Aroma is smoke, bread, malts, mild sweetness and a small hint of alcohol. The flavor is smoked malts/pork, mild nuttiness and a mix of sweet and tart in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of smoke, sticky sweet malts, caramel, molasses, dark fruits, brown sugar and some spice. Very dark deep red amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is full bodied with an soft/average level of carbonation. Overall a very sweet smoked brew but flavor and aroma were good. Nice beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at brewery. Clearish ruby copper, with no lasting head. Aroma is of bread dough and sticky caramel, with some lager dustiness and smoked malt. Flavor was much the same--old world smoked maltiness, lagery doughiness, and a subtle caramel undertone. Didn’t really work for me.

Aroma of chocolate, waffle cone, molasses and brown sugar. Appearance is brown with light tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some ham smoke. Palate is lightly fizzy and bubbly. Good, but nothing too wow for me.

Not much head to this one, but it has a great nose. Pours a dark amber with some deep red tones. A great smokiness to it with just a hint of sweetness.
