12oz bottled on 11/04/09.

Pours dark brown, black in the glass, with a small tan head. First bottle had very little head and lacing, second bottle is retaining more head and leaving lots of sticky lacing on the glass (albeit a different glass this time).

Good roasted aroma along with some coffee, baker's chocolate, and licorice.

Excellent flavor, lots of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits. Lasting finish.

Despite the body being on the thin side, the mouthfeel is surprisingly full and smooth although a bit more carbonation than I usually like.

Overall a very impressive brew.

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.
