Copper color. Ashey/smokey aroma with notes of wood and malt. Body is thin with good smokey flavors and sweet malt. Finish is lightly hoppy. An average example, but nice work by this brewery to try something new.

Smokey but not to much like some smoked beers are. I liked. It was drinkable, brownish beer wit neat head.

Certainly smells smokey, almost meaty. Deep chocolate colour, creamy toffee head. Smoke, peat, and smoked sausage flavour, with burnt malt. A bit watery. An interesting addition for Church Key. Interesting!
