L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and an opaque consistency. There was a big, creamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Not much head, though.

S: A nice aroma of malt, smoke, oak, apple, and some chocolate.

T: Tasted of whole bunch of smoke (much more evident when you're first drinking it), a tinge of apple, a good amount of malt, light chocolate, a bit of booze, and oak. A very solid flavor that's a little bracing at first, but gets better as it goes along. Complex and interesting.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is the kind of beer that won't please everyone, but it's definitely worth a try. Drinkable.

Creamy chocolate with slight hints of oak chips. Faint red apple finish. Not bad

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Nice khaki head with a thick collar and nice surface wisps.

Smell - Smoky, but not too intense. Sweet smelling. Chocolate. Lots of vanilla. Some oak. I get some brandy, but I don't think I'd peg it as apple.

Taste - Chocolate. Smoke. Sweet fudgy chocolate comes back after the smoke. Oak. Sweet brandy flavor. Woody finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Pretty sweet and kinda boozy. A little sluggish.

Overall - Nice all around. I appreciate that the smoke isn't overwrought.
