Gentle but assertive smokiness, like a fire burning in the woods. Allows the malt to come through as well, chocolate and roasty. Has a light fruitiness. Smoke fades into bittersweet, not acrid, roasted not burnt, toffee, coffee, cherry, plums, and then returns to linger on your taste buds. Vinous quality peeks into the nose. Flavor a bit like old ale. Slick, yet dry.

Draft. Tight lace. Aroma of smoky ham and cereal grains, maybe oats. Flavors of mocha, chewy something, with a bit of chalk and a faint hint of dried fruit. For most of the time the beer is on the palate it vacillates between sweet and smoky, back and forth. Tremendous.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black beer with a generous foamy dark head and lots of bubbles.
Smell is lots of smoke and bbq meat, some leather, subtle hints of hop, bit of sharp lemon. Bit of roasted nuts. Salty, with some creamy chocolate.
Taste is creamy oily watery bitterness, beautifully balanced. Smoke and meat are a little bit less present with a bit more chocolate and some coffee. Nice fizz, touch of ash, resin. Full mouthfeel and full finish with a light astringence.

Between a porter and a smoked beer, I can find better specimens, which are not as herbal as this one. Interesting, but the heavy herbal tones on the flavour put me off.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 Btl pours deep dark opaque brown color, huge fluffy tan head that disappears quickly leaving no lace. Aromas of, burnt wood,charcoal, earth and the inside of a meat smoker. Tastes of campfire smoke,dark chocolate,sweet caramel and earth. Medium body, creamy, soft mouthfeel, a tad under carbonated , and a finish that puts a twang on the tip of your tongue. The smoke stays in your mouth long after the beer is gone! This is my first smoked beer. I felt the intense smokiness was a little overwhelming. I thought a year of aging would mellow the flavors out a bit but they still were pretty bold. It was good but not great.
