Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a ruby-highlighted, dark brown coloring with a frothy, light tan coating of head that is clingy and low profile. Aromas of roasted nuts, bitter coffee, woody notes, and hints of baker's chocolate. Flavors are roasted forward, with a chocolate and nutty blend, almost leaning into a mocha character, with a bitter build at the end. Thin and dry bodied, with a bittersweet and roasted aftertaste. The beer has a bitter chocolate and coffee linger in a dry, slow finish. Decent tasting beer, and it nails the feel for the style. Solid.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From the 22 fl. oz. bomber. Sampled on July 14, 2013.

The color is extra dark brown to practically black with an opaque clarity and a soft, silky head sitting on top for most of the session.

On the nose there is smoke and sweetness which tend to offset each other brilliantly. No coffee but a little chocolate or vanilla.

The medium body has a loose sort of texture too. Not astringent or acidic but kind of juicy for lack of a better description.

Sweet caramel and dark malts are forward in the taste with the smokiness playing up the rear more so. It reminds me a bit of an Irish Dry Stout although I think it is meant to emulate Samuel Smith Taddy Porter. Drinkable and something I would drink again.

Pours a mostly clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a decent sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of caramel and chocolate with a hint of earthy hops and a nice compliment of sweet woody bacon. The flavor is sweet with caramel and milk chocolate with a hint of cherry and a solid shot of smokey woody phenols. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet and somewhat tart mouthfeel. Nice smokey dark beer, very well done.
