Jet black with a nice tan crown. Tightly knit bubbles. Looks decadent.

Dark roast, mocha, campfire smoke, hint of berry, some char, and burly grain. Lightly sweet.

Big smoky stout flavors. Smoked malt, char-roast, sweet mocha, beechwood, teriyaki sauce, meatiness, black coffee, and earthy hop finish. Gets meatier and meatier as it warms. Great stuff in this glass.

Nice and soft. Carbonation genuflects to a thicker stiller body. Lightly warming, too.

Love it. Smoke done right.

Same ratng at the brewpub as a cask. I changed to the cask as it is a great cask, with chocolate and balanced smoke, still significant carbonated.
Good smoked enjoyed on-tap at Pizza Plant, Transit. Black body with soapy brown head, served too cold. More drinkable though not more complex as it warmed, yielding more coffee. Pleasant BBQ smoke in nose. Above average mouthfeel, a sipper but drininkable. Drying finish.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, a light smoke and roasted coffee. In the taste, melow smoke and a nice coffee roast note. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry hint of smoke in the aftertaste. Nice mellow smoke presence and nice small presence of coffee.

Fatheads UP in Smoke

Pours a dark brown, almost black and oily. Off white head forms and leaves a fair amount of lace. In the aroma, big time smokey, roasted malt essence and just a hint of smoke cured meat. In the flavor, a pronounced smoke flavor similar to german rauchbier. Some chocolate and vanilla are there, roasted malt chimes in, but the smoked malt flavor is predominant. Finishes with a lingering smoke note. An authentic American Rauchbier.
