2014 bottle. Nice creamy tan head. Pleasant roasty, smoky aroma, with malt, cocoa, and coffee. On the palate it's creamy and rich, roasty, well balanced, not at all overly sweet. Some discernible spicy/earthy hops work well with the other flavors. Dry finish, pleasantly bitter, with good length. Quite drinkable. Tasty batch; I enjoyed this.

Smoke is something I'm not a fan of in beer. And the bottle was a gusher when opened.

Very interesting flavor profile to get those rauchbier smoked malts mixed in with darker grains that builds a stout profile.

I can't wait to revisit this with some age on it and to get my hands on some barrel aged variants.

If you don't like smoked beers this isn't as overpowering as true rauchbiers and is very easy to drink, if you hate smoke flavored anything stay away.

I was SHOCKED how awful this is. A thin brown ale with nothing to offer. Its translucent!! so terrible, i will never get those carbs back!!

As my friend put it, they should be ashamed to wax this bottle
