4oz on tap at the brewpub. Labeled 5.5%. Nice dark and milk chocolate, moderate coffee, moderate roast malt. Reminds me of the stout I tried earlier today at Smoky Mountain (which I liked), but this one is a touch nicer. Clear very dark red color, appears black. Thin brown head, with good retention. Leaves great full sheets of lace. Medium body, good full feel, mildly chewy. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Touch of chai-type spice in the finish. Solid, easy-drinking flavorful stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, with a thin but dense brown head. Smells like coffee, hickory, and pine. Thinner bodied, but not so thin that it’s a problem. Nicely dry and woody, with more coffee and piney flavors. Sampled at Knoxville location.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Draft pint many times. Pitch black with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose is char, milk chocolate, caramel and light resiny herb. Taste is the same as the aroma promises. Medium-heavy body is drinkably watery and has light carbonation. This was actually the first beer I had with vanilla ice cream as a "beer float", about 20 years ago and it still makes my innards flutter with anticipation, or something else. This is definitely the brewery’s best beer in their regular lineup.
