Tap. Clear reddish amber body with a thin ring of beige head. The nose is nicely smoky with campfire goodness and a sweet caramel and toffee maltiness. The flavor is really nice as far as the smoke goes, plenty in here, slightly sweet caramel and toasted malt base. Lingering sweet and smoky finish. Medium bodied, mouth coating with a bit of stickiness on the finish. Nice stuff.
