4/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Served on tap at House of 1000 Beers on 9-29-13
A - Poured out a rich creamy black color, two fingers of tan colored head, thick lacing.
S - Aroma has a lot of dark roasted chocolates, some smoky traits, it seems like there might be some hops in here, and definitely a little boozy.
T - Big bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, has a really nice hop character throughout the mouth, and there's a really neat flavor of smoked hickory chips that compliment it well.
M - Least favorite part of the beer, very dry, not a whole lot of those good complex flavors in the aftertaste, but for 12% there's not a lot of burn.
O - Great stout with how complex it is, the hops and smokiness really bring this to a new level. Would definitely have again.

Served in a CCB snifter. Smell is typical of a stout with malty goodness. Pours an inky black with no head. I don't pick up any coffee notes and a bit thin for my liking. A bad bottle perhaps? Overall, pretty good but better stouts can be had. If free forming I'd give it a 3.75. Overall quite nice...
