Serve this just under room temp for best results. When it is cold it is overwhelming, not in a good way. Beautiful look and nice mouth feel. Brew sweetens as it warms and the charred, fake smoke flavor is balanced.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2014
2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. Black body with a thin off-white head. Black roast malt, piney hop aroma. The flavor has bitter hops on the front, burnt roast malts on the back. Spritzy, hoppy.

JHeath99 (1143) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a dark opaque black with a layer of tan head. Aroma of smoke. Taste of burnt malts.

Gachupines (954) - USA - FEB 12, 2014
Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is woody with a touch of oak and general burnt wood. A little bit of roasted malt is noticeable. Flavor is very woody with a little bit of vanilla. Roasted malt, but a clean finish. Heavy up front, but surprisingly light aftertaste. Wife: 3.6

jtclockwork (8960) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle at RBWG. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of oak, burnt wood, toast and cocoa. Light smoke. Medium body.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Sampled at 2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. Black, ring of tan foam. Smells like spicy coffee, with some piney and grassy notes, too. Taste is coffee, a weird medicinal flavor (not bad, just weird), and some woody, oaky flavors.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2014
It was nice to see this one on tap at Oblivion. This was a very smooth lager with JUST enough smoke. The aroma was full of charred oak and spent coffee grounds. It tasted less smoky than the scent hinted, while the rest was soft caramel and berry. Good stuff.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2014
On tap at Oblivion. Nose is roast, ash, wood, smoke, chocolate, fruity esters. Pour is black. Flavor is similar. A touch of sweet fruitiness behind a not so hidden smoke and wood quality. I thought this was excellent.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
alexsdad06 (5904) - Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle shared at RBWG tasting. Pours a cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts to the point of being burnt, peat, earthy, a splash of coffee. At times, a bit strong with the ashy char.

3.9
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle - Peat, smoke and char. Jet black with a thin head. Stinky cheese, the really ripe ashy skunky kind. Smokey, peaty, stinky and crazy. Love it.
