Pours black in color with a copper and tan creamy head that left spotty lacing. Smelled of smokey earthy coffee, some alcohol and hazelnut. Tastes of smokey campfire, roasted marshmallows and coffee with a nutty sweetness in the finish. Exhaling through the nose brings out a smokey maple campfire. Mouth feel is thin that compliments the flavor well. I’m getting the feeling that I should try this one by the side of a campfire next time.

This big stout poured a very deep brown black, the head was bordering on brown. A roasty nose dominates and a good roasted finish coates your palate. A smooth yet very hoppy stout (66 Ibu's) very well balanced and decadent. It packs a wallop at almost 8% so a near perfect to perfect drinkability score, at least for me is denied. Excellent stout from a fine brewery.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color. The beer has a three finger tall creamy dark mocha head that slowly condenses and reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium sized thicker patch and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted (almost burnt) malts and bittersweet chocolate. Just the tiniest hint of coffee.

T: Very similar to the smell, the taste of this beer has a strong dark roasted malt body that just borders on being roasted to the point of being burnt. There are moderate notes of bittersweet chocolate, light notes of coffee, and just a hint of citrus hop. There is a moderate to strong bitterness in this beer but it does not linger very long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: I find the flavors and aromas of this beer though the bitterness does make it a little tough to drink. Very enjoyable and one I would have again but this is not a sessionable beer - between the bitterness and the dryness.
