Epic Brewing- Smoked Porter – Exponential Series – 3.9 out of 7

image

It smells like a smoked porter. I smelled the smoke right off the bat, not too heavy, just a hint. As you know, I’m looking for the smoke factor to fall in the overwhelming category, so this falls short on that end. It reminds me of Stone Smoked Porter, Smoked Porter regular, not Vanilla Bean or Chipotle or Orange, or whatever else the hell they’re putting in their beer this week, (friendly ribbing here). Its a smooth pour with a light tan head on top which reminds me that I have to get a haircut, today, and not in a “I gotta get a haircut and will wait 3 weeks” kind of way. Oh no, I need one now. I sure am thirsty tonight. I’m getting dizzy. I’m looking at buying a house. I’m sleepy. Final overall happiness score = 3.9 Smokestacks out of 7.
