Notes: Born on 1/21/14 (current date 6/20/14).

A: pours an oily black and looks thick as it glub glubs out of the bottle. There was a 1/2 finger brawn head that receded quickly to a thin layer.

S: Not getting a lot on the nose.

T: Smokey coffee flavor up front. With a smoke aftertaste.

M: A bit of tingle from the carbonation. Not think or chewy like I anticipated from the pour.

O: This is kind of one note. The smoke is smothering anything more complex. I know it is a smoked stout - so that should be the expectation - but I hoped for some other flavors somewhere in the palate. It is decent tasting but lacks a strong nose and depth int he taste.
