Low carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has firm roasted malts, dark chocolate, affirmative smoke, fairly sweet. Lingering malty bitter finish. A bit simple and brash really.

750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of moderate smoked malts, some vanilla, cocoa, and some roasted malts. Flavour of fairly intense smoke, roasted malts and cocoa. The smoke becomes a lot mellower the more you drink. Easily drinkable and smooth on the palate. No hint of the 9.5% ABV. Good stuff.

Thanks to nbutler! Dark brown pour, nice tan head. Light bacon, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes and some toffee in the aroma. Flavor has some smoke, but not overly insane amount. Good chocolate and roasted malt too. Very well done beer. One of my favorite smoked beers to date.
