Bottle… Pours a murky dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is of dark chocolate, espresso and charcoal with a somewhat reserved campfire-smoke component. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Sweet, nutty, chocolaty, light smoke flavor with a splash of deep roast coffee. Sweet mocha finish with a rumor of smoke at the wee end.
