Poured a black body with some tan head and minor lace that dies quick. Aroma is mostly smoked and roasted malts, not quite meaty type smokiness but strong and there are some subtle notes of coffee, dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Beer is heavy but smooth and retains its dry, smoky edge throughout. Balance and additional flavors are brought in from some coffee, chocolate and boozy taste sensations. This sweetness seems to hit on backend as the beer finishes dry and sweet at same time.

Draft only offering in this market. On tap at the Moan and Dove. Served in a mug.

A: Very dimly lit in here, but it appears to be a solid opaque black. Creamy brown head retains well at one inch.

S: Bitter dark chocolate, lots of roasted barley, chocolate truffles, campfire is a bit more subtle than expected, slightly metallic, plum ester.

T: Milk chocolate and chocolate truffles. Roasted barley. Hints of espresso and woody, nutty malts. Campfire and smoke strike a perfect balance and complement the roasted malts harmoniously. Slightly metallic and steely. Plum and currant esters. Decadent chocolates, woody smoke, and roasted barley on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Decadent and rich. Very velvety and creamy. Ridiculously smooth. No too weighty, but it certainly has substance. Low carbonation lets the rich malt textures settle in.

O: Oh God was this good. So decadent in both flavor and feel. Like high end chocolates that melt in your mouth. The smoked malts strike an absolute perfect balance. They complement without overstepping their bounds. An absolute pleasure to drink.
