The beer comes in a dark brown black color.

The aroma has licorice, bitter chocolate, coffee, heavy caramel, roasted malt, and earthy hops.

The flavor follows of licorice, molasses, chocolate. The beer has a chewy mouthfeel with roasted coffee on the finish. There's a bacon and woody bitter quality throughout.

An extremely well done imperial stout.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Served in a tasting sized sample at the brewery.

A: Appearance was a little darker than I was expecting. Coffee colored brown. Not much head.
S: Not getting much of a smokey smell at all. I was expecting this to be heavier on smoke.
T: The taste follows the smell. The smoke taste is very slight, but still a nice beer. This would probably appeal to drinkers who have tried Smoked Beers in the past and thought they were too bacony or smokey.
M: Smooth and easy to drink. Pretty much what I was expecting in a smoked beer. Very easy to drink.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one. I'm a fan of smoked beers, and typically I think the smokier the beer, the better, but this one stands tall with a very subtle smokiness.

A pint glass on tap at Whole Foods in Vienna

Very dark brown with a tan head, good lacing

The taste is more woody than smokey, and given the high alcohol, well balanced. More similar to an imperial porter than smoked.

Mouthfeel is a bit light.

Very good overall but not true to the style.

Serving type: on-tap
