Pours black and looks a bit thin. No head whatsoever. Air bubbles is all I got from a very vigorous pour. Nose is heavy peat scotch smoke. hard to smell anything else through the smoke but I am getting a hint of apple or pear. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter throughout until the end when the smoke hits and leaves a long bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Iím not a big smoked beer fan but I am starting to like them more and more thanks to this kind of beer. Itís a good one.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle from Ober. It pours very dark mahogany with tan like head of foam. The aroma is full and rich as it pulls up some band-aid and car tire store but also a mild level of chocolate and dark roasted malts in the background. The taste is similar with a mix of rich chocolate and dark roasted malts and then running quickly into band-aid and some mild smokiness. It ends with lingering chocolate goodness and thin rings of dark roasted malts that help urge you on to take another sip.
