The aroma is rich and appetizing with mesquite-like smokiness and intense molasses and bread crust. The body is black and opaque with a creamy, dark tan head. The flavor is also very smoky at first with rich roasted malt and bread crust-like malt flavor. There is also some apple-like fruitiness and a bit of alcohol. The smokiness quickly fades as the flavor becomes predominantly fruity and malty. It is very full bodied, smooth, and creamy with just a little carbonation and bite that keeps the texture from becoming viscous.

Very rich and intense with a savory aroma and a delicious, complex flavor. The texture as well is well balanced and satisfying.

Really good smoked stout. Very decadent, like smoke in my mouth. Very boozy as well. There really isn't a bad brew by Evil Twin.

Bottle from Hop City. Pours dark black with tan head. Aroma of light smoke, chocolate, spices, and coffee. Flavor of chocolate, molasses, and smoke, with a strong booze aftertaste. Heavy bodied. It’s like drinking a boozy camp fire. Very good.

Only two reviews so far? Just stumbled upon this sole bottle tonight; glad I did.

11.2 oz bottle poured into snifter. Best by 2015.

A: Pours an opaque dark-brown with faint mahogany highlights. Pours very flat (little to no head), although a nice frothy cap emerges when roused.

S: Campfire, dairy, oak, espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. Enticing.

T: More of the same, with a very nice bitter chocolate center. Finishes with a bit of vanilla and sweet, subtle smoke.

M: Thick, viscous and chewy; one of the creamiest mouthfeels I've ever encountered. Mouth coated in smoky chocolate. Yes.

O: I was a bit pensive when I cracked this, having recently had a few slightly negative rauchbier experiences. Ashtray Heart is a pleasant surprise, though; creamy as can be and much more subtly smoked than any of the more well-known German rauchbiers. The smoke works very well with the strong stout notes, resulting in yet another win for Evil Twin.

Complex, creamy and incredibly well put-together.
