3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interested bottle of peat and smoke. Heavy peated notes with a mild chcocolate dusting and a ton of heavy liquid smoke. Peaty and roasted malts are blended well but linger into the aftertaste but like a ciggarette butt well after sipping on this guy. Just too stilted and not a cohesive brew at all.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the bottle. Extremely dark pour with a big light brown head that has some staying power. Smells like a campfire with some malts. Tastes heavy on roasted malts and the smoke is mostly in the finish. Mostly sweet smoky flavor. Interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black pour with tan bubbles for a head. Aroma is char and meaty smoke with light chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is a bit heavy handed and imbalanced with some smoke and char giving way to an overly sweet, dark fruit laden stout. Somewhat lifeless, watery mouthfeel. I like the smoke on the aroma but the base beer is a sloppy imperial stout IMHO.
