Black color with a beige thick head with good retention.
Aroma of toasted grains and citric hops.
Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate and a good deal of hops. Notes of caramel and pine. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long lasting residual roastness.
Very smooth body with a mild carbonation.
Very good stout, nice tweak on the hop addition.

On nitro-tap at Prime 16. Pours a pitch black color with over an inch of frothy, tan head. Some lacing. Aroma is a sweet chocolate and coffee mix with some smokey roasted malts. The taste has more of the sweet oatmeal than in the aroma. Light and sweet coffee as well as chocolate. A bit of smoke towards the finish. Silky, creamy mouthfeel thanks to the nitro. Damn drinkable. This beer really shines on the nitro tap. Overall, worth seeking out.

This brew was served from the tap at Rattle N’ Hum in New York, NY. It arrived in a Rogue pint glass, showing a jet black brew, with flecks of ruby throughout when held to the light. This beer looked syrupy. It held a one finger head of medium brown bubbles, leaving sticky, spidery lacing after retaining nicely. Carbonation appeared average, and no haze or sediment was noted. The aroma opened with mustiness, grainy sourness, grassy hops, and chocolatey char and smoke. Light vinegar came out with warmth, along with a steely vanilla vine and raw coffee bean. Our first impression was that the flavoring was pretty mild, but the smoky malt base was nice. As we sipped, bitter roasted grain, sour lactics, light molasses, and huge smoke started things off. The middle peaked with smokiness, and a bittering bite of roasty grain. We finished with grassy hops and sour grain, while the smoky, chalky, drying chocolate malts and molasses continued from before. The aftertaste breathed of drying grain, more earthy hops, and a charred/smoky meat or fish character. The body was medium to full, and the carbonation was lower. Bone dry astringency streaked along the mouth, followed by a light smoke and coating booze to cut the dryness. There was a significant warming feel, more and more with each sip. The abv was appropriate, and the beer drank easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the nice coloring, and thick smoke to the malts. Negatively, however, the nose was a little light, and the flavoring, other than that wild smoke, was too. We were hoping for a better balance, and more solid flavors to mix with such a strong component as the smoke.
