Got this from 2beerornot2beer in the Blind Beer Round 6 BIF.
500ml. bottle poured into my Bells tulip:

A: Pours a pitch black with about one full finger of mocha colored foam. The head settles nicely in a decent amount of time without leaving much residue on the glass. There is some nice lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet, smoky, and a little earthy. I’m also picking up some salt, chocolate, and meat notes. It smells great. This beer seems to be right in my wheelhouse.

T: The first hit is slightly sweet, with a big dose of smoke. The smoke notes follow through to the end and blend with a charcoal like taste. There is this bitter chalkiness to this beer. The finish is bitter with a touch of chocolate.

M: Full bodied beer. It starts off think and chalky, but finishes a bit smoother.

O: I like this beer. I’m not blown away, but its super interesting and I love all of the smoke and roast in this beer... Uggh, I just got a mouthful of little brown sludgy bits! Gross. I'm gonna have to bring it down a peg now.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a nearly opaque blackish color with medium brown head; thick rings down the glass. Smell: wood smoke, grain twang, earthy coffee with caramel and light fruitiness (plum ish). Taste: medium roast iced coffee, toffee, light earthiness, pine-ish note, grainy finish. Chocolate and dark fruit are reduced to being buried under the roast and grain. Worth a try, but my least favorite of the series so far.
