Bottle from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Solid opaque blackness with a huge creamy and bubbly dark mocha head that persists forever. Huge cedar chest aromas are quite spicy. Some chocolate, caramel, light fruit. and roast deep underneath. The flavor is rich roasty chocolate caramel and molasses up front that is quickly shoved aside buy an ever intensifying spicy cedar flavor. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation, and a creamy sticky slick mouthfeel. Wow that cedar is really intense! I managed to finish my glass but it took a while. I don't think I enjoy the flavor or aroma of cedar.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. This has at most a couple months of age on it, as it was released recently.

Appearance: Pours a deep, deep brown (near-black) and leaves a couple fingers of deep tan/mild brown head. Good looking beer.

Smell: Big aroma: Roasted malts, smoked malts, coffee, smoked meats, wood, dark chocolate. Very enticing aroma. Not unlike cooking meat over a wood stove.

Taste: Big smoked malts, candied bacon, dark chocolate, coffee, straight smoke (very interesting), cedar. Nice big flavor, but also fairly easy drinking. Lovely woody finish.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium to thick, creamy body.

Overall: A really different and delicious stout. I love the smokiness to it, its subtle and really well balanced. This would definitely be a go-to if it were easily available. An impressive brew for sure.
