A-Black in the glass, one finger brown head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Mainly roasted and burnt malt. Not much chocolate or coffee.

T-Lots of roasted and burnt malt. Mild dark chocolate. Some dark fruits?

M-Medium bodied, velvety, some carbonation.

O-Age seems like it did not do this beer any good, mainly malt flavors, little to no chocolate or coffee.

The beer pours jet black without much head. While it is around it is a mocha colored head with a slightly creamy appearance and texture.

Smells mostly of bitter dark chocolate and anise. Roasty malt begins to take over. Being from Memphis where the smell of Hickory smoked BBQ permeates the air I can actually pull out hickory smoke from the distinct woody smells that come from the nose as the beer warms. I usually don't like smoked beers too much, but I really don't mind this, it is very subtle and takes more of a backseat to bitter chocolate.

Taste is roasted, bitter chocolate. Wood notes and a definite rauch-esque quality are present. I honestly don't perceive too much depth to this beer and I am a little disappointed. Looked forward to trying this, and at least I am getting my allotment of Holy Water for a little while. Maybe this will stave off the Flu...

Mouthfeel is rich and slightly creamy. Pretty standard for the style.

Overall the disappointment doesn't take away from the fact that this is a good beer. The smoked malts don't overwhelm this beer in the least. In fact if I looked at this as a smoked beer instead of as a stout it would recieve high marks from me in that category. As a stout though I would reach for something else next time.

22oz bottle shared in little plastic hotel cups.

Pours black with a small beige head, medium-low carbonation. Smell is roasty, black licorice. Some chocolate. Surprisingly mild.

Taste is sweet, but deep. Black licorice, chocolate, coffee. Deep roast. Slight alcohol.

Mouthfeel is light and surprisingly crisp. Overall, nice beer.
