Pours dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt, smoky wood aroma with chocolate and light coffee. Roasted malt with some smoky woody flavors followed with a sweet caramel and chocolate flavor. Finishes roasted coffee flavors and a dry woody flavor and some smokiness. Really great roasty brew. Another great offering from Jack’s Abby. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 23, 2014
Black cola color. Smooth roasted aromas. Thin body and not so full taste. Nice refreshing beer. For what it is, its very good. rjplumer (1098) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Very deep black with tinge of red. Has a smokey roasted chocolate aroma. Sweet roasted smoke taste with sweet finish. Only leaves a slight roasted taste. The smokiness only stays a little and then leaves a refreshing feeling.

Deep ruby red brown clear colour with a fading tan head. On the nose aromas of lightly roasted malt predominates with hints of chocolate and faintly wood notes. The texture is lively and surprisingly light - medium bodied. The beer offers flavours of light sweetness and a hint of roast bitterness. The chocolate and roasted malt comes out clear and the smoke comes good after a brief moment. Well balanced and palatable. The finish is lightly sweet and lasting well.
