From notes. On tap at Bell’s Funvitational on September 12. The pour is a dark brown, lots of ruby shining through with a soapy tan head and a decent lace. The aroma is incredibly smoky. You’d swear it was a campfire! It almost smells like a lager also, over a porter. Strong smoked malts and not a lot else. A little chocolate maybe? The flavor is really smoky. I’m drinking a campfire. The smoke dominates. Some light chocolate but it’s all smoked malts and maybe a hint of roasted coffee. The mouth feel is light and well carbonated. The malts linger, but the smoke fades. Aftertaste is malty and chocolate. I like the finish better than the actual beer. Too much smoke for me. Not too bad though. ebone1988 (2171) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2015

Bottled on : 1.06.15. Brun acajou avec une tête un peu plus pâle. Une dentelle est observable. Au nez, délicats parfums de côtes levées sur le grill avec une sauce composée de cerises, de chocolat, de mélasse et, subtilement, d’épices BBQ. Au goût, un mélange adéquat de cerisier qui brûle, de chocolat, de fumée sucrée, de malts rôtis sur le charbon de bois, de tabac aromatisé, de viande séchée de bœuf, de houblons terreux et de jambon salé. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps moyen-mince avec un pétillement actif et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale fumée, salée, teintée par le tabac, viandeuse, boisée, fruitée, amère. Bière (93 IBUs) très intéressante, toute en finesse, peu excessive mais complexe, plutôt facile à boire et qui cache admirablement bien son 9% d’alcool. aracauna (3694) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2015
The head is surprisingly dense and creamy considering the body isn’t particularly creamy. There’s definite smoke here, but it’s balanced. We’ll done. Chocolate malt is equal to the smoke. Not overly sweet.

Savor 2015. I mentioned I really wanted to try this and Yazoo gave me a bit larger pour than normal...thanks! Nice amount of smokiness, nice mbitterness, just really a damn tasty brew. Favorite thing I had at Savor. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Aromas are sweet chocolate, burnt wood, and smoked ham. Tastes the same but with some added vanilla and a touch of cookie dough. Top notch smoked stout. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Thanks a lot beerbluesandbbq, the Vols were the better team! Perfectly black body with a medium orange tinted tan head. Subtle sweet smoke with some pancake notes. There is also some stone fruit, like prunes. The taste is sweet raisins and smoke with bits of tobacco. I got a bit of almonds in the finish. An overall smooth and well balanced beer that is on the sweeter end for a porter. The warming booze is only an afterthought with how easy this one is to drink. A solid beer. jbruner (5402) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin bubbly tan head that leaves moderate bubbly lace. Aroma is nice smoky wood over chocolate and vanilla. Taste of nice dark chocolate and bacon smoke, wow alcohol is well hidden, nice. DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Bomber. Super roasty nose with a bunch of acrid smoke and a touch of anise. Dark brown in color much like Diet Coke. Moderate malty flavor to start with only minor smoke (which is a nice surprise given the phenol-heavy aroma), and a touch of green apple. Light body, dry finish. Not too shabby.
