11.2 ounce bottle, best before 2015. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that stays around for a bit. There's also a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like smoked malt, chocolate, band-aids, peat, burnt/charred malt, and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some dark fruit and an earthy flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and has a good amount of carbonation. I think this is a very good brew. Although it's pricey at $8.99 a bottle, I'd buy this one again. Definitely worth a try if you like smoked stouts.

Weirdly, a huge (more than three fingers) tan head forms up, popping away slowly, leaving a small creamy cappuccino cap and a few traces on the side of the glass. Black in colour.
Smells awesome: bacon, chocolate and clear oranges, quite a weird combo, but works great. Smoke, dark malts, faint coffee bean, green hops.
Quite a complex taste, maybe a bit too much really. Roasted malts, almost burnt, citrus juice and a big phenolic feel in the front. There's also some dark fruit, dark cooking chocolate, cream, cinnamon and faint vanilla, fainter licorice, followed by more and more roasted notes, getting to ash, charcoal, burnt wood, touch of peat and with a small smokey hint right at the finish. American hops stand tall in this one, almost close to a Black IPA, closing the beer with a nice leafy bitterness, alongside the obvious burnt dark bread crust and quite a bit of warm alcohol.
Medium body, creamy, smooth (if not for a bit of surplus fizz).
Really enjoyed this one, forgiving with the smokiness, but generous with the hops and the nice roasty chocolate. Might seem a bit rough, but nothing too hard to stomach.
