A - Black pour with a thin foam head. No lacing of note, nor carbonation. Pour is noticably thick with a sludge-like consistency.

S - Smoky peat malt, vanilla, rich malt, and cocoa powder. Some peppery spice hit the nostrils.

T - Chocolate and malty, this beer gives to some heat of peppers. It has a tangible burn in the finish. The smoke gives it a roasted flavor akin to bbq'd meat.

M - Balance could be a bit better on this, but the complexity makes this an enjoyable sipper. I think the heat makes this a one and done beer.

O - Had this at Harry's in Atlantic City with some clams casino. a tasty beer from the south of Jersey. I'd go to this again for a smoked beer.

Served from tap at brewery a dark brown color with some light getting through and a frothy tan head that took its time to settle. Aroma is very dark roast heavy with notes of bitter chocolate, molasses and a light smokiness that comes through in a pleasant amount. Taste is full of layers. There was dark chocolate, light nuttiness, char, dark cherries, and a dash of smoke to put a twist on a traditional porter. The smoke was very well balance with the other flavors and welcomed by me. Nice smooth carbonation and medium to full body. This beer gives a lot of flavors for malt lovers and yet is easy to drink because everything is in good balance. I could drink a few of these for sure!

Appearance: Dark brown to black, with a small tan head, (maybe not an aggressive pour), not much head retention, as it was gone pretty quickly, with a little bit of lacing.
Smell: A nice rich smell of smokiness and oak, with a hint of vanilla, smells very good, looking forward to the taste
Taste: A very smokey taste, very rich and earthy, maybe a little overpowering on the smoke taste, but the malt and richness make it taste pretty nice
Mouthfeel: Feel is a bit thinner than usual but somehow a nice bit of creaminess, a good level of carbonation.
Overall: Wasn't sure what to expect of my first beer from these guys, but the experience was good, there's a lot of richness in this porter, with the smokiness a bit stronger than others I've had, but that isn't a bad thing. I'm looking forward to tasting some more brews from the Tuckahoe Brewing Company.

One pint of this is too much. Nice flavors but a little over the top.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smell is coffee, woody chocolate. Taste is chocolate and roasted notes. Not overly bitter like many porters. Feel is full and porter appropriate. Overall a solid porter that's good to drink.

22 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A--Just about black. Thin head with no real lacing. Looks just like you'd think a porter should.

S--Smoky, a bit of chocolate in there as well.

T--Has that burnt taste that I find a hallmark of good porters. Quite malty with chocolate that follows the nose.

M--Creamy but not as much as I expected. Carbonation gives it a proper balance,

O--Really a lot better than I was expecting from the backwoods of Jersey. Nice work guys!! A genuinely excellent porter
