3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1pt 9 fl oz served in an allagash glass.
A - Dark brown with amber highlights, 2 fingers of sturdy off-white head, the head is moundy and clings to the edges of the galss.
S - Very smokey aroma, some lye soap aroma, burnt grass, smoked Canadian bacon, bbq wood smoke, smells like sweet black pepper bbq sauce.
T - Smoked bamboo stalks, smoldered grass, some sugary fruit in the background, grassy hops invade the smoke toward the finish. Some burnt caramel lies underneath the smoke. Savory smoked meats come to mind. Finishes quick with a swift but dry smokey note.
M - Lush carbonation and feel, medium to light body, dry smokey finish.
Very focused on the smoke obviously but lets the other flavors play out. The aroma is much stronger in smoke than the flavor. The aroma has more of a bbq smell, while the taste has more of a smoked grass flavor. Awesome if you like smoked beers.

Pours a pretty thick brownish head and has a very dark amber appearance, a little bit clear. Even before pouring into glass, smokey aromas were quite obvious, kinda like that woodburnt smell. In actuality, it totally overpowers any other aroma I might get. Has good lacing. Mouthfeel slightly watery. Flavours right off the bat also has that smokeyness to it. Something like burnt roasted dark malts. Actually not offensive. Kind of reminds me of St Peters whisky beer, but better tasting. There’s hints of honey, even bacon, but pretty faint. Such an odd beer aroma/flavour wise but it’s pretty darn good.

dark, almost black, similar to coffee. Form a durable layer of foam, creamier texture and color. It gives off an intense aroma of smoked, such as bacon or smoked cheese. After roasted malt notes something spicy and coffee are appreciated. It is such an intense and enveloping aroma, which is totally unmistakable. surprising and intoxicating taste.
predominantly strong smoky flavor, and in the background, slightly sweet roasted grain to malt, which gives way to a long aftertaste slightly bitter hops tempered by the lingering aroma of smoky flavor is appreciated. It has achieved a near perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness.

500ml bottle at Josh, vintage 2004. Aroma is still smoked (but not as so agressive as a fresh version), some fruity notes. Quite sweet taste with the same notes. Not bad :-)

Dark brown with a medium white head. Beautiful smoky aroma of bacon and smoked cheese. Sweet and malty in the palate, with a strong roasted and smoked malty backbone. Low bitterness and medium carbonation. Fantastic.

500ml at the Railway Station, Durham. Dark amber pour, with a pale yellow sea-froth head. Aroma of well-smoked bacon rind and bourbon. Flavours of age-old smoked bacon and acrid woodsmoke, with a faint note of old ale. Simple tastes, yet very flavoursome.
