Black with tan head. Aroma is coffee with sweet cream and dark chocolate. Taste is the same. Nice dark chocolate bitter bite.

had this at my second visit to the brewery. probably the best beer they have. definitely a dry stout, and i think this was nitrogenated. so it was pretty smooth, and pretty light. your usual roasty chocolate. milky, pretty creamy. no alcohol. not bad.

Damn I like stouts! Deep black with a nicely laced, though flirtatious light, head. Tastes of chocolatey hops with a bit of coffee dancing about at just the edge of sensibility. I could stand a bit more alcohol in it, but otherwise, a pleasure.

Smells like coffee, sweet throughout, nutty, caramelized, and roasted flavors.

On tap @ Turkey Creek. Pours a black color with a thick brown head. Lots of coffee in the aroma, fresh ground and roasted. Creamy body laced with coffee bitterness and chocolatey sweetness. Not bad!

Not a lot of roast character. Lightly hopped. Smooth carbonation. Nothing exciting.

Finally I get this beer! After so many things going wrong last year that prevented me from ever trying it, I now have it in my hands. Draught, pours opaque black, with a two tone dark dark tan/brown head. My God, that is truly a beautiful pour. The aroma is still pretty nice, lots of coffee and roast. Flavor is almost watery at first, but the coffee and roast comes in, and finishes kind of like dark bitter coffee grounds.

Had on tap at the brewery in Pigeon Forge TN. Came a rich black with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor of toasted malts and coffee slight sweetness and chocolate undertones. Pretty good brew overall.

Draught at the Sevierville brewery in a 33oz mug... no, two 33oz mugs enjoyed with a bunch of friends. When I had seated myself at the already-occupied table, I noticed most everyone drinking what I initially thought was the porter. Upon sitting, I realized I was wrong. The brew was way more dense and opaque and the lacing on everyone’s mugs was quite impressive. This was most definitely a stout. So, of course, I order it. Once I get it the nearly-two-inch tan head is almost overflowing. Aroma is a difficult thing to assess in eating areas. I did notice some chocolate malts and some hops. But it wasn’t overpowering enough to stand out from the mixed restaurant aromas. The flavour, however, was quite delicious. It’s quite creamy to the tongue and has a full mouth-feel without being too viscous. Chocolate is the most defining flavour with light notes of a roasty coffee and some nutty overtones. Hops is subtly noticeable. The chocolate flavour, while quite strong, isn’t overbearing. The finish is a little dry with slight bitterness. This is, most definitely, my favourite of Smoky Mountain’s brews.

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!
