3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Likely 2012 bottle to snifter. Ink black pour, not much carbonation. Thin egg shell colored ring for a head. Aroma is chicory, burnt maple, and light, char. Taste is lightly sweet with peat moss smoke. Slippery mouthfeel. A hint of licorice presents itself in the finish as the glass opens up. A touch alcoholic, but that’s ok.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a brown head. Taste smokey, roasted malt, dark chocolate. I thought this was so so. I would pass on this.

Dark chocolate brown, glints of garnet at edges. Aroma of smoke and toasted bread crust. Flavor is a restrained smokiness with dusty malt sweetness, some chalk and peanut shells. Earthy hops, slight tree sap in bitterness. A yummy balanced beer. Medium-heavy palate.

Bottle from App Vintner - it’s a smoked stout, that was aged a year. Not my style of stout. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of chocolate, some smoky, ashy elements, char. Taste blends smoke and sweet to bitter dark malts into a chocolatey beer with a warming finish. Some vegetal elements emerge as the beer warms. Decent.
