4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Very nice, the smoke is prominent, but balanced by a nice malty character.

Smokey aroma. Smokey flavor. Unfortunately, both are of a liquid smoke variety instead of a good campfire.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Armoma is smokey, yet quite smooth. Dark as sin, almost no head on it. Taste smoke and water, a very thin beer. Not something to seek out but enough to try if given the means

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dragonmead Brewery. Very encouraging smoky aroma. Pours relatively dark. Has a smoky taste, but is somewhat of a letdown as its not very full bodied and seems a bit watered down.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Dragonmead. Pale amber pour. The nose is really nicely smokey. A little bit of light saltiness with a fairly clean malt character. The beer is moderately smokey flavoured with an insistent smoked character on the back of the palate as well. Fairly clean if a little bit sweet. Quite carbonic tasting but the beer is pretty decent really.

Tap @ Dragonmead - arouma is grilled bbq and bacon. Caramel and toffee base. Lots of woody smoke, not much hops. They actually do this one decently.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 The aroma was awesome, smoky like lapsang souchong tea. Very subtle smoke and mild malt flavor. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dark brown appearance, nearly no foam, no lace. Overall, nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown with a white head. Aroma of smoked meat and peat. Flavor of salty, smoked meats although it gets sweeter as you progress through the glass. A pretty decent smoked but certainly on the sweet side.
