I’m not a big fan of this beer. The smoke is a bit overwhelming and the vanilla accentuates an off sourness to it. Josh brought this back from his trip to Mississippi. LiMuBai (222) - - APR 29, 2013
This beer has a little, to non- existent head, and a deep coffee like color. It is thick, with a smoky aroma. It has a lightly smokey taste, with subtle vanilla overtones. Excellent beer. BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Creamy vanilla iced coffee nose with hints of wood and smoke. I think the smoke comes across as a chili pepper-like spiciness moreso than a salty or umami impression. Big, rich dark chocolate flavors with a boozey undertone that blends well with the hop bitterness. I think the strength of barrel and booziness in the mid through to the finish overpowers any of the smoked flavors, which isn’t a bad thing for me. atlrizzob (225) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Very good brew. The colour is black with creme head. It smells like smoked roasts. Very smooth taste with a good combo of the vanilla bean with a hint of roast and light smokiness. Wonderful. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Pours a dark deep brown color with aroma of smoked malt. True roasted malt flavor with a mild burnt aftertaste that leaves a nice flavor on the palate. The oak barrels is recognizable but not overwhelming. A complex and flavorful beer that I recommend for the style.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with effectively zero head. Nose has some roasting and smokey notes to it. Taste is much smokier than the nose, but very tasty. Smooth drink. leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Non-opaque black with thinnish head. Not a lot of smoke in the nose or the taste. Sweet, vanilla flavors. Somewhat sour. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle. Very dark pour with a nice creamy head. Light smoke and oak on the aroma. Taste is ungodly sour - just nasty. Drain pour. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle: Deep brown, nearly black, thin white sudsy head, little lacing. Roasty nose, a little smoked, some vanilla. Has an aspect that also seems a bit sour. Lots of roasty vanilla notes up front, smoke takes a back seat. Sweet, not a hoppy example. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Tart finish, almost like its getting too old. Otherwise a bit roasty, some vanilla, and certainly "tangy". SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
