Pretty good dark colour and faint head. Aroma is malty, smoky. Taste is smooth and light sweet.

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.

Reddish brown color, light tan foamy small head, smoky aroma, slightly bitter burnt coffee flavor, medium carbonation, long finish. A likeable beer.

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.
