Overall really good beer. Heavy start of molasses, followed by some hops, caramel, and vanilla.
Finishes with coffee, toffee, and ash. This beer really moves along the palate. Would drink again, but only to share with friends. Too rich to drink more than one.

From the 100 Barrel Series, poured into a pint glass. The beer was a dark brown color with a tan head. The head was fairly large to begin with, but dissipated quickly.

Aroma of caramel malt and smoke. A little bit of chocolate and dark fruit.

The taste followed the nose. Smoky caramel, chocolate, and plum.

A smooth beer. I thought the smokiness worked well.
