Pours a dark brown which let’s a tiny amount of light through. The nose detects the peated smoke smell which is quite pleasant. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle pours deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma shows roasted malt, peat, chocolate, and smoke. Flavor shows the same with additional coffee and indiscriminate dark fruit. Overall body is moderate to full, dry, and finishes with a roasted/smoked bitterness. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pours an opaque black with a crown of thick creamy brown foam. Nose is of malt with a hint of smoke. Very creamy on the palate, strong taste of smoked peat, dark roasted malt carmel and pepper assault the taste buds. This beer is packed with flavor. Stands alone as a banquet itself or can be paired with bbq ribs, pulled pork sandwiches or ribeyes or burgers off the grill. jtclockwork (16955) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours black. Tan head. Nose/taste of peat, smoked black malt, chocolate and light BBQ. Medium body. Smoked BBQ finish. arkurzynski (2446) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours dark brown. Roast malt and light smokiness in the nose. Nice round roast flavor that lingers slightly. Barely a hint of smoked malt in the background. Very even carbonation. No offending roast aspects. Just a simple, good stout.

Not the world’s greatest Stout. It’s a very solid taste, and a beer that you could easily drink one after another after another after... Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour brings forward a beer that is nearly black and has a thin tan head. Some spotty lacing and not so great retention, though there’s a thin collar throughout. The nose brings a bit of coffee alongside a strong base of roasted malt. The flavor is a bit more complex, adding in some dark chocolate alongside the dark, dark coffee. Roasted malt is dominant and becomes a bit too dry and bitter in the finish. Pretty solid effort; I’d have this again.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 This is one of the most unique tasting stouts I have ever tested. The peat smoked malt really does it for me. Boutip (6439) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark black color stout with a nice brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light smoke peaty malt with roasted coffee notes. Taste is a great mix between some peat malts with notes of roasted coffee and a light touch of black chocolate. Body is about average with good carbonation. Love the light smoked peat notes on that one. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Dark cola color with minimal head that fades quickly. Has a pleasant smokey roast flavor to it.
