4.8/5 rDev +22.4%
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.

3.85/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Smoke, ham, toasted cereal grains, doughy, earthy, toffee, and chocolate.
Taste: Same as above. Some bitterness in the rear too. Nice mellow flavors.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: Nice smokey black lager. I'll revisit this one again in the future.
