On tap at 21st Amendment. Itís a dark brown beer with a small light beige head. The aroma is roasted and lightly bonfire-like. Coffee and a touch of dark chocolate too. Roasted flavor with coffee, some bonfire and chocolate. Rather boring actually. Full body, dry and nicely carbonated. Bitter, roasted finish. A beer that didnít exite me at all. 130805 joshwoodward (575) - - AUG 5, 2013
Had a taste of this on tap as a flight at the brewpub in SF. Meh, this is kinda bitter and austere. I like the smoke, though. Note: this was not an imperial.

Draft. Very dark brownish maroon, brown head. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, burnt chocolate. Taste of espresso pot left on the burner for too long, rich with a smoky edge. Very nice. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Terrific smoked nose on this one. Sweet and smoky with molasses and coffee. Meaty. Very nice nose. Dark brown-black clear with medium carbonation and light alcoholic warming. Starts with a ton of smoked malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Carbonic gassy acidity with roasted bitter malt, light sweetness, with medium hop bitterness under the smoke. Light in the finish. Nice profile but itís a little unbalanced at the end - a bit harsh in its bitterness. Aquilo (651) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Dark brown with a medium head and thick lace. Aromas of chocolate and coffee, a hint of smoke. The flavor is fantastic. A very smooth and balanced bitterness. More coffee flavor and lots of smoke in the finish. The smoke lingers on the palate for a while. Thirst quenching. I love it! badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Black with a small fizzy white head. Dark roasted almost burnt coffee aroma and taste. Very mild smoke notes, but a rich malty grain taste and a reasonably creamy palate. marcus (10145) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 22, 2010
On tap at Toronado. Pours black with a thin tan head and a strong treacle and smoke aroma. The smoky malt flavor is anything but subtle, however it complements the hop bitterness quite well resulting in a fine brew.
