Amber to brown with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is a little musty and sweet with notes of smoke. Flavor is a little overly sweet with a touch of smoke and a light body. Not as bad as some are saying, but not excellent. Decent with smoky food off the grill. Wife: 2.8

Rich ruby-tinted caramel coloured body with a very thin, just oily tan head atop the beer. Aroma of smoked malt, rich bacon, earth, caramel and figs - deeply smoked with a pungent meat and mushroom kick. Medium-bodied; Deeply earthy and very meaty smoked flavour with bacon, pork, caramel and especially cereal and grain flavours throughout. Aftertaste has that very cereal and grain flavour coupled with some bacon and smoked meat flavour with hints of sweetness and earth rounding out the flavours - interesting for sure and not necessarily great, but flavourful. Overall, a decent smoked beer with a very earthy and meaty flavour and a rich finish. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-November-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-May-2014.

Bottle - Bacony smoke and a yeasty sweetness. Clear caramel with almost no head. Bacon, light sweetness and a long finish. More like a smoked ale vs. wheat.

3/8/14. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring. Mild smokey aroma, malty, bits of caramel, campfire. Lightly sweet flavor, soft wheat, mildly smokey, but not in a bacon way. Not bad, actually.

Very interesting first of all. Had a sample at B-Dubs in Meridian, Mississippi. Aroma of whiskey, smoke, malt. Flavor is alcohol, egg?, smokey malt. Complex. Light body. Really odd but good.

A very interesting beer. I’ve had this on two occasions. People either love smoked beers or veer away from them. They are beginning to grow on me. When I first sipped this, I was unsure, but then as I drank more of it, I really started to appreciate it. Nice to have every once in a while. Good in a rotation of beers you keep around.

Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Clear amber. Smoky aroma, slightly meaty, with mild fruitiness and a bit of caramel. Sweetish flavor, malty and caramelly, with nice smokiness, meaty and slightly ashy. Medium-bodied. Decent.

FROM NOTES: June 27,’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. HOLY SMOKE BOMB!!! Sweet nose with faint notes of apricots and figs, and a sharp roasted note as well. Has a startling astringent flavor that is extremely confusing. A fairly sweet and malty taste overall. The overall texture is on the thick side of medium-bodied, with a lasting astringent quality. One was PLENTY for me, but I’m not wild about the style.
