On tap at Brass Tap, Pembroke Pines, pours a beautiful dark black pour with a nice java head . Nose is deep smoke, dark chocolate and fresh roasted coffee. Taste is smooth and velvety, noticeable alcohol with smoke, chocolate and coffee and full of flavor. The cedar is easily appreciable as well. Finishes on the same woody, chocolate, coffee notes. Great beer. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Pours black with a sticky mocha foam head. After the foam dissipates it laces the glass nicely. The aroma is of roasted smoked malts, almost ash like, with cedar, minor chocolate, and has a weak earthy hop aroma. The flavor is rather roasted and full of dark malts with a subtle cocoa taste, and a touch of sugary carmel flavor. The finish was pleasantly bitter and had a semi sweet dark malty taste with a soft dryness. Overall a very good smoked stout.

Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of smoked malts and cedar. Smokey and roasted malt flavors with cedar and some chocolate. Full body with soft carbonation. Weird but good.

Dark, oily black pour with a dark tan head. Sweet and smokey aroma with a hint of dark fruit or candy. Taste is roasty, smoke, licorice, and wood. A touch sour on the back end.

J’arrive à la maison et qu’est-ce que je vois cette bouteille. Quelle belle surprise, gracieuseté de slovaksniper. Un liquide noire qui avait peu de mousse. Un nez qui surprend par ses effluves de boîtes de cigares, de pin, d’iode et médicament. Je suis allé dans un magasin cubain, un humidoir géant, c’est exactement ce que sent cette bière. La bouche a une belle texture. Une amertume marquée avec de l’iode.

Sa robe est particulièrement épaisse et foncée. Sa tête brune persiste et signe. Son nez de cèdre, de poivre et de tabac est rapidement arrondi par des céréales rôties qui débordent aussi de chocolat, de caramel et de mélasse. Une fois apprivoisé, ces arômes me semblent bien cohésifs. En d’autres mots, cela marche bien pour mes narines. Ses saveurs de cèdre restent bien fortes mais aussi bien contrôlées par l’appareil malté. Le boisé est bien poivré et même pimenté. Une fumée jusqu’ici latente se met à virevolter au-dessus d’un effet franchement terreux. Une complexité fruitée semble vouloir se dessiner sur mes papilles. En bouche, le corps de cette bête en bois frôle le superbe. La texture est riche et le pétillement adéquat. La finale est sa grande qualité. Un mélange intelligent de notes chocolatées décadentes et de notes boisées piquantes qui assèchent à souhait. Ceci n’est pas de la petite bière. Intéressante.

HMOG 2014. Thick black. Boozy, fruity, big smoke, char, sweet matly ending. Starting to dislike smoke flavors more and more, but this was pretty nice with some woody notes.

750 ml bottle. Pours a wonderful totally black color with a large brown head. A huge perfumy cedar nose. The flavor is a mix between massive cedar and more traditional sweet stout elements, sweet chocolate, ash, a bit of caramel. Due to this mix it seems a bit like a CDA. Very smooth and good. I enjoy the humidor stuff.
