black pour with small brown head. Big roasty/smoky aroma with some chocolate. The flavor is similar, with some anise/licorace and a warming bit of alcohol in the finish.

My tastes may have changed a little because although I love sweetness, this could be just a little bit more than I want. But that’s not a complaint, because the beer is quite excellent. The smoked dimension and the wood/bourbon notes are all contributing to a well-rounded and interesting beer. Bottle from City Beer, San Francisco.
