Nice. Roasted, toasted and smokey. Very dark and creamy in appearance. Full palate that was creamy and smooth. Low carbonation, which benefitted. Smoke, coffee, roasted malts with a clean finish. It coats the mouth and seems almost like a milk stout. Pleasant.

Pours a vicious tuxedo black with 1 finger of latte colored head. The aroma is intensely woody. Bitter chocolate. A touch of date. And a REAL smoke aroma. Charred wood. Taste is chocolate. Caramel. Leather. BBQ. Taste ends a little harsh, but to be truthful I'm not much a fan of smoked beers in general. Mouthfeel is oily and thick. Semi sweet finish. Not much alcohol presence. My least favorite of the 1-5 series, but a damn solid beer. ---Rated.

Could have been smokier, but with all things from these guys it's still very good regardless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pitch black with a dark head. It tastes chocolately with a smoky finish. A very good beer.

12 oz. Bottle from Rebekah. Big thanks goes out to her! Pitch black pour with a nice creamy mocha colored head. Big time roast aroma, bittersweet chocolate, smoke char, and just a hint of sweet dark fruits. Flavor is super rich roasty bittersweet chocolate, subtle molasses and fruit sweetness, and finishing with a big blast of smoke on the palate. A combination of smoke and chocolate lingers for a long, while like smoked mesquite BBQ kind of wood. Big rich mouthfeel--impressive for the ABV--silky smooth with low to low-medium carbonation. Reminds me a lot of Plead the Fifth but with extra extra roast and some smoke. Smoke doesn't overpower which gives this a nice complexity among all the flavors present. This is really really good!

Pours a great black color with a deep brown head looking wonderful. Really nice fresh coffee bean smell. Flavor is interesting with big chocolate feel upfront and finishes with the comeback of the coffee flavors. Good stuff.

It’s pitch black with a dark brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, licorice, roasted malt, BBQ - not so much peat, I think. The flavor has a medium sweetness and lovely roasted notes of licorice, chocolate and towards the long finish the peat creeps lingering in the picture alongside a little dryness. Lovely and easy to drink.

tdmuel (250) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Pours a very dark black with just a bit of red on the edges and a almost non existent light brown head. Roasty coffee on the nose, caramel, raisins, cocoa, and a light peaty note. Tastes great, lots of super dark bitter chocolate, a kind of smoky coffee flavor, vanilla bean, a nice nutty character, and a meaty finish. Delicious. Not as smoky as I would have liked, but I think it still works really well.

Medium body black pour with thick brown head. Chocolate aroma hint of smoke. Awesome amount of smoke, not overpowering. Chocolate and vanilla. One of.my favorite smoke beers. Light carbonation.
