Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown with an average brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate to heavytoasted smoke malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet toasted smoked flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex very good beer.

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.
