Woo. Somebody burned some pork rinds and threw them in the stout. This is a big nasty stout with a crazy amount of some flavor. This is smoked as much as a full rauch beer and the stout is fully suppressed by the smoke.

It pours nicely to a black foamy loveliness. The aroma only barely gives away the smoked taste that's going to follow. The taste is so smokey everything else is lost. The aftertaste is a burnt bitterness.

O would put this in a line up of rauch beers, where it would fare well. As an imperial Stout, not so much.

A - Pours a dark black, chocolate, body with a small toffee off white head

S - Mild vanilla, molasses, sweet dark chocolate, and as weird as this sounds, a hickory scent reminiscent of BACON!

T - Very dark up front, nice roasted notes, mild fruit and ends on this hickory bacon flavor.

M - Very syrupy, but it's to be expected with this type of beer.

O - I'm going to pass on this one.

Bottled on 10/24/13. 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with just a little light getting through; khaki head that slowly fades and leaves nice lacing and retention. The aromas are loaded with cocoa malts. Lots of chocolate along with some smoke. The flavors are loaded with smoke and ash. They deliver on the hickory as well, in a subtle way. Tons of malts and grains. Lots of dark chocolate. Some hints of vanilla. There's a subtle bitterness. Earthy and woodsy. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is full-bodied. It's very creamy and smooth with moderate carbonation. This is a nice beer to sip on and relax with.

Not bad at all. It's not exactly anything unique or out of the ordinary, in my opinion, but it's well crafted and pretty enjoyable.

22oz bomber: This one pours an inky, opaque dark brown color. There was a very small brown head on it that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The nose is good. Touch of smoke, just a hint of alcohol. Chocolate, dark fruits, hint of spruce: there is a lot going on in there. The taste is good. A bit of a sweetness to it. Some espresso, chocolate, spruce, dark fruits and some bitterness/dryness in the finish. This is really good!

Poured a blackish body with one finger tan head and slight lacing around glass. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with some chocolate and a touch of coffee mixed in. Smooth, slightly sweet due to chocolate malts, easy to drink with decent balance, a little bit of caramel and vanilla as well. Not the most active stout but balanced with no overpowering malts and the booziness is kept to a minimum.
