Iím being generous with this one...Number one first and foremost..I taste tobacco. It sincerely reminds me of my days/years as a smoker. I do like it...unfortunately, I probably wonít drink it again. I am/would be very tempted to light one up to enjoy this brew.

Very dark pour,smells of chocolate mostly, tastes smokey with a coffee end, do yourself a favor and let it warm up a bit (flavors pop more)

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Rated on 7-25-2015 at 800 Degree Three Fires, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer is served with a small tan head that mostly diminished, opaque dark brown body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with light bitterness. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A good beer with a good flavor and worth trying.

Pour black with a nice head. The first taste hits you with roasted malt and chocolate. It had the malt of a porter, buy it is not to sweet.

This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sizes head of mostly diminishing fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black brown colored body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was very mild with soft malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and finish with a lingering coffee aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of coffee, dark malts, roasted malts and mild hops. A very good beer to start my weekend with.
