3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear deep amber color with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, and fairly mild touch of smoke. Taste of roasted malt, nuts with fairly mild smokiness. Mild bitterness with bit of a burnt malt aftertaste. Moderate body, smooth and a bit light on flavor. Not a fan of Smoked Ales, but at least this didn’t taste of ashtray ,like some do.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer doesn’t pour like you would expect a smoked ale to do, for it is slightly hazy auburn color with a large off-white head. The aroma is also a little weird for the smoke doesn’t come until the end; before that, it is strongly like dough yeast. The taste is mildly sour and slightly umami, and the smoke only appears in the finish; furthermore, the medium body, thin texture, and soft carbonation do nice things to your tongue despite the disappointing flavor

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Comes out of the bottle a clear tawny brown with a thick buff head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of smoked bacon. Flavor does not quite echo the aroma, being malty and just a tad sweet but barely smoky and lacking depth. Bland texture has only average fizz and thickness. Only so-so, but still palatable. Good for a party.

Bottle thanks to mora2000. Poured a golden/orange color with an attractive white top. Taste of smoke, BBQ and caramel malts. Watery on the palate.

Pours a copper color with red highlights . Foamy white head that shrinks quickly. Smokey smell like campfire with a savory quality of smoked meat. Taste is smokey malt with slight bitter quality. Mouthfeel is slightly slick with lots of carbonation. A little goes a long way. Would be better while eating BBQ or smoked meat.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Certainly more style than taste. Smoky aroma, smoky palate, nice clear dark chestnut color. Medium head, light lacing.
Taste?...Obviously, they don’t call it "smoked" for nothin’. I find these smoked beers to be a bit gimmicky. It’s fun for a beer, possibly two, but you couldn’t drink these with any regularity.
It’s like bacon and beer had a child.
