Tasted at the brewery on December 16, 2017. Might need to come off the retired list.

Near black in color where no light shines through the glass. Modest beige head which leaves some streaks on the glass.

I smell very strong smoke and ash. It's like a spent campfire. There's a bit of cardboard in the background.

The flavor is dry and complex. The ashen burnt flavor is present but not as strong as the smell would lead one to believe. Moderate body and carbonation. The taste isn't as dark as the color indicates. The swallow brings out darker malts but surprisingly there's no coffee nor chocolate, just the long lasting charcoal flavors.

This beer is still being brewed at the Harpoon Brewery in Boston as of April 1st, 2017. (And no, this isn't a joke.) Lots of smokey flavors and aromas in this one. Very enjoyable selection.
