A Stout dark as night with a slightly smokie twang on the center of the tounge. Complimentary bitterness to the coffee notes. (126 characters)

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. (698 characters)

As black a beer as I've seen, with brown foam in the pint shaker. It tastes like a malty Porter with a sweet, fruity taste that turns out to be smoke. Quite sharply carbonated with a malty body.

Deeply aromatic but the smoke is just part of it. Wintergreen in the nose. Slightly sweet at first, then close to sourish with the charred grain. Very bitter and burnt for the aftertaste.

After a promising start, and the smoke not being overdone, the finish gets a little too close to the ash tray. On tap at Toronado on 30th Street. (530 characters)
