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.

Beerathon (1499) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
This is the perfect amount of smoke for me. Plays off as a roasted chocolate flavor. Silky smooth mouthfeel, a bit of a bar-b-q taste to it, but not in an annoying way. Black pour with tan head. Good.

Swaroga (1664) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2015
Pitch black with a small brown head. Taking the color of it I’m surprised by a subtil and moderate roastiness to it. I get some peated, fruity and coca-cola like aromas. Interesting. The beer is medium oily and has a delicate carbonation. Flavor is medium sweet, a bit dry and has a roasty aftertaste but not overwhelming. Good balance and hides well the alcohol. An easy drinker.

Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate with smoke and more coffee. Taste of the same. Palate is medium to thick. Nice lacing in the glass. Overall very nice example of a smoke stout.

Christpuncher (1792) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Much better than expected. Roasted malts, slight smok ness, and a chocolate coffee flavor a dominate this complex beer. Pours like motor oil with a brown thick head. Bottle pour at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is dominated by smoky charcoal flavors, along with some roasted coffee flavor. Hops are pretty subdued. Very little head; a very dark brown almost black color. Some sweetness, especially on the finish. Bitterness, but seems more from the deep roasted and smoke flavors than from the hops(?). Full bodied, but the texture is a tad thin, lacking the oiliness of many of the best stouts. Average carbonation. Long, smoky, sweet and bitter finish. Overall a pretty good smoked stout. I like the degree of smokiness and the long and varied finish. The base stout is not a great one which holds down the rating a bit.

solidfunk (5010) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 1, 2015
Very rich, very tasty and all around wonderful. Smoke is just big enough with lots of roast some still hanging around. Pours black with great mocha head and lacing. Dark chocolate and a hint of caramel. Creamy consistency. Bitter finish. Great, complex palate and great balance. Bottle.

I'm tap at pies and pints. Nose is smoke. Beer is smoky is well but delicious. It pours black. It is tasty. This stupid rate beer app unfortunately doesn't change the landscape mode and won't show you your text. I can't read anything this damn thing is saying. This thing sucks balls I hate this app. As soon as you turn landscape or switch to a different app it freezes. Rate beer sucks balls. You heard me.

Draught @ NYC Craft Beer Festival. Inky black with large foamy tan head, little mocha aroma, low carbonation, burnt coffee beans taste, full body, long finish. Great brew!
