Draught @ the Portland Brew Pub poured into Imperial Pint glass.

Pours straight black with a finger of beige colored head that eventually forms a light ring around the glass. Aromas is chocolate malts, some smoke and a touch of hops. Flavor is sweet upfront with piney hops and sweet malt and ends with a lingering bitterness with some smoke. The body is light-medium with a nice carbonation. Pretty decent beer but its a bit sweet which makes 16oz. a little too much.

Had this at the Deschutes Brew Pub in Portland, OR

From their bar notes about this ale: A black ale made to commemorate the coming of long nights and short days.This dark ale, with light chocolate undertones, was brewed with roasted black barleys and dark crystal malts to create a dark color while keeping the lightness of an ale. Nugget and Willamette hops were used, adding a balanced and full flavor. Enjoy this beer while waiting for the dark and damp winter to pass.

To me, this was an enjoyable beer with a definite, smokey flavor (but not as smokey as their Black Butte). The mouthfeel was pretty chewy, which I enjoyed.
