Pours the requisite pitch black with a fairly substantial mocha head that settles to a ring. Nose involves chocolate, earth, molasses, and bbq peat notes that compliment the other tones. A little char and tobacco in there, too. Quite sweet with a solid roasted bitterness. Fuller, creamy, tingly, round, with a lingering roasted smoky finish. Really nice brew, like a smoky dessert. The smoke comes out more on the finish than the nose, and it works wonderfully. Listed at 7% ABV.

gEUS (1701) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2016
330 ml bottle at home. Pours intense dark brown, little to no head. Mildly roasted cold coffee, nice chocolate and mocca flavours, little smoke scent though. Watery body, quite some dry coffee roast, roasted and toasted bread, even some burnt malts.

I’m not a huge smoked beer fan but this one is pretty damn good. Dark brown medium body poor with a 2-finger dark chocolate head. Good smoke aroma and not overpowering smoke in the taste. Dark Horse is really solid with this one like all of their stouts. Well done.

bookman10 (902) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2016
So many porters include smoke, but I haven’t seen too many stouts. This isn’t bad. Pours a deep, dark black, with an almost purpleish head. Aroma of smoke, roasted grain, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is also mainly smoke (almost tastes like smoked meat), along with some sweetness, chocolate, licorice, coffee. etc.

Opaque, black. Medium body, moderate flavor, thin texture, crisp, rich and moderately hot mouthfeel, short length. Restrained bittersweet nature, fitting acidity. Predominantly roast flavors, coffee, bitter chocolate, Quite pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At a tasting, thanks, very little head, opaque black color, aroma of chocolate cake, wood and dark bread in the back, flavor of dark chocolate, coal and dark bread in the back, pleasant light bitterness. Nice though not really smokey.

WingmanWillis (130) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black with a tan head. Roast malts aroma, tastes the smoke but not too overpowering, little sweetness in there from a hint of dried fruits. Nice balance. Decent smoked beer.

BlazerT (471) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with small, light brown head. Poor lacing and head retention. Aroma of roasted malts combined with light to medium amoked notes (bacon). You can find here some dark fruits aromas - rasins, Taste is semi-sweet to semi-dry, but in the end definetely semi-dry with nice, dark chocolate bitterness. In overall once again above average stout from Dark Horse, this time with hints of some smoked notes.

Really dark brown beer with thick brown coloured head. Aroma has cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malts and some smoky flavor. Taste has lots of roasted malts, espresso coffee, slight smoked notes. Full oily body and quite high carbonation.
