Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy smoked dark malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium smoked dark sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.

Keg at the Vintage. Smooth liquorice, dry and roasty, lingering dry finish, but not smoky enough!

Really nice one here. Smoke blends with the rest of the beer yet it is still the forefront. Dogbrick (13389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Sample at Brass Tap Polaris. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Smokey aroma with malt and chocolate notes. Medium body with flavors of smoked malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The finish is smokey with a charred malt aftertaste. Above average overall. j12601 (12973) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin to medium sized beige head. soft chocolate and a hint of smoke on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet chocolate into a little bit of smoke. Gentle campfire notes, never over powering. Lingering smoke finish with some roast bitterness. Tasty.
