Strong scent of smoke and bbq. Pours near black with amber hues. Lighter body than expected but still substantial. Flavours of peaty scotch, caramel, malt and ribs. Great beer for sipping and would definitely buy again

deepeary (396) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
Bomber from the LCBO. Pours a dark reddish mahogany with beige head. Nose is malty, caramel and smoky grain. Taste is much of the same. Smooth, smoke is present but not overwhelming. Roasted malt, caramel, cola. Medium finish. Good stuff.

Not a big fan of the smokey flavour. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but a little overpowering.

Tranquillity (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
Bottled. The body is dark brown, with beige big head. The aroma has some smoke but has more sweet butter flavors. The taste is strong of peat, not as smoky as the German ones but very good. However, the aroma should be better.

Franckg (759) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Arômes de malt caramélisé, léger chocolat, foin brûlé. En bouche, caramel, herbes, pain rôtis, café noir froid. Texture légère. Corps léger. Rien d’extraordinaire et loin d’une scotch ale goûteuse et epaisse.

JakeG (26) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Appearance is a very dark brown with an average frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is pleasantly smoky with caramel malt and hops. Flavour is a lightly acidic combination of smoke, caramel malt, light hops and a touch of scotch that really works.

cattaneopapa (246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
650ml bottle, 6.2 alc./vol. from LCBO, Shops at Don Mills. Pours a dark brown colour with a small lasting tanned head. Smokey aroma, smokey taste. Not as smokey as the German Schlenkerla though. Which is a good thing. Notes of coffee flavor with a medium body and carbonation. Ends with a dry and spicy finish.

Great look, nice brown head that dissapears quickly. Has a nice aroma that accompanies the taste very well... the smokey flavour is nice and doeant linger too long on the palate. Goes well with pizza.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is cola-colored with a medium thin off-white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of smoked malt and chocolate. Medium body with flavors of peat malt, dark chocolate and earthy hops. The finish is smoky with a peaty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
