Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
From a 355ml bottle on 20/7/2014. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a strong and quite pleasant smoky aroma, but with less bacon than you often get with smoked brews. The smoke is relatively subtle in the mouth but compliments sweet chocolate, a touch of dark fruit and spice, and a nice roasty lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a really impressive, cohesive brew and definitely one of the best smoked beers I’ve had. Lovely stuff.

nearbeer (3722) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2014
650 ml. I’ve consistently ignored this one on the shelf for nearly a year because I thought it was an alias of the same brewery’s similarly labeled Stubborn Jack, and because most of their non-smoked stuff has been unimpressive. Pours nearly opaque chocolate with a lasting disc of foam. Just a hint of smoke on the nose mixed with espresso, cocoa and caramel. Taste is caramel cola, dark toasted bread, and a small but increasingly noticeable flavor of smoke. Medium body is smooth with a low level of carbonation and tends to the sweet side, but the smoke rescues it from cloying. A fine example of how a bit of smoked malt can make an underlying mediocre beer interesting.
