Draft sample at Brewgrass. Very nice surprise from this small brewpub. Dark brown, beautiful pour and a creamy tan heaad. Roasted barley on the nose and some creamy chocolate. Roasty goodness all around. Solid. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Draught at the PF brewery. Pours opaque black with amber at the very extremities, and cascades to a well-formed brown head that laces beautifully. The aroma is clean and roasty with some hints of mocha. The flavor is very chocolatey at first, then moves on to nuts and roasted malt, and culminates in a dry, slightly ashy finish. After a few minutes, coffee tones become increasingly evident. The mouthfeel is smooth and dense. Definitely the best offering from this brewery, and probably of East Tennessee.

Black with nice-looking, but nitro induced head. Tasted like rich melted chocolate bars and brownie mix. Thick and evil, way more-so than I expected from this little brewpub. Bitter, dry baker's chocolate ending was nice, too. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Draft at 2005 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a black color with an average sized tan head. Smells of light malts to include chocolate and roasted coffee. The flavor was of coffee and smoked wood with a creamy chocolate ending. geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Dark stout smell, so dark NO light gets through....chocolaty, some coffee bitterness, a bit too much for me...bold flavor though, not watery...

Black with tan head. Aroma is coffee with sweet cream and dark chocolate. Taste is the same. Nice dark chocolate bitter bite. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2009
had this at my second visit to the brewery. probably the best beer they have. definitely a dry stout, and i think this was nitrogenated. so it was pretty smooth, and pretty light. your usual roasty chocolate. milky, pretty creamy. no alcohol. not bad. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2015
This is an awesome beer. Great looking dark brew with a nice tan/white head. Boozy... Yes! But, this is the best beer that smoky mountain makes by far. Enjoy. LuckyDog (615) - - AUG 22, 2014
Not a lot of roast character. Lightly hopped. Smooth carbonation. Nothing exciting. shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Damn I like stouts! Deep black with a nicely laced, though flirtatious light, head. Tastes of chocolatey hops with a bit of coffee dancing about at just the edge of sensibility. I could stand a bit more alcohol in it, but otherwise, a pleasure.
