Bottle pours brown-black with minimal tan head. Nice smoky aroma, you can actually pick out the different wood smoke. Taste does not match, quite smoky but some lactic acid and salt creeping in. Finish acidy/smoky. Palate on the thin side.

Wouldn’t seek out.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
(500ml bottle thanks to BA G311) very dark brown pour, viscous coating of the glass, and a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of raisin, anise, gingerbread, sweet applewood smoke, fudge, smells awesome. Taste of light smoke, raisin, watery chocolate, taste is a bit less impressive than the nose. Watery body, excellent smoked beer.
