Very well balanced. Great smokey flavours, chewy malt. Very long finish. So smooth you’d swear it was a lager, but it is top fermented.

Yet another interesting take by these guys.
Pour is a beautiful mahogany colour with a trace of fizz that disappears quickly. Nose is heavy smoke, wood, sweet fruit, caramel and a bit of earth. Taste is sweet malt at first, then the smoke sort of wafts in and lingers through the end. There’s a pleasant hint of bitter dryness on the finish, too.
Definitely not a session beer, but damn drinkable on a crisp fall night.

Pours a clear reddish copper with a small dull white head and some lace. Aroma is peat, smoke and earthy. Flavour is peat, smoke, mild malty sweetness, faint bitterness and some earthy note. Alright well I love peat and smoked malt beers so I’m definitely a fan.

Very smoky and meaty aroma, unfortunately it reminded me a lot of the wet all meat purina kitty chow I give my cats sometimes as a treat. Taste was a lot better than the smell. Nice smoky malty flavour.

4th October 2014
Clear bright red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Mild minerals. Thin malts, a little lactose like sweetness. Contrasting smoke, mild and not acrid. Touch of dried fruits and even a whisper of sour fruits before a semi dry finish. Fairly well joined up if a tad too dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle pours a medium amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is smoke and hints of caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness underneath a modest smoke with a grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nicely done smoked beer that is well balanced and not overdone.
