3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Pikkulintu Helsinki)
Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, there’s no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but it’s not out of place. I lov Menno’s brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on May 30, 2012, best within 4 years so still within the window. Picked up two months ago at State Line Liquors. Slow gusher. Black with an excessive amount of light tan head like you would find on an over-carbonated or infected beer. Aromas of big smoke, toasted mesquite wood, metallic notes, a little dark fruit and caramel on the back. Tastes of smoke, toasted wood, some caramel and toffee, malt, some slight dark fruit and a hint of chocolate on the back. Mostly overpowering smoke though. Chili peppers seem to have faded away. Medium-light body with a dry and warm finish. Normally enjoy smoked beers but this was too much.
