Maybe my pallate isn't appreciative of smke flavored beer. It seemed interesting so i thought id give it a try, but the scent and flavor just doesnt work for me. It's got a darker color and heavier profile which is nice. The smokey flavor and smell makes me think im eating food rather than enjoying a nice beverage.

Tasted on tap at the brewery - fantastic beer with excellent utilization of the smoked malts. Very balanced. Need to get a bottle to review.

This is the only store bought O'fallon product that I've almost enjoyed. I enjoyed it because it is rather absurdly as advertised-- it is a porter which tastes smokey. There are no smokey depths, which would make this a beer worth getting excited about. Rather it's an okay (if sort of thin) porter with a smokey bite.

Black color,deep rich aroma of malt and smoke. The taste was a bit rough,the smoke came off charred and became unpleasant. It's not a poorly made beer,just a taste that didn't work well for me

After the first taste you it starts to go down easier, the first bit is a shock. Smokey, grilled taste, some malts but the smoke up front will drive the taste.

Taste Rating in Words: Similar to eating an overcooked burger from the grill.

A - cool bottle. Not pouring this one. I don't believe pouring a beer should be a requirement for a beer review.
S - huge smoke, chocolate malts. Dark roasty malts. Everything a smoked porter should be.
T - big smoke taste, chocolate malts, roasty dark malts, slight coffee, milk chocolate, cream, bbq
M - medium mouthfeel, alc covered. Aftertaste is smoke, malty.
O - pretty perfect smoked beer. Things that could add to it - if it were a bigger beer, heavier mouthfeel, more dark beer flavor. Barrel aging this IF it was a bigger beer would be AMAZING, like Stones smoked old guardian or the bruery smoking wood - god damn both of those were amazing.

Dark brown color with brown head that fizzes away really fast. Aroma has smoked malt, charred wood, sweet toasted malts and some brown sugar. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty with some brown sugar and caramel and finishes slightly more roasty and more balanced but overall it's still on the sweet side. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a legit smoked porter but it's not special in any way.

Pours black with an 8mm khaki head. Head retention is so-so, with no lacing. Rich biscuit, toasted, and roasted malts, mixed in with a whiff of smoke in the aroma. The flavor profile has a layer of smoke throughout, with other notes of roasted and toasted malts. It tastes and feels dark with a wonderful smoke layer mixed in at a good balance. Mouth feel has a medium consistency and is otherwise velvety. Overall, it's a wonderful beer. The smoke is kept at a nice level. It is reminiscent of walking into a quality barbecue joint.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Dark color with tan head. Smell of smokey malt with notes of chocolate and caramel. Taste the chocolate and roasted malts with smoke at end during the finish. Taste like eating smoked meats or the char on a BBQ pork steak (it's an Stl thing). Really enjoyable beer that always taste better than it sounds.
