Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass. A half finger light brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark and light estery fruit, toasted malt, light licorice and chocolate. Flavor follows with very nice dark dried, stone and light fruit well integrated with toasted malt, hints of licorice and wood. Sadly very little smokiness. Medium bodied. I would have hoped from some charred gunpowder from a Smoking Gun, but am still very pleased with the interesting flavors in this. Well balanced and well covered ABV. I hope I can find another bottle of this, I will buy it again in a heart beat.

Pours a black color. 3/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, roasted malt, sweet malt, smoke, and a hint of syrup. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hops, alcohol, hint of pine, and slight smoke. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.
