I was a little surprised by the lukewarm reviews on this one. It is a little pricey for a 12oz bottle, but it is a very pleasing take on a Russian Imperial Stout.

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle, the stout was a murky blackish-brown with a slight layer of mocha foam. The smoke is very apparent in the aroma as it radiates the essence of smoked bacon. In the initial taste, one gets sweet bacon, smoke, glazed ham, and sweet black malt. If you are bored with the average stout, this stout sure packs a great deal of excitement. Toward the finish, one detects elements of vanilla toward the back of the tongue. If the sweetness on this stout went a little higher, this would be near perfect. In the aftertaste, a woody vanilla finish yields to a warming sensation. A nice smooth stout that leaves some of the sting of tobacco in your mouth, Ashtray Heart would make a great cold weather beer.

A licorice black colored brew with a fair dark tan head and modest bits of lacing. The aroma is pretty big , with chewy licorice smoked malt and veggie evergreen hop. There is an "ashy" idea here but it comes off very nice. The flavor brings out a tart prune malt shrouded in cigar ash and leathery tobacco. There's a little bit of whole grain flavor deep down but it's hard to overcome the primary smoky theme. This is medium plus bodied porter with a fairly chewy but smooth feel with quiet carbonation. As porters go this is a big flavored brew and I can see it being a controversial one. Either really like it or really dislike it. It's easily a good one for me.

I was very excited to try this offering as I love smoked beers especially Evil Twins The Cowboy. This stout pours very near black color with a small tan head and a small but nice lacing. The aroma is very appealing with lots of coffee and chocolate offset with a subtle smokiness and sweet vanilla. The flavor is unfortunately not as inviting. It is very one note with an avalanche of smoke and coffee. No depth at all. This is a good beer to try if you haven't had anything like it before but otherwise seek out something like Founders Smoked Porter for a much better take on this style.
