An awesome beer. Smoked stout done incredibly well. Smoke blends perfectly with chocolately, coffee flavors expected in a stout. Granted, I like smoked beers...this was incredible.

I'm a sucker for lactose. Silky, not cloyingly sweet, incredibly rich.

Random bottle pulled out by Chico1985 last night. Full notes to iPad at time of consumption.

A- Deep brown around the sides with black mostly filling the glass. Dark leathery brown head to a thin layer with frothy appearance falling to a tiny ring. Sticky legs all over but only some spotty lace.

S- Smoky grains and chocolate pretty much compose the entire aroma. Bacon and burnt logs notes. Smoke seems a bit like peat as smoked Scotch comes to mind at times with the dark chocolate.

T- Deep dark bitter chocolate bars and cocoa powder leads the way to smoky meaty burning wood. Completing the flavor profile are notes of caramel, deep semisweet raisins, toasted cereal grains, crystal malt and some bread.

MF- Semi thick body with a slick and slightly creamy overall consistency. Carbonation is toward the lower side but it suits the rich cocoa and smoke. Bitter roasty finish.

Meaty and cocoa forward stout that is rather rich. Dark rich chocolate is the main player while the smoke compliments that. Another fine treat shared by Chico1985.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body and a big off-white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Medium smokiness. Some nuttiness and dark malts.

Taste - Lots of smoke malts. Works very well. Some chocolate. Nutty and smokey in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter smokiness in the back end. Well carbonated.

Overall - Nice smokiness. The body balances it well, though.
