4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Nice treat from a real nice brewery. Pours stout like, black with ginormous khaki head. A little overcarbonated, but leaves a nice film after on the palate, and nothin some swirlin wont take care of. Sweet wood, smoke, licorice, roasted malts. Really beautifully done aroma and flavor. Light impression of smoked meat...like Alaskan but beef instead of fish. Will get again. 4.25."

Clear dark brown, minimal brown head. Roasted malts with smokiness and a note of smoked bacon, but not exaggerated at all. Licorice and coffee beans. Dry roasted malts with a smoky ashy ending and bitter aftertaste.

22 oz bottle shared. Pours dark with tan coffee cream head. Roasted malt aroma with a little chocolate. This beer has the smoke flavor, which I love, but it’s not too overwhelming. Chocolate malt flavor with a smokey finish that sticks around. Good, unique beer. Really enjoyed this.
