3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place about 2-3yrs old. Holy Smoke! Pun definitely intended. If you like peaty smoke, this is your beer. It was almost over the top at times for me and I like smoked beers. This trended towards BBQ and possibly Kool Menthols. Good but a little goes a long way.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared at DLD. Pour is jet black with a small tan head. The head fades instantly and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is of smoked malts, musk, earth, cigars. Flavor is of oak and smoke in the front with some booze and muskiness in the finish. Body has some hints of caramel and chocolate as well. Medium/heavy bodied, less than great carbonation/mouth-feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is jet black with next to no head. Nose is very scotchy, with earthy tones. Taste is the same and the stout presence is still there, though it is dominated by the peaty earthy tones. The warming sensation is there as well in the mouthfeel which is thick and oily.

Black with little tan head / Rich nose of cigar box, molasses, and oak / Full body, thick and lightly syrupy, almost flat, with great balance and finish / Flavors of peat smoke, whiskey, oak, and dark roast coffee / Not sure it’s needs to be this flat, even with 3 mos aging, but still great stuff.
