Draft pour at malt and vine. Black pour, smoked hop aroma, and you can definitely taste the smoke but it’s not overwhelming.

Niiccceee -- nearly stout like! Incredible chocolate aroma. Solid thick mouthfeel. Very intense chocolate notes. Not getting much smoke, so we have a misnomer here, but I really like this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is actually a bit more complex than I anticipated - I got some burnt roasting and a little dark fruit before I got the smokiness of this one. Taste is very smokey and dry, though I can get just a hint of chocolate at the end of this one. Not a bad brew...

Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium thin beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with flavors of smoked malt, dark chocolate and slight coffee. The finish is malty with a subtle smoke aftertaste. Decent overall.
