2018 release from a pint can rather than the pictured bottle. Very nice usage of smoke, yielding a light meatiness and smoked character that is immediately evident but not overpowering or too prominent. The base stout seems to be moderately dry and robust. Quite enjoyable, glad to have received it as an extra on a trade.

4.2/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a thick tan head that looks like a snow pack; sticks and sticks, leaving clumps of lace

Smell: Black bread, chocolate and dark fruit tones, underpinned by the smoked cherrywood

Taste: Dark fruit and chocolate, with the smoked wood and black bread tones building, through the middle; while the base beer is moderately sweet, the smoke and the hops offset this somewhat, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied but overcarbonated

Overall: The flavor profile here is really interesting, with the smoked cherrywood providing a unique edge; the buoyant mouthfeel is only a modest demerit though I would prefer a thicker, creamier body

Thanks, JohnGalt1, for the opportunity

Sample from brewer Derek, danke schoen! A break from the barley wines we had been drinking all night long, comes on dark and robust, full of roast grains, silky, slick and kind of chewy. Awesome cold weather beer!
