Had on-tap at Bell's Eccentric Cafe.

Appearance: Pitch black with barely any head in the sample glass. Patchy lacing. Y'know, your typical stout. Shit, I need to get more inventive with my reviews. Slacker...

Smell: Picture any quality stout you've ever had, and add a smoke note -- that's this beer. The chocolate is a bit in the background to the heavy roasted malt/coffee sort of aromas, and the smoke. This is my first "smokey" beer, and I think this smells great.

Taste: Wow. It just tastes... excellent. A lot like the smell, but what I'm most impressed with (and I guess it's probably typical...) is that while it has the smoke aroma and flavor, it doesn't taste ashy at all. There's just a solid medium feel with this beer that gets it to coat your mouth and throat just enough. Massive coffee and roast with a moderate amount of smoke and bitterness... this is some good stuff. Bold flavor, but brewed just right to keep it from being overwhelming.
