Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours black with a somewhat quickly dissipating finger length light tan head. The beer is opaque, but some tiny bubbles are visible on the edge of the glass. There is some lacing left on the side of the glass during consumption. The smoked malt aroma brings some recollection of Schlenkerla, which is to be expected due to the use of beechwood smoked malt. I also get some chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and some sweetness. There are some bourbon notes and the smokiness from the malt up front. I get some of that coffee, chocolate, and some of that malt sweetness. The alcohol is forward, but it's tough not to expect that at 12.5% ABV. There's also a touch of meatiness there from the beechwood smoked malt. The body is full and the beer coats the mouth well with each sip. The carbonation is on the lower end. This is an excellent beer.
