Pitched black with a small capping of cocoa hued dense, creamy foam lapping to the top. The cap flattens out sort of quick to a thin collar. Long, stretched out strings of lace along with a few globby spots decorate the gobelt skimmingly.

Broad aroma of deep roasted malts, smokey peet, dark fruit of currents and raisin, spicey cracked pepper notes, semi charred, slighted with a warmth of good Ol' EtH breathing lightly over the top and a poof of chocolate behind it.

Complex taster as you get into it with a nice smoldering cast of tangy smokeyness luring among a small tang of dark fruity currant and fig and creamy chocolate. Tiny pepper spicings knock at the back door, while a warm breeze of alcohol seeps through the screen of the back door.

Well layered in a creamy smooth body that stays just a nudge above medium as it warms and really gains a comfortable level of carbonation with a warming center and peppery biting finish.

A wonderful treat to behold from Weyerbacher. This will age nicely for a few years and maybe smooth out even more? The warth and spiced peppery smokeyness melds well together but could probably smolder a while longer and submerge into a fantastic brew with time. As is, at release time, its already solid and reminds me of Stone's Smoked Porter and Rogue's Impy stout being one together freshly brewed. A nice concept; a nice beer by Wb!
