On draft at Select Beer in Redondo Beach

Pitch black, very thin head

Super smoky on nose and taste, almost to the point of being bitter. Charcoal. Not a lot of depth.

Interesting beer but not something I'll have again

A Stout dark as night with a slightly smokie twang on the center of the tounge. Complimentary bitterness to the coffee notes.

On-tap, snifter, at HG.

A: Served a near black with a short lived light brown head.
S: Smoke is soft and roasted smelling with a touch of campfire. No harshness or char. Hints of caramel and raisin poke through as well.
T: Mild chocolate, campfire smoke, savory bbq meat smoke, and hints of roasted coconuts. Finish is full of dark chocolate, aftertaste is lingering bitter chocolate and tobacco smoke. Just a hint of lingering char. I get some hints of dark fruit as the beer warms.
M: Soft and fluffy carbonation froths up on my palate, ample, but airy and smooth. Mild bitterness, clean, and drinkable.
O: A pleasant smoked beer, very solid overall. Something I could actually repeatedly order.
