Excellent. I’m not big on smoked beers but this one is light and gets the balance close to my liking.

Not a fan. Nice smoke flavor with lingering sweetness, but it gives way to a chemically bitterness.

Hazy dark copper pour with nice off white head. Aroma is light smoke, caramel, spicy and grassy hops. Taste follows the nose with caramel being more prominent than the hops. Subtle smoky flavor. Pretty 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.
