look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours very dark brown with a thin, lasting brown head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, roasted coffee, dark earthy tones with a hint of anise.

The taste is of sweet chocolate, smoke (meat-y?) and coffee. It has a lingering earthy finish.

It is medium-to-full bodied.

An excellent, complex but very drinkable, smoked stout.

A: Dark, even for a 7% stout, there is no light getting through this thing

S: Not a lot going on with this

T: Smokey and fruity but not very multidimensional

M: Good thickness to it, not much to complain about

O: Not bad for a smoked stout but not something I would want to have every day
