Roasty smell. Pluses is the big roast, negative is the sourness which cannot be intended. Light brown, lace.

On tap at National Capital Beer Festival. Smoke and meatiness seems lighter then in the original - more balanced with some vanilla and oak yet there is still some heat from the booze. Black with a creamy light brown head that cascades beautifully. Seems fresh yet muted; love the interplay between the smoke and the barrel. Moderate body and mild carbonation. Slight sweet smoke, overall mild with some bitterness and a dry finish.
