phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! October 2012 vintage. Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. Notes of smoke, peat, chocolate, bacon, earth, and dark fruit. Good depth to the smoke character, without being overpowering. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a smoky mouthfeel. Nice beer.

22oz bottle, thanks to radarsock. Shared with the local group. Very dark brown color. Thin off-white / somewhat tan head. Decent spread of lace. Very nice smokey nose... No mistake, this is a smoke-beer. Good smooth softer carbonation. Light roast, little chocolate. Mostly just smokey. Some savory taste, lightly sweet, little bitter. medium body. Soft, lighter carbonation. More dry overall. Solid smoked lager. Interesting stuff. Nicest smoked lager I’ve had since schlenkerla helles, but with more of a light roast, light chocolate note to it

Bomber to taster (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a murky dark brown with off-white lacing. Smells of smoke and dark malt. Tastes like it smells, only better, with ham notes. Average on the palate. A solid smoked beer.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Dark brown pour from the bottle. Small fizzy beige head. Aroma is ash, bitter chocolate, smoke, and light peatiness. Flavor is burnt chocolate, smokey wood, peat, a touch of earthiness to the finish.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Smoke, roast, and a little funk in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty with a hefty dose of smoke. Ordinarily smoked is not my favorite style, but I really liked this.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at Beervana - Cranston, RI. Aroma is a tough, terse smoke, heading into ash and tar land. The flavors are coase up front. The peated malts show strongly, creating an ashy, cigar-like forest fire sensation. The black malts pick up some of the slack and the lagering smoothes it out, but the 30% peated malt is overbearingly acrid.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2012
I love mayflower and their seasonal beer but now I get to see what they make when taking the gloves off and trying something out of the box. 22oz bottle enjoyed into a lager glass. A very dark brown beer with a high bubbly head. Smells of honey and barbaque charcoal . Taste is fairly light chocolate malt and little smoke. Finishes fairly dry with just a bit of bitter in the end. Lively carbonation. Recommended brew.

Pours dark mahogany into a Sam glass. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sweet dark caramel and smoke aromas. Dark smoky chocolate upfront turning to a sweet middle before the dry, earthy finish
