Color is basically dark brown, as expected. Smell is muted, as I was expecting something bigger from the smell. It is smoky, dark malts, all that. Just very muted. Taste actually a bit watery. You do get the smkoed flavor, and it actually builds after the first taste. A very slight sweetness too. Maybe even a burned chocolate taste at the end. Feel is thin. More thin than I figured for a porter.

Overall, it's good but not great. It is easy to drink, but to me, that's because it seems watered down a bit. The smoked essence also seems too minimal for the style.

Served In: Pint Glass

A - Well, I guess I should've poured more carefully. Agressive pour produces a towering head that is 3/4 of the glass. It's soapy looking from the sides, but still sturdy. Toasted marshmellow color. Body is deep dark brown.

S - Deep smokiness that brings forth aromas of smoked meats as well as some campfire. Roasty dark malts with chocolate and coffee.

T - Starts off with nice roasty qualities. Light coffee. Smoke comes in with smoked summer sausage and very light campfire flavors. Almost woody. Rye toast. Chocolate comes on towards the end, slightly bittersweet. Smokiness lingers on the tongue.

M - Medium bodied and very smooth.

Overall - This is my kind of smoked porter. Not over the top with the smokiness and no real smoked fish flavor to it. Nice and easy drinking.
