Draft. Not much head an a bit cold. Aroma is mostly missing but the taste is not. Mild smoke with rich chocolate flavor. Coffee is hidden and roast flavor is nice. This is great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanx to my friend Mr. Yates for the bottle, we poured a viscous dark chocolate brown brew with velvety tan head with red tones. Aroma is sort of bacony, with milk chocolate and caramel. It’s incredibly smooth with some milk chocolate sweetness and mild roasty bitterness. GREAT brew, alcohol is well hidden and the flavors absolutely meld, however nothing is too pronounced.

Black and thick texture. The scent doesn’t have a lot of smoke in it. Not the "smokeiest" smoked beer I’ve had, but really nice flavour. Chocolate and smoked meat. Like dinner and a dessert!

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Smokehouse aroma was initially very aggressive, but breathing and warming improved the complexity. Aroma: Creosote, bacon, prunes, olives and molasses notes there. Sweet, smoky fruity with some parched soy and other roast. Alcohol fumes collectedd in a tulip glass if you don’t keep it moving. Appearance: Brown-black, opaque with a fine-grained tan head. Good bottle and label. Flavor! Wow, this was really nicely played. Up front, some mineral/salty qualities followed by bitter chocolate, roasted nuts, light smoke, stone fruit, lightly sweet. Warming. Finish has alcohol and cocoa bitterness and some pencil shavings. Mouthfeel alternated between being slippery and being chalky/cheesy. Like ceramic slip. Formidable. New Leaf Market (Holy Sticker Shock, Batman! There wasn’t a price tag, and I was a bit surprised to pay $10 for a continental pint outside of a bar.)

Les notes de fumées sont profondes sans ętre envahissantes. L’assaut du chocolat noir en bouche est impressionnant et s’harmonise avec délicatesse. Trčs impressionné par tout ce qu’elle m’offre en ce moment.
