2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown and bubbly. The head was a bunch of bubbles that only formed into a head for a few seconds.
Smells like smoke, lots of it. Exactly like a raunchier. There is also the smell of black olives.
It tastes smokey too. Also roasted malt and bacon.
Lots of carbonation, light body and stickiness to the texture.
I like the smokey smell and taste, but the other tastes and texture are just not fitting together for me. Worth trying if only for its uniqueness.

Fles gedronken bij joes, plaatjes op de fles doen me denken aan eigen tekeningen van toen ik kleiner was, bruine/rode kleur, ruikt heel erg naar gerookte spek en zout, smaakt ook zo, mij een beetje te, maar het heeft wel iets

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Dark brown almost black body with 2 fingers of fluffy tan head.
S - Toasted leather, dark malts, smoked peat, sorghum, liquid smoke, iron minerals, strange herb perfume aroma, hickory wood chips.
T - Watered down liquid smoke, roasted malts, toasted sugars, unknown fruit character barely sneaks out among the savory smoked meat flavor. Hints of cocoa and muted coffee bean. Finishes sweet with slight hop bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation.
Interesting twist on the style. The smoke character is bold, and has a good amount of sweetness to balance. I only noticed the black tea on the aftertaste. Try it for something different.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crazy powerful aroma of malt, plums, dates. Taste is just much too sweet for me, very syrupy. Left Hand sure knows how to make flavorful beers, this one just isnít my style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown with medium large beige head. Aroma is pretty nice, smoky malt and tea, herbs and chocolate. Medium body. No alcohol. Flavor is on the sweet side with smoky malt and beef jerky background. A little syrupy but mostly drinkable. Interesting if not entirely successful.
