S - Snokey, soy sauce, teriyaki.
T - Smooth chocolate, then a huge smokey finish.
D - Good carbonation with a medium body.
O - Smoke isn't my thing, but this one is lake fakey then most.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.
Very deep walnut brown and almost black pitched body, very opaque and dark. Head makes about a light chocolate brown finger tall head. Settles to a good thick tan collar, and a very full puck if thin, but not oily or weak.
Classic smoked malts. Hints of beechwood, light smoke bbq and jerky like meats. A real nice hint of sweet coffee like cream roast, maybe even a bit of vanilla poking out on this too. Good balance as well.
A good interesting mix. Controlled tasting smoke in the palate, with some mixing classic large roasted malt. Slightly hot, and also a bit wet, but the flavors still carry. Some light coffee angles mix with the smoke and rich malt sweetness.
Overall a very neat stout in the realm, and the smoke character is also very well balanced and integrated in the beer. It just requires a little more depth.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass - I think I poured too vigorously on this one, the head took up nearly half the glass... it's delightfully dark, and the head is tinged a dark brown; if swirled, there remains a caramelly residue on the glass. The head was frothy and dissipated relatively quickly.
For the smell, I'm getting smokiness, certainly, but also a fruitiness that is primarily dates. Perhaps hints of chocolate. The taste also has the pungent fruitiness, but tempered by flavors of smoke and a dry coffee taste that lingers in the mouth. The body is relatively light on the tongue.
Overall, a very fine stout that blends a variety of flavors well - though I do keep coming back to the dates.
