Aromas of smoke and roasted malts; I get some bacon characteristics as well. There's lesser coffee, bitter chocolate, and a hint of licorice to round things out.

The taste is less than impressive. Bittersweet baker's chocolate, with a boat load of smoke and rauchbier tastes which I hate. I desperately crave some more sweetness for this beer to balance the rough bitterness and dry acrid flavors.

Mouthfeel is really full, mild balanced carbonation. Finishes really full and viscous; coats the mouth to a point of ruining the taste buds.

Overall, I had high expectations for this beer and I was delivered a smoky pork/bacon dry bitter mess. Not sure why people like consuming these flavors in beer, anyway. Not recommended, compared to the numerous better available styles available.

A vigorous pour into a pint glass gave a thin dark beige head that swiftly retreated to some islands and lacing about. It was black with the thinnest rim of brown.

Smelled of chocolate, roasted malts, hops, coffee, and hints of vanilla.

Flavors were similar to the smell.

It was typical in the mouth and medium bodied. This brew falls in the middle of the pack as far as Stout's go. No greatness or unique characteristics to be had, though nothing out of whack either..

Ser- 22oz bomber, given to me by the girl friend on her Pacific Northwest trip. Much appreciated my love ;).

a- pours a aggressively showing head with a super dark brown body no to be confused with your typical black in color stout but then again what American stout is...

s-fruit; figs, kiwi, molasses soaked pineapple, roasted malt and toffee.

T-Butterscotch, maple syrup, toffee, BBQ figs soaked in molasses enriched alcohol. impressive.

M- coats the mouth well, flavor lingers.

O- American style Stouts have taken awhile to become my favorite style and it has taken awhile for it to be a style that I’ve leaned to be a favorable beverage of choice when it comes to beers. This However brings something different to the American style and you know i appreciate the effort. So if given the chance i will purchase it again! Good beer for its style..
