GT2 (7896) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Short: A slightly smoked stout with ash and apple problems

Origin: 651mL Size: 6oz Glass: Reidel Razor Stemless Tulip Price: Trade Date: 1/19/14
Long: Bottle thanks to savnac! Pours inky with large, gorgeous red foam. Great retention, fairly rocky. Doesn’t look like second runnings of any beer I’ve seen. Nose is apple sauce, mild smoke, somewhat savory. Taste is smoked, ash, bitter cocoa moving to some thicker chocolate mousse. Still hints of ash/soil. No sugar presence. Smoked character could be more assertive.
Flaws: Apple aroma/acetaldehyde
Remedy:Could be due to oxidation, stressed yeast

1- light smoke, chocolate, roast, no esters and no diacetyl 2- dark brown, tan head 3- molasses, raisin, alcohol 4- med-full body, slight astringency, finishes a bit dry 5- A nicely smoked beer. Many times a smoked beer is over done and tastes like an ashtray. This is very well put together.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a medium tan / brown head. Nose brings out light smoke, oxidation, vegetal notes and cocoa - not very pleasant. Flavour is light on the smoke, with notes of chocolate, vegetal notes, and oxidation. Not very elegant at all, with some off-notes. Not good.

Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a thick black color. Nose is very smokey with some subtle roasting to it. Taste is also pretty heavily smokey and feels heavy, but rather smooth. Seems like it would be great with some barbecue.

Bomber. Pours a dark black color with a small white head. A malty rich smoky nose. A big sweet flavor, burnt caramel, smoked meat, berries, licorice. Quite good. Stout like.

neepsntatties (1114) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle. Colour...very dark brown, to nearly black with a thick tan head. Nose...lightly smoky with bonfire, bacon, cafe au lait and malted milk. Palate...thin, frothy and quite smoky with charred pork, beef jerky and smoked brisket. There’s a sweet barbecue smoke flavour and a tangy BBQ chip flavour at the back of the palate. The smokiness lingers nicely!

Ferris (2035) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle - Smoke, plum, bacon and some molasses and chocolate. Jet black with a thin red/brown head. Lots of chocolate, smoke and some dark fruit. Smoke isn’t as prominent in the flavor as in the nose.
