look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cola brown color with 1/2 inch light brown head. The aromas were of faint smokiness without the classic BBQ smell you find in smoked beers. The taste is the same, a pleasant earthy smokiness with hints of chocolate and roast coffee beans. Kind of like eating a coffee bean lightly covered in chocolate. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied.
Overall - I like the twist on its earthy and smoky notes. I'm guessing the hemp seed is was lends these characteristics.

It's a super light brown pour that caused concern for a quick second before I saw the body building up a chocolate brown fullness and a nice, fluffy 1/2 finger of head. The head stays like a ring of bubbly coffee all the way to the finish.

Oh, this nose is nice. Rich nutty aromas with some chocolate-coffee and biscotti.

Flavor is hemp forward, following with formidable notes of hazelnut, coffee, chocolate, vanilla...ending on a tremendous coffee breath note that is beyond ridiculous (in a good way).

Feel is the only part that could really improve. A bit thin on the feel, but hey - it's roasty as all get out, so it sort of balances out.

This Smokin' Hemp Porter is fabulous. I wish I woulda grabbed a six in Wisconsin. Very solid, glad I have another to enjoy.

Smokin Hemp Porter pours an almost blackish color with a small lacing head. There is a bold smokey aroma. The taste has a nice smokey note, with a sweetness and earthy aftertaste. Overall, its a little watery, but nice complex body.

on tap at the tasting room of the brewery.
a-dark brown and clearer around the edges, almost like a cola. ring of tan foam. no lacing

s-pretty smokey. malty and sweet. caramel and light chocolate

t-again, smoky with a lot of malty sweetness. the caramel and chocolate are light. smoky aftertaste lingers for a bit. light hop kick rounds it out.

m-medium body with a gentle tingle. low/medium carbonation.

d-i dig it. i'm not a big fan of their regular stout, but this smoked porter is pretty solid. not huge either, so you could drink a few, or a growler, pretty easily. if you like smokey beer, it's certainly worth a try!
