3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of iron, charcoal, and coffee. Pours black with a medium white fluffy head. Taste is roasty with coffee and very dark chocolate with notes of campfire. Not too meaty for a smoke beer but certainly roasty. Not bad.

Draft. Medium brown head. Black in color. Aroma of bacon and campfire. Not much more goin on in the flavor. Really kinda just smokey so it can be smokey. Flavor is short of the aroma. And that was only two dimensional. Would probably not get another glass

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin to medium sized beige head. soft chocolate and a hint of smoke on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet chocolate into a little bit of smoke. Gentle campfire notes, never over powering. Lingering smoke finish with some roast bitterness. Tasty.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and smoked malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. The smoked malts are quite tasty. Meaty and bacon taste all over the place. Chocolate melds right in. Fun stuff.
