4.21/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle; '9.22.17' on bottle neck (6 months old)

Look: Pours pitch black and sits pitch black in the glass, with a nice chocolate-colored head (tiny bubbles) that dissipates somewhat quickly; reasonably nice legs.

Smell: Mild, but what I expect in a quality stout: roasted malts and chocolaty.

Taste: generous amounts of malts & chocolate, with a hint of smoke on the finish.

Mouthfeel: creamy and on the heavy side; just what I want in a stout.

With only 7% ABV, this beer is quite impressive. I am looking forward to having the next one.

Has a really nice smoke finish that's not overwhelming. And a smokey mouthfeel. Well balanced stout.

Like it. It don't love it. Like someone else said: burnt toast is the overwhelming taste for me. Some chocolate, lots of malt and some bettrness. Would be great with a steak or a dark chocolate cake.

After more tasting, getting even more smoke than at first. It's growing in me although I'm not a huge smoked beer fan.

Industry public house in Robinson. Now, I'm a smoked flavor fan, so take this review with that in mind! I really enjoyed this! The aftertaste was a little too off bitter for me, but, still a good offering!

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was an inch of foamy, tan-colored head that lasted an average amount of time. Not much lacing.

S: A nice aroma of chocolate, malt, coffee, caramel, and the advertised smoke.

T: Tasted of the aforementioned smoke - though it's not as powerful as I expected - a good amount of roasted malt, some caramel, a fair bit of coffee, chocolate, and molasses. There's just enough smoke to make this an interesting flavor, with the coffee and molasses working well together.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very solidly made stout. It's incredibly balanced and easy to drink.
