I am typically not a fan of peat malt in beer, because it typically overpowers all the other flavors. However, the flavor of this beer is extremely well-balanced. I think it is the sweet chocolate that is offsetting the bitter smokiness.

[5656-20130816] Bottle. Roasted smoked wood aroma has a bit of a barnyard characteristic. Black body with a medium-lasting foamy tan head. Roasted wood malt flavour. Full body. Tasty. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

Bottle. Black pour with almost no head. Aroma is rich, smoky, nice molasses and roasty notes as well, nice and complex but also balanced. Taste is roasty, bitter, with a long scotch like smoky finish, very low sweetness. Palate is med bodied, low carbonation. Nice beer.

Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, szybko opadająca i pozostająca jedynie przy ściankach. Całość jednak gęsta i oleista Aromat: zdecydowanie słodowy - czekolada, kawa, paloność, melanoidyny oraz subtelna nuta torfowa i nieco alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy, zdecydowanie pełny, słodko - wytrawny. Czekolada, kakao, paloność, spieczone ciasto, oraz wędzony, torfowy i nieco alkoholowy finisz. Jedno z ostatnich piw zakupionych Żywcu, ponownie z powodu rekomendacji na ratebeer. Jest to wędzony stout z Browaru Dark Horse ze Stanów Zjednoczonych. Uprzednio piłem kilka innych propozycji z tego browaru, ale tylko jedna (Pelkulator Coffee Dopplelbock) wywarł na mnie naprawdę duże wrażenie. Pozostałe, choć oceny miały również wysokie, nie rzuciły mnie na kolana. W tym przypadku o zakupie zdecydował obiecana wędzoność, jednak nie jest ona tak wyraźna, jak choćby w rodzimym Smoky Joe (zwłaszcza wersji fanowskiej). Barwa jest bez zarzutu - czarna, jak smoła, jednak piana mogłaby być nieco bardziej trwała. Aromat jest adekwatny, choć dla mnie bardziej przebijają się melanoidyny, niż nuty wędzone. W smaku są one także nie tak wyraźne, jak oczekiwałem. Zaznaczone, ale przegrywają z palnością. Ogólnie zatem bardzo przyzwoite piwo, jednak bez szału.

pours hazy very dark brown with a small reviving beige cap, leaving some nice lacing. bittersweet chocolate, salted burnt caramel, smoked nuts, hint of sweetness - maple syrup and molasses, very nice roasted prfile - never ashy. light carbonation, medium body - oily and thick, lightly sweet and firmly bitter-woody-smoky finish. very solid!

Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a nice black with a chocolate milk head thay fades into a small rim that leaves minimal lacing. Nose is of milk chocolate, moka, caramel and smoke. Taste is intense smoke, not sweet but surely not dry, no ash. It gives good roasted coffee impression and the smoke is harmonious with the not so heavy base. Body was medium-full, carbonation medium and like I said it was thick but not too heavy (which I can appreciate). I think smoked stouts and porters might be my new thing!

Pours jet black with a brown head that falls down to a thin layer. Smells of roasted malts, toast and smoke, hints of fireplace and tar. Medium sweet, quite toasty, some smoke and ash, tar in the back of the palate, roast and hints of coffee. Moderate bitter finish, quite complex, very enjoyable

Tobacco and charred oak, nose. Black, thin beige head. Charred oak flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. The last beer of a particularly long session, my palate was probably fried by the time we got to this one. Still, this had nice toastiness and was enjoyable.

bottle. Near black with one finger head. Thick malty stout with light-to-medium smokiness. I appreciate that it’s doesn’t have much of that "hot dog" flavor that I get from other smoked beers. Not a style I dig, but this seems well done.
