3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can from HeffIAm. Poured a thicker dark chocolate brown with a very small tiny light beige head. Aroma of light smoke, sweet chocolate, glue and medium toast. Bigger body, chewy, average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma but a bit more of a smoked chocolate flavor over darker toast, okay so a bit different. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a hazy brown-gold with a high, pillowy, lacy off-white head. Nose is smoke, lemon, and bready notes -- there’s a little light rye in there, too. Sweet and smoky up front; the smoke has both a savory and an ashy note to it. There’s a definite charcuterie or barbecue thing going on, along with bitterness further back on the tongue. Finish turns completely dry and ashy with a terse smokiness to it, though there’s a faint malty echo. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smell of nice smoke. Appearance is brown with thin off white head. Taste is smoke grain which finishes too quick, I wish it had a little more but pretty solid for a smoked style.

5/30/2014. 16 oz can. Copper color with an offwhite head. Malty aromas with caramel, light fruit and hints of bacon/smoke. Sweet malty flavors with smoke really picking up on the finish. Nice balance and not too overwhelming.
