Dark amber. Pour. Smell and flavor are pork. Flavor is also way too smokey and bitter. Not good at all. Not drinkable.

Half later [sp?] bottle, tasted during RBWG15. Clear red amber color. Thin khaki head. Leaves good thicker lace. Medium body, good full feel. Smooth kind of creamy texture, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Nice smoke, mild caramel, light spiciness. Moderate sweet, light savory, light bitterness. Nice smoked ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Dark copper, almost maple taffee colour. 1/2" head that lasted a couple minutes. Very distinct rings as the volume went down.
Smell: Smoked malt and caramel
Taste: Smoke and caramel
Feel: Acidity and carbonation cut through the smoke. Quite long and not unpleasant.
Overall; My first smoked beer. I didn’t think I would like it, but I did.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ RBWG on the Brewbus. Thanks to whoever shared this! Medium amber pour with a small white head. Mellow smokiness. Nice light bread, honey and stewed pears. Flavor is a touch papery, shows some age. Smoke accents supporting a surprisingly light, nimble spring fruit flavor. Honey. Bready malt. Light body, soft carb. Decent, but a bit let down by the oxidized character.

Certainly woody and smoky but still had a nice touch of malt. Easier to drink than other smoke beers (which I am not a fan of to begin with)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet roasty malts, highly smoked grains, caramel and cask wood. Taste is rich sweet malts, caramel and light rye. Finishes with slight funkiness and tartiness but well rounded overall. Appearance is a clear amber body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark copper colour with head to the bottom and nice lace. Taste is smoked meat and spices, where they aiming for a Montreall smoked meat sandwich? Not heavy on the smoke like some of the German styles. Might even be sessionable.
