Dark ruby brown with a light brow head. Aroma of smoke dark fruit and dark malts. Very smooth smokey dark chocolate w/ cherry and plum taste, with great carbonation. Overall its a very complex beer that was born for cooking and enjoying while cooking or any other time.

Dark brown cherry pour. Mild tan head. Aroma was smokey chocolate, caramel, toffee, licorice, sugary. Flavor starts to show the smoke. All the malty characteristics in the aroma show up but with that smokiness. Sweet clean finish.

Bomber pours dark brown with a big tan head. Not much nose probably because it’s a bit cold. Taste is nice rich burnt malty thickness with a good chunk of smokiness-just right. Some sweetness on the end. Full body. Not much alcohol presence. Good beer.

Pours a hazy brownish amber with a small beige head. Nose has some wood smoke, light earthy chocolate malt, and toast. Flavor is really unique, with a certain woody smokiness I have never tasted in a smoke beer or any other beer before, along with some burnt toast, earthy caramel, and a bitter dryness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hay Merchant. Aroma is toasted malt and smoke. Taste is an excellent balance of sweet, bitter and savory notes -- about my only complaint is could actually be a little smokier!
