4.21/5  rDev +19.9%

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger tan head with good retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: A roasty, smokey, and fairly sweet dark malt forward aroma with big hints of smoke and chocolate. Upfront dark roasted barley malts with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, burnt toast, caramel, biscuit, grains, cream, and yeast. Huge aroma of smoke along with some hints of oak, wood, leather, and tobacco. Subtle dark fruit hints of raisin and fig. Also some light earthy hop hints. A very good aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a roasty, smokey, and somewhat sweet dark malt driven taste with big notes of smoke, toast, and chocolate. Big upfront taste of dark roasted barley malts with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toast, burnt caramel, biscuit, grains, cream, milk, and yeast. Big taste of smoked malt with some notes of wood, oak, tobacco, and leather. Light undertones of dark fruit with some notes of raisin, fig, and cherry. Subtle earthy hop notes. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a smoked beer. Good smoke and oak presence with a nice creamy dark malt taste.

Appearance - Dark brown with redish hues in the light. Nice tan head with some decent lacing.

Smell - smokey roasted malts is all I got

Taste - Lots of smokiness, burnt wood, nice bitter finish

Mouthfeel - decently carbonated, but leaves that strong smoke taste in your mouth

Overall - I was let down again by the LOF. I wasn't too sure about this beer and sure enough it was lackluster.

(Served in a short bowtie glass)

A-4.5 This beer pours a jet black opaque body with a cocoa colored head that breaks into thick lumps after a bit but continues to give good lacing with each sip. Too dense to see any bubbles.

S- 4 The rich mellow midnight wheat aroma has some more dark roasted malt notes that linger in the finish.

T- 4 smooth mellow midnight wheat flavor has a slight smoke hint to it with a gentle black roasted note in the finish with no bitterness. There is a hint of dark cola and smoke in the finish with a gentle green tartness.

M- 4 this beer has a medium mouthfeel with a slight slippery texture and no alcohol heat.

O- 4.5 This beer has a nice mellow dark roast character but more mellow and lighter than a typical stout and some nice tartness and smoke note that offer nice support from the background. Good depth but light and sessionable.
