The beer poured a solid coca-cola colour with a thin tan ring for a head. The aroma consisted of smoke, pork, roasted malt, and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was smoked wood, coffee, and chocolate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz sample on tap at the brewpub. Pours an opaque, very dark brown with moderate-sized light brown head. Aroma of burned malt and sweet fruit. Flavour also has a very smoky character, with some underlying fruity sweetness. Bit of lingering smoke in finish. Carbonation a little livelier than average. Ok.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Academy. Pours solid black with tan lacing. Aroma is roasty and smoky, with some rich oats. Taste is smooth, creamy, chocolatey, roasty, with a dry smoky finish. Nice thick body - oats or something else in there to accomplish that? My wife, as a rule, hates smoked beers, but she loved this one, and so did I.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep black pour with a tight tan-amber head. The aroma is lightly toasty and a little bit salty. The smoke is very restrained and light. Medium bodied but quite chocolatey with a lingering sweetness. Sticky and malty. It's okay but could use more smoke to really make a statement.

Smells smoked, tastes a little smoked. Thers some coffee as wel. Pours good colour, good head but little lacing. Very slim palate. Not nearly as interesting as name would lead you to believe.
