Appearance - Very dark and brownish in color.

Smell - Smells as if there are deep aromas of coffee and an espresso flavor.

Taste - Smokey with some coffee flavoring in it. Great to have with a cigar in a hot tub after a long day of skiing in the mountains of Utah!

Mouthfeel - Little carbonation - heavy drink.

Drinkability - Drank a ton in the hot tub!\

Note - I had this both out of a bottle and on tap - draught is better!

Nice dark choclate flavor adds to this otherwise standard porter.

This pour had a dark brown body with a rich, creamy, one inch head. Light roasted, earthy scent. Taste was as I expected; smooth roasted brown malts. Very light mouth feel and reminiscent of Guinness draft. I could have more than a few of these. An all around great porter that I was glad to run into.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a pils glass.

A-black walnut and a tan head

S-toast, roast, smoky

T-biscut flavor, almost a mesquite smoke aftertaste

M-medium

D-Truth be told, only got this beer for the name and I was in Utah. After having a lot of crumby beers earlier in my visit, I was very suprised by this beer. It was quite flavorful and the smokiness is very unique. I did as the label told, "why have just one".

This was available on tap when I visited Squatters Pub and Brewery and how could I pass this up? I remember when they advertised it on a local billboard several years ago, leading to a huge outcry and really putting them on the map.

It had a foamy, light-tan head upon arrival. The color was a deep, dark-brown with ruby highlights. The nose was roasty and chocolaty. The mouthfeel was very effervescent, creating a tingling sensation on the tongue. I got a light chocolate/charcoal taste on the tongue. The finish had a lingering chocolate flavor. I ended up just having one but only because I did not have multiple wives to take some home to, plus the Provo Girl had been crooking her index finger in my direction for some time up to that point ...

A big thanks to Amanda for this extra!

Poured deep brown in my Duvel tulip. An impressive off-white head sat 2" high and offered large rings of lace. Deep garnet hues in the light. The aroma was somewhat odd. Metallic and perfumey, it kind of reminded me of a horribly infected beer by Cooperstown Brewery. But there was an underlying sweetness and touch of coffee and chocolate that was its saving grace. The flavor, however, is quite nice. Well balanced caramel and biscuity sweetness with a smooth, coffeelike roast. Hint of tanginess in the finish. Incredibly smooth, the carbonation is nearly perfect. Could use a bit more of a body, as the combination of flavors and texture is still leaving this a bit thin. However, it is light and refreshing and I would drink this incessantly. Thanks again, Amanda!
