UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 This beer poured a clear gold brown in color with minimal head but had had a very light aroma ... roasty malt, nuts and some smoke - but mild. Flavors are simple ... some brunt fruits, wood and earthy notes and a subtle smoke taste. This has some unique qualities that I really like and recommend people give it a try.

2010 Bottle - Thanks JohnGalt1!!! - Pours a clear copper with a medium off white head...aroma is malty, dried fruit, smoke, slightly sweet, burnt toast...flavour is lightly smoked, cocoa/carob, toffee and sweet malt...perhaps the most subdued DFH brew Iíve tried, not much going on, and what is going on seems a bit disjointed...

A: A very nice looking pour--a crystal clear amber color with a fluffy off-white head on top. S: Not a very intense nose, but a bit of smoke and some sweet toasted malts. A bit of fruitiness to go along with some bread. T: The smokiness of the beer really dominates the flavor, and prevents the full enjoyment of it. After the smoke fades, a slight banana/plantain sweetness comes through on the finish. There is a hint of bready malt and some caramel in there as well. M: A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation. Maybe a bit thin. D: Perhaps a nice idea, and nice of DFH to make this beer for EBF, but not quite what I was hoping for. In any event, Iím glad I got to try it.

Draft @ NotB. Orange golden pour with white head. Smokey notes dominate with some nutty malt, pecan perhaps, and peaty flavor notes. Aroma is mostly smoke.

Pours nice brown with frothy white head. Smells sweet and spicy. Taste rich, nutty, spicy, alcohol taste lingers. Unique aftertaste probably from the pecan/carob/plantain.

Tap during CBC. A nice subtle drinking beer, very dry for a smoked, bit of a nutty finish, some interesting flavors, all subtle, but hard to identify. Didnít really do it for me but I wouldnít turn a pint away.
