3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jet black colour with a tan head. Hickory and slight smoke aroma, although muted, and has a malted backbone and roast. More hickory on the palate, medium bodied, and has a fast finish. a little bit disappointing and light brew, especially for the style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad ale. The smoke isn’t all that apparent but what little is there isn’t bad. Evenly balanced mix of caramel and slight bitterness. Easily drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark dark amber-brown. Aroma of licorice and very muted smokyness, roasted malt. Okay... Disappointed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at C’est What. Pours a clear slightly reddish dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma has a huge blast of liquorice - hard to get much beyond that but there’s some roasty malt. Flavour is also big on the liquorice with some roasty, woody character. Woodiness lingers in the finish. A little thinner than I might have liked. Interesting but not something I’d revisit regularly.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like a nice single malt. Muddled brown colour. Very strong smoky flavour with a touch of spice. Very unique beer! Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A reddish copper ale with a thin moka head. Predominating butterscotch aroma, with herbal notes, wood extract in finale. In mouth, a good smokyness with fusel, wood extract, sweet caramel malt, a bit thin but good. On tap at C’est What, May 21 2011.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on draught on May 5, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent dark reddish-brown with a thin tad head, and absolutely no lacing. The aroma was sweet malt, some smoke, and some nutty hints. The aroma was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, coffee, smoked wood, and a slightly sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is assertively smoked with a nice hickory smoke aroma over a rich, but well-attenuated malt base. A little bit of crackery flavour on the back as well. Softly spicy on the finish with just a kiss of light fruit as well. It’s pretty nice really. Sessionable and fairly nice stuff.
