Captain Lawrence Brewing Company – Smoked Porter – 4 out of 7 Smokestacks

Captain Lawrence Smoked Porter

Captain Lawrence Brewing Company – Smoked Porter. The campfire smell stands up right off the bat. It looks a little lighter than Coca-Cola. Pours well, virtually no head, but was just fine with carbonation on the tongue. Presents a respectable smokepower taste, but not the strongest around. The smell really carries the beer. The taste is missing something, however. On the back of the throat I get a bit of a tart hoppiness flavor. And NO SILT:) Feel free to just dump it right down into your glass. Things I look for on labels (when scanning entire walls of beers): Images of barrels, logs, campfires, and some form of the word smoke. This bottle has all of those. Honest beer. Overall Happiness: 4 out of 7 Smokestacks
