maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with effectively zero head. Nose has some roasting and smokey notes to it. Taste is much smokier than the nose, but very tasty. Smooth drink.

Non-opaque black with thinnish head. Not a lot of smoke in the nose or the taste. Sweet, vanilla flavors. Somewhat sour.

BVery (5937) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle. Very dark pour with a nice creamy head. Light smoke and oak on the aroma. Taste is ungodly sour - just nasty. Drain pour.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, thin white sudsy head, little lacing.   Roasty nose, a little smoked, some vanilla.   Has an aspect that also seems a bit sour.   Lots of roasty vanilla notes up front, smoke takes a back seat.   Sweet, not a hoppy example.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tart finish, almost like its getting too old.   Otherwise a bit roasty, some vanilla, and certainly "tangy".

jw0406 (728) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, sweet roasted malt, some smoke in the background. Medium bodied, a little too sweet

callmemickey (2475) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Dark black brown body. Think pale brown head. No lacing. Smell is whiskey, vanilla, chocolate and a little smoke. Flavor is overly sweet and cloying. Vanilla and roasted, chocolaty malts. Medium bodied, thin finish.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Top notch. The nose is roast and chocolate with touches of smoky vanilla. Transparent black with a tight fine beige head. Balanced between sweet malt and vanilla flavors and roast and smoke bitterness. Full side of medium bodied with a smooth carbonation and mouth feel and a balanced finish.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2012
I hope this was infected, because I can’ imagine they meant for it to smell and taste like this. I smelled sour, like vinegar, with some vanilla in the back. Tasted even more sour than it smelled, with just a little vanilla. No smoke. No chocolatey, coffee porter flavors. Drain pour. Will re-rate as soon as I can find it again.

edgallow (1863) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2012
12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of smoke, wood, malt and a hint of sweetness. Taste was kind of funky, smokey then tart, not much else.
