4.01/5  rDev -0.7%

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color - traces of red are visible near the edge of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a thin dark brown head that quickly died down, leaving only a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoke and dark malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of licorice. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little thick on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is incredibly drinkable considering its strength because any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.

A: Pours a clear yet opaque jet black in color with some moderate amounts of garnet red + dark amber highlights and minimal amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has an extremely thin mocha head that quickly reduces to a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong smokey aromas to this beer, similar to a campfire. Lighter aromas of roasted malts and just a hint of brown sugar.

T: Upfront there a light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some honey and brown sugar sweetness. Then there are moderate flavors of smokiness with a hint of peat. Light notes of milk chocolate as well.

M: Just shy of full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is really thick, it even seems thick when it is being poured. The alcohol is extremely well hidden in this beer, I would never have guessed that it is 10.8% ABV - it is much easier to drink than that. Enjoyable with the smokey flavors and aromas but not over the top or dominating.

12oz bottle poured into a Sprecher snifter glass

Appearance- Jet black with a half finger of khaki head that quickly dissipates. No lacing is left behind.

Smell- Mostly chocolate, but pretty subdued scent on the beer.

Taste- In the front I get this kind of metallic flavor then a very nice smokey and chocolate finish.

Mouthfeel- Definitly a bit watery for a stout. It drinks quite a bit like a porter. There is a nice warming sensation.

Overall- Nice mellow smoke and chocolate makes for a great tasting stout. The abv is hidden in the flavor completely, but there is a very nice warming finish. Solid beer other then the metallic flavor in the front of the tounge.
