12oz bottle poured into stout snifter. Opaque black with just a hint of brown at the stem of the glass. A one-finger brown head forms and slowly falls to a ring. No lacing. The aroma features smoked malt, roasted coffee, bakers chocolate, and molasses. Overall, the nose is mild and the smoke, specifically, is subtle. Fore’s taste follows the nose with a slight roasted malt, molasses, and chocolate sweetness followed by coffee and char bitterness. The smoke comes faintly on the finish. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a long bitter finish with some smoke.

A solid, somewhat boozy stout. The smoke flavor is very subtle, with just a hint of smoke coming through for me. The smoke is clearer in the smell than the taste. I think that's a good thing. A little sweetness, and a nice earthy flavor. A little raisin and licorice flavor is in this brew. An interesting and unique stout. I enjoy it enough that I buy two or three 4-packs every time it comes in season.
