3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-amber pour mounted by a lacing white head. A spicy (mint) and fruity, bready nose, supremely clean and diplomatic. Herbal weeds remind of a shaken earthy flower field. Gentle spicy hopping keeps the focus on soft herbal character, procuring a gentle drying out finish. The smoke remains more of a hint than a possessing aspect. From most other brewpubs, we’d have called it too subtle, but DDC has a sense of balance that makes it all come through as a session smoked. Light-medium bodied, rather crisp malty body. Short finish appears kinda rye-ish (hemp I guess) and ponctuated with greatly exacted malty notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber body with light carbonation and an average off-white foamy head. Fair malty/hempy aroma with subtle caramel and fruity notes. Nice hoppy taste with woody and smokey hints. It ends with a sharp dry/bitter finish. Pretty well made Smoked.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Minutious smoke lifts from the earth. Alt-like caramel maltiness joins pomegranate fruitiness. Subtle, well-made, not too threatening.
Smoking earth and caramel dew. Tiny, prickly bubbles pinch the palate through the fruity, peachy maltiness. Faint wooden dryness appears in the end. This is so approachable and well-made, it could replace their regular hemp ale, Fumisterie.
