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.
