3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at shakesperes, Kalamazoo MI. Dark black pour with a thin layer of light brown head, served in a goblet. Lots of lacing. Little creamy, little smokey like a bonfire. Thick foamy mouth feel, very low carbonation. Well blended flavor, chocolate and a hint of smokey finish, a little dry. Last time I had this at right brain it was woodier/smokier, a lot more character. Hope to try it again.

Black with a tan head. Aromas of Chocalate, expresso and smoke. Full-bodied flavor that is so smooth. I’d love to drink this with some smoked pork. Finishes fairly clean with a hint of Chocalate and smoke.

Sampled at GABF 2015. Based on the ingredients I was not sure what to expect. In the tasting glass appeared black with a dark tan foam cap. Nose is chocolate and some light smoke. Full rich body. Flavor is complex with Aromas of chocolate, smoke, and a earth. Finisj is big on chocolate and the smoke, and some bitterness as well. Really good.

Nose like smokey barbecue, caramelized pork, molasses, liquid smoke, cocoa. It’s a cookout, a tailgate. I could smell it all day. Flavor has a saltiness at the finish, kind of ashy, low sweetness, a little milk chocolate. Lingering charred pork flavor. Thin body and appearance. Piggy!

Pours a pitch black. Aromas of smoke, salty meat, and coffee. Semi dry finish. Drinking this in the warmer side brings out more meat characteristics.

Nice smoky start with a bacon hit at the end. This is a wonderful beer that really hams it up for you.
