pours a clear amber with an offwhite head. notes of rye, caramel, floral hops, herbs. Didn’t get much smoked notes out of this. this was okay, but not particularly exciting.

Sample at the brewpub. Pour is clear brown with off white head that does not last. Has a subtle smoky aroma. Has a medium mouthfeel. Flavor is smoke. It dominates upfront and lingers on the finish. Overall a good representation of the style. Just not my favorite.
