3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes to a film eventually. Spotty lacing on the glass. Smoky, roasty aroma with notes of malt and chocolate. Medium body with a subtle smoked character, possibly tempered by the oak aging? Notes of dark chocolate and coffee as well. The finish is roasted malt with a touch of dark fruit on the back end. Pretty good overall.

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.
