Tap. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted malt, smoke wet wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy smoke sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid beer that would go well with spicy food or cigar.

Dark beer with an attractive brown head. Sweet nose of cured bacon. Lots of molasses and a bit of maple sweetness with some bacon and dying campfire. The alcohol finishes with a nice warming glow. This is a tasty, sweet, smoky beer.

On tap at the bocktown monaca. Yes, slight smoked bacon arom abut is that coming from the kitchen? Fairly dark. Almost black but it seems to be dark brown upon closer inspection. Smoked flavors from the start. Certainly a good example of its style. A little uneasy at times. Seems like the smoke was almost artificially added but Iím no expert, go figger. As with most smoked brews, quite one smokey sided. Bacon fried smoked bacon. Not impressed by this style but there ya have it.

On draft. Aroma of licorice. Flavors of smoky chocolate with some nuts behind them. Finished with a coffee like bitterness. Vaguely sticky on the palate. No trace of 9%. Probably under-rauched, still fantastic.
