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!

5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Nice dark chocolate aroma. Coffee. Moderate roast malt. Satisfying moderate bitterness -- the most bitter beer of the 8 so far that I’ve tried in my flight here. Light to moderate sweet, a touch cloying, mildly astringent. Medium body. Kind of chewy. Very dry finish Light carbonation. Black color, with a tan head leaving good lace. Solid, flavorful, very bitter dry stout. I dig the black coffee character. Was easier to sip at than the other beers.

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.
