Boulevard Smokestack Series Dark Truth Stout

I received a bottle of Boulevard Smokestack Series Dark Truth Stout as an extra from Bob Pack. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate, smoke, toasted malts, and vanilla. The taste is very dry and extremely smoky, similar to a charcoal grill. Behind the smoke, there is some dark chocolate, toasted malts, and and light vanilla flavor. The finish is dry and really brings out the toasted malts. The alcohol content is 9.7% ABV. This beer has a great smoke content, and starts out that way, but the best part about it is the smoked malts that come out in the finish. It is dark and chocolaty, but all about the toast and smoke.
