3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Pig Minds. Brown body, respectable beige head. Smoky caramel toffee aroma. Rather mild, almost undercarbonated. Dry on the palate, maybe a touch of roastiness. Very smoke forward, the body is a little hollow though, doesn’t back it up much. Fresh vibrant flavors nonetheless. OK. Sessionable and clean.

At the brewpub. Malty smooth with some smoke but not like drinking a campfire. Peat flavors as well. Nice. Serving: Tap

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived black with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of mild smoked peat and chocolate. What a great combination! The flavor is the same great marriage of smoked peat and chocolate. Smooth on the palate and very well rounded. Mild bitterness at the finish. A delicious and excellent ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, pours a clear dark brown with a thin white headm, the aroma has a good amount of caramel and fruit notes, kind of like the Ester, the flavor has a ton of malt and caramel with a nice big sweet finish, the abv shows in the finish some, really not my style but still well done. I don’t think I’ve had a bad beer from these guys, nice.
