Poured from a bottle into a Thirsty Dog pint glass black brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolate with subtle smoky sweetness. Flavor is sweet cocoa upfront with a roasted coffee bitter finish. Pretty decent smokiness here. Flavors balance well on the tongue. Definitely would like to try this on tap when I get a chance. Very well done!.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a small head that quickly fades to a very thin ring. Aromas are smoke, roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and nuts. Tastes pretty smoky with a light sweetness throughout. Also get burnt coffee and very light chocolate. Very low carbonation. Really smooth. Really nice schwarz that more smoky than most I’ve had.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2014
May be the best beer I’ve had from them. Aroma was nice. Mostly sweet milk chocolate with some roastiness to it. Pour was a deep dark brown/near black with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was delicious. Could not pick up smoke in the aroma, but it was there in the flavor. The roastiness and chocolate were delicious and the smoke was just an enhancement not a major flavor. Normally I would complain about that, but it just worked in this beer. Very light carbonation made the beer taste lighter than the 6.7% it is. Slightly bitter roasted malt finish with some lingering smoke. NIce

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pretty dark brown with a decent mocha head. Pleasant aromas of coffee and mild smoke, with some carobs and roasted malts. Chewy roasted maltiness, lots of dark coffee, lo-med bitterness, some creaminess, and greenish flavors. Medium bodied, alcohol well hidden, soft carbonation and quite balanced. Nice.
