Bottle. 93 IBU, 9% ABV. Twist-off cap.
Black body, slight reddish hints, brownish tan head. Head is large at first but falls before drinking.
Can smell the smokiness as soon as I popped open the bottle. Aroma is predominantly smoke, maybe a little heat, some sweetness, maybe light alcohol.
Flavor is very smokey, but the smoke is much more complex than I've had in other smoked beers. Lingering bitterness. Could maybe use a little bit more roastiness or malt presence, but its understandable with the smoke and high bitterness.
Mouthfeel is somewhat dry, carbonation is fine. Don't feel the alcohol except slightly on exhaling.
Overall a very good smoked beer. The bitterness and smokiness overwhelm some of the other character of the beer, which if it came through more would earn Sue a few more points.

Dark brown to black in color and impenetrable to light. Just a thin beige head covering about half of the top of the beer.aroma of chocolate and dark malt is apparent. The flavor is boldly packed with slightly bitter dark malt,chocolate,and leather. The mouth is creamy and smooth.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled on 3-14-2014. On 6-12-14 poured a dark, opaque brown with a 4 inch khaki head that gradually diminishes leaving prominent, thick lacing.
The aroma was smokey malt, similar to smoked beef or beef jerky.
Taste was smokey malt with plum and chocolate followed by moderate clean hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel was creamy, moderate to heavy body, moderate carbonation and mild ethanol warming.
This beer strikes a perfect balance between a malt-forward porter, prominent but not overwhelming smokiness and a clean hop finish. I would serve this at 55F with grilled or smoked beef or duck or a rich chocolate desert. Would also be great on a cool night by the fire.
