Simply the blackest beer I have ever seen! If you liquified charcoal briquettes, it might not be this black. Minimal rust brown head. Smells of smoke amd roasted malts. A very good balance between the smoke and the sweetish malt base. Some lite coffee and dark chocolate undertones. Thick mouthfeel and a surprisingly light aftertaste. A great Smoked Ale and a very good Stout.

Deep dark brown in color. Nice blend of roast and smoke on the nose. The smoke does not get out of control yet it outpaces the roasted malts in the flavor profile. There is a healthy body with a little creaminess.

Far too smoky for my palette. It was a good take on the style but just a bit too smoky in taste and nose. Not one I would try again.
