[Tap] This beer is no longer retired. These notes are from 12/1/2014, but it still can be found in some places. Nitro pour. Black in color with a nice nitro head. Aromas of roasted malts and light smoke. Flavors of cream, smoked malts, peat, patent malts, bitter chocolate and some dry earthy hops. Rather thin. Despite the nitro I am getting a grainy astringent character here. akoeninger (775) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Great dark ale, rich earthy aroma with hint of peat and sweet malt. Taste is also sweet and malty, slight smokiness. The malt flavors are really good here. And it is not very heavy in body making it drinkable with a faint lingering roasted malt taste. I was impressed by this, like a burly scotch ale. I would say that more emphasis on the smoky peat could really move this into the inventive category.

Rich Black color. Nice earthy aroma. Rich dark ale taste, mixed in with a lot of malt. We also have a smokey peat taste like a great scotch. Only negative was it was a little watery. crossovert (13914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Take a smoky peaty scotch ale and and a buttload of roasted malt. It will put hir on your chest.
