7/18/2012. On tap at the brewery. Red-brown with a tan head. Malty aromas with hints of smoke. Good balance between malt, fruit and the smokiness. Not bad at all.

Draught at the Pilsner Room in Portland. Deep reddish brown, cloudy, with a thick, low head. Pretty. Nose of chocolate malt, smoke, bacon, full malt. Sweet toffee flavor, lightly smoked, with chocolate and very earthy hops. Light cherry tang as well. Full, smooth body. Bitter finish. Tasty.
