4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught, 9.5%. Surprisingly little aroma. Almost black colour, seems hazy. The flavour is sweet and salty at first, then it turns vinous with a mild bonfire smoked note. Subtle smoke, but still comes forward.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is pretty much black with a very small mocha colored head.
S: The roasted malts are really the first thing to hit me, but the smoke is not too far behind. There seems to be a bit of a lactose or vanilla thing going on, too. Some nice chocolate aroma is also present.
T: Lots and lots of roasted malts here. A good chocolate and coffee flavor along with just a bit of bitterness. The smoke is quite pronounced as you might expect.
M: The body is medium with quite a low level of carbonation.
D: Despite being pretty smokey, I actually thought this was good and had enough other flavors going on.
