Had this at my local Taco Mac
It came in a dimpled mug, very black with a tan wispy thin head and showing some slight lacing.
The aroma of sweet chocolate hit the nose and the taste followed suit. Chocolate was first with hints of vanilla on the finish.
It covers your tongue with a silky warm feeling and slides creamy and smooth down the throat. This would great beer by the fire on a chilly evening with 8.5 ABV it warms you up quite fast.
Serving type: on-tap

A – black…not much of a head
s- not much to report here…roasted malt, I guess
t- Pretty darn good. Coffee, chocolate notes…roasted malt. Alcohol is well hidden.
m – full bodied and creamy, but with a dry finish. The most interesting aspect of the beer, for sure.
0- Very drinkable stout. I would have this one again, for sure.

Nice thick tan colored head filled with dense foamy froth. No much lacing. Thin-ish brew that black.
Awkwardly smokey. Kinda weird. Milky, chocolaty, smoke, brunt, crispy...
Hum, bitter, dry, weird, thin, watery. Definitely a Foreign stout and not bad on those premises. Could use more complexity and blending. The smoke is awkward and over taking. Not my favorite. I sure hope you like smoked brew, I hope they're not all like this one. The flavors come together like rotten fish...
No. 1 Would be much better without the rauch addition. I'm not a fan of smoked brews... weird. Can't recommend even at $2/12oz. Drain pour.
