4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours a dark brown-black with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted dark chocolate malts, dark fruits, smoke, vanilla, molasses, black licorice, and a hint of booze.
T - Starts off with a mix of dark chocolate malts with some raisin and other dark fruits and some black licorice. Through the middle, some vanilla and smoke comes through with some molasses. The finish is a mix of dark chocolate, smoke, vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, and a touch of booze.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch creamy with a sweet and smokey finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced smoked stout with a nice blend of smoke flavor and base stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: dark chocolate, roasty coffee, hint of smoke
Appearance: Dark brown to black, hazy. Small beige head, disapears fast.
Taste: More of the roasty malt with a coffe touch. Dark chocolate.
Palate: Heavy body, feels very thick and creamy (In the beginning I felt I could drink this with a spoon), low carbo. Long medium-heavy bitter in the end.
Overall: A very tasteful and heavy stout. On the edge of becomming too bitter in the end, could be just little bit more balanced, but overall a beer that tastes as good as when you open the bottle as after an hour in the glass.

Bought on CueTour 2011! Pours a dark black opaque color with great big brown head and lovely lacing. Fruity nose with caramel, roasted malts and cocoa. Good roasted malt flavor with some smoke. Sweeter than I would have thought, but very nice....with some coffee notes near the end.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Beer pours black with a tiny white foam. Citrusy hop aroma provides a dank musty aroma when combined with the peat malt. Flavor provides a sharp hop bite. Black malt bitterness and excessive hop is an undesirable combination. Finish is acrid and pungent. Like the person its named for. Oops, is that too much?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lovely aromas of coffee, which also dominates the taste with a little smoke and a little English liquorice. Good and rich with a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. Gentle in whole, in relation to alcohol strength.
