The beer hits of cold brewed coffee for days, light on the sweetness, complimented by medium roasted malt, a soft nitro mouthfeel onto a lingering roast bitterness.

The coffee addition helps to cover up the smokey elements in the beer as the nitro compliments the coffee flavors wonderfully.

A - One finger of off-white head which dissipates to a thin cap. Good lacing. Black body with ruby hues around the edges of the glass.

S - Roasted coffee. Slight smoked meat. Some dark cocoa.

T - Black coffee. Smoke. Bready with some underlying malty sweetness.

M - Medium-low carbonation. Thickish on the tongue to start, but the middle and finish it thin.

O - I enjoy S&D more. The coffee compliments the smokiness, but there was some underlying sweetness that turned me off.

The coffee and hint of smoke really make this beer delicious. This is perfect on a cold evening by the fire.

Excellent coffee nose, not subtle coffee taste, but very good.
