8/1/12. On tap at the brewpub. Brown pour with a nice khaki head. Sweet caramel and a hint of milk chocolate in the aroma. A light smokiness peeks its head around the corner. Light chocolate and nuttiness in the flavor with a nice subtle touch of smokiness as well. Balanced and tasty. Nice.

Growler courtesy of blazer06. Cheers, Zack!! Pours a clear amber with a white head. Nose is some caramel malt, some light piney hops, and a nice mild smokiness. Flavor is similar- I am amazed at how well the smoke and caramel malt flavors blend. Caramel, smoke, some light hops, and just a great, slightly smokey beer.

Pours amber. Aroma is roasted malts and a little earthy hops. Taste is mild with a sweet malt backbone. Didn’t really get too much smoke/savory flavor in there. Not bad.
