Pours a nice dark color creamy head with a nice lace though head is gone quickly. Smell is slightly sweet little boozy maybe a hint of cinnamon... lets taste it... boozy boozy creamy mouthfeel but astringent slight sweetness in second sip definitely a beer to warm and savor good but not great not really getting the graham cracker in the taste....
update: Had this again recently and it seems they have improved upon the recipe... More graham crack and much nicer on the palate. This brewery is quickly becoming one of my favs check them out!!!

Very dark brown but clear. Small but durable light tan head.
Rich roasted grain flavor. Graham cracker is hard to detect, at best. A bit too much char in the aftertaste.
Aroma: sweet with a hint of sorghum.
Feel: Smooth with soft, low carbonation.
O: this is a big beer featuring dark roasted malts. A touch over-roasted for my taste, however.

16oz pours at Loco Willy's (Marietta, GA). Served in a pint glass.
Appears deep brown with chestnut edges and about a quarter finger pale tan head. Sheet of lacing nearly coat the glass.
Smells of hot cocoa, graham and vanilla with a wisp of alcohol.
Oh, that's nice! Spiced graham cracker, cocoa, cinnamon, toffee and vanilla. It's like a chocolate graham cracker malt. Enough going on to keep the near 10% abv from seeming like much at all. Quite tasty.
Moderaty heavy feel with just enough carbonation to make it dance on the tongue for a bit before settling into a long sweet grahamy finish.
Burnt Hickory can't possibly get to bottling this fast enough for my liking! It really delivers on the graham cracker, similar but not quite as well as Southern Tier delivers on a flavor with Choklat. A well done original flavor profile and highly recommended.

On tap at the open house on 2/16.
Appearance: Pours a midnight black with a finger of a white head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Smells of dark fruits, slight chocolate, and some graham cracker.
Taste - Taste mirrors the nose.
Mouthfeel: Thick mouthfeel. Alcohol is masked well.
Overall: More dark fruits than I was expecting and probably my least favorite of the day but I still liked it.
