3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours black in color with a sizable tan head.
S: Rich notes of chocolate and roast with what seems to be oak. There’s a fair amount of smoke to it as well as a light spice, seems like pepper. Molasses and just a hint of vanilla add some sweetness.
T: The flavor is much heavier on the smoke. A lot of roasted malt and dark chocolate with some hints of dark fruit and licorice. Espresso/coffee notes with a bit of earthiness to it.
M: Rather full bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: A bit smokey for me on the palate, but quite good otherwise.
