Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Deep brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is of peat, smoke and roasted malts. Taste is of peat, smoke and dark chocolate. wlajwl (6876) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Aroma is dark fruit, roasted malts, coffee and a small hint of smoke. The flavor is dark fruit, roasted malts, coffee, mild but lingering smokiness and a mildly tangy/acidic finish. jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a decent bit of tan head that doesn’t stick around for too long. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt. What sets it apart from others of the style is the hint smokiness in the aroma. The taste follows quite well. The sweet cream of the taste is complimented well by the subtle overtones of smokiness that aren’t overpowering but make for something different. The finish is a bit astringent due to a bit of salt and the roastiness
Overall a pretty good stout. Would definitely enjoy again soon Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Smoky roasted aromas, creamy mouthfeel with a slight malt sweetness in the flavor. A solid Porter would drink again. Most defiantly the smokiest dry stout I ever drank. If you don’t like smoked beers stay away

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Brown with tan head. Smoke, chocolate, and cappucino, with salt notes. Creamy but not heavy. Definitely one to keep an eye out for. I know of no better dark beer in Wisconsin.

Not as heavy as I expected but still a full bodied feel. Very smooth. Smokey and delicious. Nsanders (1150) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Near black with a thick mocha colored head. Smells smokey, like peat, tabacco, dry, and roasted malts. Mild sweetness that is dry and quickly fades. Medium body with a creaminess. Decent, would go great with a cigar or a steak. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2012
On tap at Old Fashioned, pours black with a thin tan head, the aroma has a good amount of milk chocolate and some caramel, the flavor has a bitterness of chocolate on the front end with a hop kick in the finish, overall pretty balanced and nice. thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Nice roast with distinct peat. Black.with white brown head. Interesting roast with an immediate pea5 coming through. Nice creamy and dry. Very good. Favorite for style for me. Good chocolate in flavor and nose. micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours rich and velvetty with a tall dense mocha head.
Aroama is rich and malty with nuiances of earthy peat at the end.
A good tasting stout with a big dose of roasted malts and smokey peat.
Smooth and semi dry finish. Me likes.
