This is a black, this'll brew with a tan head. The smell is moderately smokey, like a smoldering campfire, and a roasted malt scent underneath. Balanced...medium bitterness. Some smoke beers overdo it, and are too dry and acrid. This brew, however, is well made and rewarding.

Poured from a 12oz bottle I've had in my cellar for about a year (not intentionally, just kinda happened that way), into a tulip...

A - Pours a very dark cola brown, with a creamy light brown head that's about a finger thick. Some pretty thick lacing on the sides as the head falls.

S - Very nice smoke aroma that is very prominent. Smells like a good smoked porter should.

T/M - The taste is where it seems too fall off a little bit for me. Waviering on the thin/watery side, the mouthfeel leaves a little something to be desired. The flavor however is a little bit better. The base beer is noticable, with some dak fruits and char that are associated with a good porter. The smoke is more in the aftertaste, but not too much.

O - It's a pretty solid smoked porter. If I could get this regularly here in Las Vegas, I think I would probably purchase this one again.
