Pours a nice ruby brown color with a nice creamy tan one inch head. Pretty good retention on this beer. Nice lacing.
Aroma is roasted malts, bitter coco with a hint of oak.
Taste is strong and bitter. Lots of roasted malt, coffee and hints of smoke on the back end.
Medium body with light carbonation.
Not a bad beer. Not super complex, but pretty tasty. I am not a big fan of a smoky flavor in my beer, so that might be affecting my overall impression of this beer. It's not super smoky, but I can taste it and it is a bit distracting. Try one, maybe it will be your bag.
