pours a dark color with some ruby when aimed at the light. there is a medium tan head. the aroma is smoky but not too much, you also pick up coffee, and brown sugar. the taste is very similar to the aroma and surprisingly at 8.03% ABV there is no alcohol taste in this,

Pours a dark ruby red with a creamy off white head. The aroma was of smoke malt with notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavor was of smoked malt with some coffee notes to it. The body was full with a somewhat chalky aftertaste but not in a bad way. Overall a very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nearly clear mahogany with a short tan head. The nose is of dark chocolate, coffee, and dark roasty malt with a light, sweet smoke note. Medium-bodied and slick with fine carbonation and a mildly roasty and bitter finish. The flavor is of coffee, dark roasted malt, and bitter chocolate. The finish has a bit of a piny hop note. This is a pretty tasty beer.
