Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, espresso, chocolate, roast and little bit smoke. Aroma is more chocolate, very light smoked, coffee, low body. Good stuff, not special.

Really like how the smoke is done in this - doesn't overpower but compliments very well

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance : Dark to opaque mahogany, little to no head.
Nose: Smoke, burnt toast, dark bread
Mouthfeel: Right on for a stout, medium full with some sharpness from the smoke.
Taste: Good, straightforward, nothing unusual or gimmicky, but also unremarable. Nicely burnt toast made from dark dark bread.
Overall: A good affordable go-to when you just gotta have smoked stout.

Pours dark black with a less than one finger mocha head. The aroma has dark chocolate, smoked malt, dark roasted malt, and coffee.

Has a smoky flavor with bot some sweetness and bitterness. There smoked malt, chocolate, dark roasted malt, and coffee. There is also some earthiness.

Medium to full bodied with modest carbonation. There is a light smoked malt aftertaste, Very easy to drink. Worth buying again for sure.
