup. The maple syrup provides a perfect balance for the smoked malt. Smoked Pigasus pours a deep mahogany with aromas of chocolate, smoke, and caramel. A big thank you to Pappy's Smokehouse!

Appearance (4.5) : Very dark, with a very foamy, light-brown head. Very inviting.

Smell (5.00) : Oaty, Smoky, a hint of Sweet. This is a very complex smell but it's all tied together and made into a very simple smell. You can actually pick up on the syrup smell as well, surprisingly.

Taste (4.00) : Very dark and smoky, the maple syrup isn't very prevalent but becomes more prevalent as I drink.

Mouthfeel (4.00) : Leaves an extremely smoky flavor, I feel as though I'm inside a barbecue pit. The carbonation is also just right for this style of beer.

Overall (4.25) : Just an amazing beer in my opinion. Definitely a new favorite, especially around barbecue season.

The name had me really amped up and coming from 4 Hands, the excitement was there. It smells good but I noticed from that, there was no smokiness, mostly a roasted smell. No head to it, dark black color. After that, there wasn't much good about it. Not saying its a bad beer, it just didn't live up to the expectations I had for it. No smoke flavor to it at all, a little bit of a sweet tinge to it but not as much as I was expecting with the maple syrup. The bitterness wasn't as harsh, which was a nice thing, along with the chocolate coming along. So, overall, it wasn't a bad beer, just one of those beers with a lot going on that didn't quite deliver.

From bottle 6 months. Smells of smoky chocolate and toffee. Thin head and body. Flavor is chocolate, toffee, less smoke than the nose. Body is thinner that expected. I apptecoate the lack of booziness. Not getting any maple though. Solid beer.
