This is an awesome beer. Great looking dark brew with a nice tan/white head. Boozy... Yes! But, this is the best beer that smoky mountain makes by far. Enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at Calhoun’s, Kingston Pike. Pours a nice dark brownish, black with a lovely creamy, tan head. Aromas have a nice roasted coffee, chocolate note in addition to a lovely hint of sweetness. Roasted characteristic really follows through in the taste as the malt flavors come through finishing with a nice dry bite. Overall a very nice pint!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Pigeon Forge, TN. Pours a black body with an inch thick, very dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter chocolates, a light roast, and a bit of a dark fruit note. Flavor is similar. Sweeter dark chocolates, a medium-light roast to balance, and a touch of coffee. Finishes smooth and creamy with a light bittersweet chocolate and roast. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, creamy, medium body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent dry stout. Sweeter chocolates with a decent roast backing while staying easy drinking. Not bad.
