Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore. Pours dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoke and roast flavor is chocolate and roast and lots of smoke. Works well. This is a nice beer. A bit sweet on the finish. Alcohol warms. Medium bodied.

Dark black, tiny brown head. Big smoke nose, roasted malts. The taste is the same, vanilla, hint of coffee, chocolate. It’s a basic imperial Stout but the smoke rounds the whole beer together nicely.

Pretty impressive. Beautiful pour, interesting that the smoke dissociates and doesn't linger. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark, almost black color with an off-white head. Aroma was notes of light smoke, roasted malts. Flavor was full of dark chocolates, some bitter malts, roast, smoke permeates each sip, but is not overpowering in the least. Interesting brew.

HighWine (942) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2013
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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2013
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.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2013 Pours like a commercial. Aroma of chocolate coffee. Flavor is caramel coffee with a smoky metallic finish. Pretty good.
