look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from the bottle into a tulip pint glass.
A: Rich, deep, dark brown. Bears a strong resemblance to black coffee. A slightly lighter color, I'd call it a very dark amber, becomes visible at the very top and bottom of the glass or when viewed in the right light. An initial head of about one half-inch dissipates fairly quickly, leaving minimal lacing (if any at all) around the edge of the glass.
S: The nose is predominantly smoky, and very pleasant. Complimentary to the smoke, the nose has an almost, I might say, meatiness to it. Reminds me very much of smoked ham or bacon.
T: Taste is very similar to the nose, with a pleasantly bitter, almost chocolatey finish.
M: Like most dark beers, there's a heavy, sort of chewy mouthfeel here.
O: This is a great beer with a lot of character and very pleasant qualities. I really enjoy the smokiness. Despite being heavy, I feel that this beer can be enjoyed any time of the year. I highly recommend it.

An Excellent beer. I find myself going back to it time and time again at locations such as the Yard House, where there are 100 + beers on tap.
A - Deep dark beer with almost a smoky haze
S - Smell of faint smoke - not overpowering - which is a big win for this beer
T - Taste of light smoke, and creaminess.
M - A bit waxy in the mouth, but not overwhelming
O - Great beer. Highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

Dark brown edges to light brown edges. Just right on the carbonation
S: Chocolate malt with a dry smoke smell.
T: Really drinkable, dark cherry with a clean but not heavy body at all. not really bitter at all
O: Paired great with the Malaysian ribs.
Left me wanting more, Great finish.
