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.

A pitch black beer with a rapidly disappearing head, the nose reminds me of an imperial stout, but the flavors are thin and blend together to form a dry roasted nut flavor. The mouthfeel is very thin with almost no carbonation. The smoke flavor is nearly nonexistent, and the flavors are nothing to shake a stick at.

Aroma is toffee, caramel, dark malts and a hint of spice. The flavor is dark malts, mild smoked malts, fruit, chocolate and the signature porter acidity found only in the great porters.
