Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle courtesy of StFun. Pitch black pour with 2 finger tan head and oily lacing. Nose is smoky bacon, toasted malts and roasted coffee beans. Taste is charred barley, ash, coffee grounds and cocoa with a light smoky bitter finish. Alcohol is present on the backend. Medium, creamy mouth feel. A very good smoked stout. Thanks Josh!

Beerman6686 (5835) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Poured a black baclk color with a dark tan head. One of the darkest heads ive ever seen actually. Aroma was very smokey with hints of coffe and chocolate. Flavor was also lots of smoke, almost to the caliber of East End Smokestack but with more wellroundedness with the nice bitter coffee flavor. This is great Stuff.

mmmbeer (1365) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle (from Bulldog Liquor- Big Rapids, MI) served in my longing stein- poured blacker than a bad night in Austin once you peel away the horrifyingly false facade, yet another one finger dark tan had formed and tried to steal my car. Aroma of a darkened malt, perkulated coffee that has been sitting warmed continuously for over 24 hours, and... (insert melodramatic gasp here) SMOKE. Hits the mouth with a high-medium body, malt seems just a little too thin when compared to the other 3 that I have tried, bits of dark molasses notes in the middle are overpowered by SMOKE and cream, finish keeps going on forever like a brainwashed Obama supporter that just won’t learn to shut the hell up. Definition of irony for today- "The Blues" by GN’R came onto my player while I drank this. While in Texas. Yeah... sometimes you can never go home when you want to...

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle from the Piggly Wiggly. Deep pitch black, touch of brown at the edges. Tannish head. Nose has very little smoke in it, I guess it’s due to it being peat smoked rather than hardwood. It is a pretty nice stout, at any rate. A touch tart and acrid, but very smooth. Not overpowering. Pretty decent, but no smoked...

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle via Secret Santa. Thanks! Pitch black, very dark brown head. Nose is roasted marshmallow/burnt sugar, rich roasty malt, some inky darkness that I suppose is smoke. Flavor is more of that burnt sugar & roast, good toffee, light but present smoke, a twinge of hop. Long bittersweet slightly smoky finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, smoke, and cream. Pitch black hue with a small fully diminishing tan head that left no lace. Flavor is salty, smokey, and creamy. Palate is soft and full bodied. Very nice and rich brew. Great aroma and great flavor. Best of the series.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of wj94. Pours a viscous black right out of the bottle with no light penetrating. With an aggressive pour, the head was a small, dense mocha that dissipated almost immediately leaving almost no lacing. The smell had only a hint of charcoal and hickory smoke in the background and was more heavily skewed to the sweet side with roasted malts, dark chocolate and dark fruits. The taste is sweet up front with the chocolate malts and dark fruit before giving was to the smoky finish which lingers through the finish into the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is creamy with very little carbonation and just sticks to the inside of my mouth. This is a drinkable but robust stout that I really enjoyed.
