Bottle: (Thanks JoeMcPhee!) Very dark pour with a deep brown head. Richly roasted aroma- dark cocoa, espresso, dark caramel/toffee-like malt sweetness is also evident. No smoke though. Mildly carbonated with a leaner palate than expected. The flavor has some bitter cocoa, licorice and a mild smooth liqueur-like quality. No smoke is detectable, only in a roasted espresso form, and perhaps a wood note. Nice malt character without too much sweetness, but needs more smoke. Still a solid Stout.

Bottle in trade with ford9719. Thanks dude!
Pours a dark and oily black with a rich colored and short lived tan head. Smell is sweet and dark roasty malts with a subtle yet noticeable smoked presence. Taste is pretty rich, chocolately and roasty, but smooth and with low bitterness. Full flavored roastiness followed by a nice soft smokiness that doesn’t overwhelm the beer. Medium to slightly rich mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lingering dusty dark chocolate flavor along with light smokiness. Pretty nice.

12 oz. bottle thanks to a trade with yem25. Pours a dense black with a thin, sudsy dark brown head that completely vaporized after the first sip and left no lace at all. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with just a trace of smoke. I honestly don’t think I would have picked up the smoke in the aroma had I not read it on the label. The flavor is mostly roasted malt with a bit of chocolate and again very mild smoke. The smoke becomes more evident in the aftertaste and lingers briefly beyond the swallow. Full bodied. A decent stout, but its restrained flavors are a little disappointing.

Bottle shared with GMCC2181, Thanks. Black pour with nice head. Aroma was nice, mild smoke, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste is similar with a nice smooth finish. A well balanced smoked brew by Dark Horse.

Brown to black with a large brown slowly fading head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, sweet malt and mild smoke. Taste of malt, both roasted and sweet, coffee and mild smoke. For it being considered a smoked it’s not that smoky, which is why I probably like it more than I thought I would. It’s smooth, rich and sweet with mild lactic qualities you’d find in a sweet stout and finishes up mildly bitter. Good stuff.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Summary: Excellent chocolate-bodied stout, more ashy than smoked. Aroma: Dark fruits and chocolate, full bodied, stokes the anticipation. Appearance: Black, deep brown only at the edges, a few bubbles of head. Flavor: Strong mocha backbone; caramel, vanilla, and bourbon sparkle through at the front, some roast malt in the middle, turning ashy in the finish. Palate: Thick and smooth, with a dusty finish.

Excellent stout. Pours like oil and smells or raosty caramel. Very heavy mouthfeel and does taste very smokey. Try it with ribs.

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!

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.
