"This 8% brews aroma is dominated by roster malts, mocha, and smoke. The smoke is even more subtle in the flavor. Flavor is roasted malts and mocha, hops & dark fruit. Robust yet dry in the finish, which shows a tiny bit of the smoke. Brewed by ass kisser ales AT Hermitage. I can’t believe Hermitage actually conceived and brewed this as its sooo much better than nything I’ve had from them."

12 oz. bottle from shrubber85- thanks again, Roger! I’ve seen a few of these at The Party Source but never get them because the name and labels are so unappealing. Pours a brownish mahogany color with a small off-white head. Notes of chocolate, very light smoke, brown sugar, tobacco, peat, tea, toast, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, earthy mouthfeel and low carbonation. The aroma works well but the flavor falls a bit flat. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2014
