4.09/5 rDev -1.4%
Bottled May 2012
It's dark brown on black with a hourglass shaped tan silkscreen. Smells of smoke, prunes, cocoa, hersheys syrup, a little dates as well as vanilla. Flavor is smoke, leather, sweet dark malts, some dried dates and a touch of prune juice. Full bodied with a silky feel and a dry finish. Good beer, really good beer.

The beer I was seeking out most when in middle Tennessee last weekend.Poures a deep dark chocolate brown with a tinge of ruby when held to the light,a frothy beinge head that left a few broken rings of lace as it slowly.Alot of nice stuff going on in the aromas,smoke and brine are the first things I notice followed by bitter chocolate and earthy hops,a little alcohol sweetness as it warms.Complex flavors with a decent amount of smoke but not in your face,there is some chocolate sweetness but there is a big earthy component keeping the sweetness from becoming over bearing,there is some molasses and sweet alcohol in the finish detected as well.This is as good and maybe better than what I was hoping for,well done Yazoo.

Had out of a 750ml. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Chocolate brown in color. Has a two finger creamy brown head upon pouring. Lots of lacing.
S: Roasted malts that leads to some chocolate, caramel, and finishes with some a smoke smell.
T: Smoke flavor, Roasty chocolate, hint of some vanilla.
M: Medium to heavy but very drinkable. Some creaminess to it. Can't taste the alcohol.
A very good, drinkable smoked porter. One of Tennessee's best.

Was given a 750ml bottle by one of my good beer customers, so thanks to him for sharing something we don't get in our area.
Poured in a Sam Adams 'perfect pint' glass.
AP: 3/4" froathy cream coloured head that dissipated down to 1/4", rich dark brown to near black colour
AR: Chocolate was the first aroma to hit me followed by a subtle hint of smoked ham then molasses takes over with hints of brown bread. For a smoked beer I was expecting more of it in the aroma and if it had been more prominent I would have given a higher score for the smell.
T: As with the aroma, I found the smoke aspect lacking. However, the rest of the flavours I found very enjoyable. Again with chocolate and molasses with a bit of brownie batter and at the finish a slick oily soft hint of smoke, but not enough IMO to balance the sweeter flavours. The warmer this brew gets the smoke flavour starts to poke through a little more, but not quite enough for me.
M: Very creamy with low/moderate carbonation and a bit silky on the tongue.
OV: An enjoyable tasty beer, but when I compare this to what it's supposed to be (a smoke beer) I can't rate it as high as I'd like. If the smoke flavours were more pronounced in the taste this would be an exceptional beer, but I just didn't get enough of it.
