3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque black color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, burnt wood. Taste of roasted malts, some coffee, dark chocolate, and a smokey dry finish. If the smoke is coming from the bacon, then I guess that’d be impressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Capone’s. Poured a dark brown body with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted grains, hint of smoke. Flavor of chocolate, bread, smoke. The carbonation on this one is rather lively and the body is just a hair on the thin side. No hint of bacon in this beer anywhere but if they sold this as a smoked chocolate stout that seems more accurate.
