3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Dock Street Brew Pub. Poured a deep brown color with small sized off white head. Aromas of lots of smoke (camp fire), some dark chocolate, earlthy, and a littel fruity. Tastes of smoked meats, chocoalte, roast, and fruity. If I had this one blind, I would have guessed it was a smoked beer. Not too much chocolate, but I did enjoy the smokiness.
