On tap at The Birch in Norfolk, Va. Beautifully presented in a goblet; deep black with a crema-style head.
Nose of smoke and earth. Rich, dark chocolate notes with cigar smoke lingering in the background. Hints of cafe au lait and espresso are present. A touch of fresh earth and leather underlie the coffee/espresso notes. Finish is smooth, creamy, and silky. Alcohol is present but does not dominate.
Very tightly constructed and a pleasure to consume. This is prime material for a dessert beer and/or to accompany a good cigar.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
