On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a snifter. Pours near black. Nose is far too smokey and meaty. Smoked herring. Some roast underneath. Flavor is similar, but more intense on the smoke. A bit more background beer as it warms, but I just couldn’t get into this one.

A pint glass on tap at Whole Foods in Vienna

Very dark brown with a tan head, good lacing

The taste is more woody than smokey, and given the high alcohol, well balanced. More similar to an imperial porter than smoked.

Mouthfeel is a bit light.

Very good overall but not true to the style.

Nice tan brown head that is foamy. Beer is opaque and black. Nice texture. Smell and taste are fairly smoky with a nice Roasty malt note. Light sweet caramel note underneath it. Light chocolate.

Body is good. Medium but on the heavier side. A bit thin but not watery and make drinkable. Biting carbonation is good and gives it a nice texture that works well with the body.

Overall, a very good beer worth getting and very drinkable. Great for a cold day.
