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.

Nicely balanced smoked stout, which gives a lingering smoke flavour, but is still easy to drink

Aroma chocolate, caramel, Appearance black, brown foam, Taste light sweetness, Palate medium body, soft carbonation, Overall it was a little on the light side and not much smoke in the taste. I would suggest this beer to a friend who is new into smoked beers because itís not that intense

Bottle from Bierkompass!
Pours deep black with a bubbly brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and a hint of smoke. Taste has bitter roasted coffee notes, some sweet chocolate and a slight smoked note. Finish has pretty nice coffee notes as well as some sweet chocolate and some smoked and roasted malts!

Bottle, as pictured. Not sure how long Iíve had it, but Iíve had it for awhile. Didnít get a ton of smoke in it, which wasnít a bad thing, because I didnít want a ton of it. Just a nice smooth and sweet stout.

Damico (2948) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pours very thick, dark, unclear black coffee in color with with a dark caramel creamy brown head. The aroma is quite dark roast bitter coffee dominating in a nice way, undertones of bitter cacao for sure. The body is quite creamy and delicious with roasted dark coffee flavors, chocolate, and the smoke has seemed to calm down with a few months on this beer.
