3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating 1,000! Pours a deep black/brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and cocoa with a smokey note mixed in. Mouthfeel is thick. Taste is smoked throughout. Extremely so. It’s almost like sitting next to a live fire while drinking a stout. A pronounced hop finish blends with the smokiness to remove any of the sour notes typical at the end of dark stouts. Finish is also very dry. It could use a little bit of sweetness to counterbalance the smoke and bitterness, but it’s definitely distinctive.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours black with medium almost fluffy tan to ruby colored head, good lacing. Smell is piney hops, roasted...almost burnt coffee, chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla extract. Taste is dark bitter chocolate, cocoa, roasted coffee, oats, hint of smoke, and hop bitterness in the background giving a bit of grapefruit and orange notes. Carbonation medium to low, oily texture. Balance seems a bit off, but not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Jet black pour, almost no head. Coffee aroma and not much else. Flavor is more bitter and less sweet than I was expecting (especially compared to BGBW). Roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Moderate smoke undertone that is layered through the entire brew. It's there, but never center stage or overpowering. Surprisingly drinkable. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: super deep & black, inky & oily pour with a mocha, slightly gray-tinted head that settles quite nicely. Aroma contains sweet smoke, coffee beans, roasted malt, & a light finish of caramel-y sweetness. Faint cocoa & dry oats, but the smokiness is fairly dominant. Taste is similar with a strong smoke-y flavor, lightly sweet, all the way through, Underneath lies some faint, roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, & a finish of bitter cocoa. Light undercurrent of sweetness, leading into a cocoa & smoky finish. Very nice brew, even though I wasn’t expecting all of the smoke. Luckily I like smoked beers.

Bottle thanks to Nick! Black thick pour with a small dark brown head. Smell is muted coffee, roasted malts, and slight bitter chocolate. Taste is straight black coffee... Wow I don’t think I have ever had a coffee stout like this. I might not be able to sleep tonight. Other than coffee, I get some nice roasted character, bitter cocoa, and hop bitterness. Nice thick mouth feel, good carbonation.
