On tap at the Dock Street Brew Pub. Poured a deep brown color with small sized off white head. Aromas of lots of smoke (camp fire), some dark chocolate, earlthy, and a littel fruity. Tastes of smoked meats, chocoalte, roast, and fruity. If I had this one blind, I would have guessed it was a smoked beer. Not too much chocolate, but I did enjoy the smokiness.

Draft from firkin at Craft’s Dock Street event. Pours so black I can’t tell if it is turbid or not, with a 1-finger tan head that stays around for awhile. Well hidden alcohol, with predominantly dark patent malt and dark chocolate notes in the flavor. Fairly dense palate, with good complexity, and taste notes of late hops, fig, and minor rauchy hints matched by a gargantuan malt load. Delicious, and I feel like a real beer hunter every time I find a beer like this. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2010
