Pitch black and completely opaque with only the faintest of mahogany edges and a three finger, frothy beige head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Excellent retention, only slowly settling and completely coating the glass with sheets of soapy lacing on the way down.

Slightly smokey roasted dark malt aroma with a subtle earthy hop presence and sweeter light malts. Slight rauchbier character with charcoal, butane and smoked meat, however, not overwhelmingly smokey. The smoke is countered by delicate earthy hop resins, pine needle and grass. Underneath the smoke and hops, there is a robust dark malt presence with coffee beans, burnt toast, oatmeal and dark chocolate. The heavier roast is countered by sweeter dessert-like dark malts with hints of chocolate cake, toffee and caramel. Very complex with the subtle smoke and hop presence adding nice complexity.

Lighter body than expected with subtle roast and resinous hop bitterness countered by lighter dark malt sweetness. Somewhat watered down which is kind of disappointing but helps drinkability. Slightly smokey with barbecued meat, liquid smoke and delicate charcoal flavor. Faint robust coffee bean flavor along with toast, oatmeal and dark cocoa. Lighter malt sweetness with caramel, toffee and milk chocolate sweetness. Light body and easy to drink with decent hop and smoke flavor but the mouthfeel is weak and the malt bill is slightly one dimensional.
