Beer Review - Uncle Leo's Brewing Smoked Porter

The Smoked Porter is a seasonal offering from Uncle Leo's in Lyons Brook, NS. They told me that when they were brewing it it made the brewery smell like a campfire. It is extremely dark brown in color if not black with a nice brown foamy head. The aroma is definitely smoky and masks most everything else you may get from this porter. It has a nice smoky flavor start to finish with a medium body, good carbonation and a slightly dry finish. It is a great sipping beer especially with the days getting cooler with its 6.8% ABV. The smoky flavor is the dominant taste but it is not definitely a bad thing. I like it and definitely give this one a thumbs up. Until next time enjoy responsibly.
