Throat-warming alcohol is evident from the start. Then you notice its richness and boldness. A little rough around the edges, but it’s a small price to pay. Some malt flavors eventually make their way through the ethyl. Smoky-burnt flavors seem to get most of the attention; malts take the back seat. Becomes smokier with every sip. Some burly stuff, no doubt.

Bottle pours a really dark red-brown, with a tan head. The aroma is pretty malty, light smoke note. The taste is smooth, the malt provides a nice bitter in the finish. Overall the roasted barley is strong, giving this beer a good taste and a rich finish.

Pours a deep brown with a fair and dense deeper white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, alcohol.....taste is slightly coffee dominating with a slight smoked flavor and a touch of alcohol late.....mouthfeel is a bit less than the pour would lead one to believe......overall it would be great to have it a bit more chewy
