3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2/19/2011: NABC ConeSmoker Ale... Aroma: Pacific Northwestern-Style aroma - caramel maltiness with pine/resin and sugary grapefruit hoppiness. Appearance: Cloudy amber color; dense ivory to beige-colored crown. Flavor: Smoky with a nice hop profile; caramel malt with a respectable bitterness. Palate: Body is medium-light to medium; average mouthfeel. Overall: I think that this is probably the first hoppy smoked beer that I have had... This beer must be what a Smoked Pacific Northwestern-Style Red IPA would taste like!
Draught sample (7% ABV; 60 IBU) at New Albanian Brewing Company in New Albany, IN. Rating #39 for this beer.

I think these people make great beer, but wow! This beer is all smoke in the nose and flavor. It has a great apperance but the smoke will ruin your palate. Stone only thinks they make ruination.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden amber with an off white head. Aroma is smoky wood and not much else. Flavor is almost all smoke, with a little bit of light malt. Not bad, but almost cloying, artificial smoke flavor is not my favorite.

Poured dark hazy brown color with average off-white fizzy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted and small smoke aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium smokeybittersweet flavor with a medium roasted smoke finish of moderate duration.
Solid drinkable brew and standout for smoked style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rich Os. Hazy pour that i lighter color than expected. I am still not really into this style. This was good, but I have not grown fully accustomed to the smoked meat quality of smoked beers. Nice and balanced though. All the smokiness is in the flavor. Hardly any in the aroma.
