4oz draft at the brewpub. This beer was the highlight of the best place I visited on my trip to Seattle. This was just as it was supposed to be. Big sweet smokey nose combined with sweet maple and pulled off beautifully. Its like smoked maple syrup, sweet but not sugary. Loved drinking this beer.

Deep amber, lightly brassy, ring of head.Smoky meaty nose. Beef jerky flavor. Ok, but a bit heavy-handed on the meat aspect.

Big sweet smokey nose. Lots of maple sweetness. Combined with the smoked malts it smells almost baconey. Nice nose. Pours amber, thin head. Big smokey flavors, sweet maple, salty smoke. Chewy with nice sweetness. Meaty. Smooth lingering smoke and balancing sweetness. Really good smoked beer.
