Pours a minimal head. Nice, soft aroma of smoke. Black. Starts acidic with roasted malt, moves into a smokey malt as the carbonation clears the palate. As the toasted malt overshadows the smoke, it lingers into the finish.

I like this quite a bit. A nice stout with a medium amount of smoke.

Pours an impenetrable black body with a small brown head with decent retention. Aromas are predominantly of a charry smoke and dark chocolate garnache, reminiscent of a burnt smore. The aromas come through in a big and literal way on the front and mid-palates, with a sweet and smoky finish that lingers long pleasantly. Full bodied with warm alcoholic tingle. Assertive without being so heavy handed on the smokiness that you want to quit halfway through.
