From tap at Calhoun’s, Kingston Pike. Pours a nice dark brownish, black with a lovely creamy, tan head. Aromas have a nice roasted coffee, chocolate note in addition to a lovely hint of sweetness. Roasted characteristic really follows through in the taste as the malt flavors come through finishing with a nice dry bite. Overall a very nice pint!
Dark stout smell, so dark NO light gets through....chocolaty, some coffee bitterness, a bit too much for me...bold flavor though, not watery... Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bitter stout. Creamy on nitro. Okay beer. Aroma is chocolate. Dark. Thick head.

5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Nice dark chocolate aroma. Coffee. Moderate roast malt. Satisfying moderate bitterness -- the most bitter beer of the 8 so far that I’ve tried in my flight here. Light to moderate sweet, a touch cloying, mildly astringent. Medium body. Kind of chewy. Very dry finish Light carbonation. Black color, with a tan head leaving good lace. Solid, flavorful, very bitter dry stout. I dig the black coffee character. Was easier to sip at than the other beers. Theydon_Bois (20452) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 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.

Black and long lasting head. Roasty, anise, a little boozy. Not as rich in the finish as expected from the start. Travlr (25771) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2014

Black colour with a small light tan head.
Roasted malt, coffee, mild sweetness and mild hops in the aroma.
Coffee, roasted malt, dry hops and mild bitterness in the flavour.
Not a lot of roast character. Lightly hopped. Smooth carbonation. Nothing exciting. AndyW68 (1589) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Black with tan head. Aroma is coffee with sweet cream and dark chocolate. Taste is the same. Nice dark chocolate bitter bite.
