Basically liquid smoke. Pretty clean finish. Pours very dark amber. Smells of smoked peat, light scotch. Good for something different but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1062) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with a small brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of smoke, peat, campfire, nuts and some sweet malts... Caramel like in the background. Taste is an overwhelming amount of peat, campfire, nuts almost burnt like flavors. Body is thin and dominated by peat not much in the way of a malt body on this one or else the use of smoked malts is just to overwhelming.

Pours a chestnut brown. Aromas of raisin bread and smoked meat. Similar flavors. The smoke is a bit too prevelant for me.

dfinney23 (1418) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours auburn brown with a thick peaky head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is smoky, malty, a bit fruity. Taste is smoke, caramel, dark fruit.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. 4.8%. Dark brown/black pour (colour of an irish stout) with a bubbly tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee. Taste is quite sweet at first, malt and toffee, but quite lightbodied. Rather bitter and bland through the finish. Meh.

The nose is nutty and malty with a touch of brown sugar. Watery mouthfeel and tiny bubble carbonation. Starts off on a caramel note and finishes on a smoked aftertaste. Too bad body is too thin and taste too light, because this would be a great Scotch ale... or rauchbier.

rob6239 (580) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
From bottle. Pours dark and clear cola colour with little head. Not much in the way of aroma. Taste has some smoke and peat, but felt watered down slightly. Decent pick.

lotsalaughs (119) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
caramel, bread, smoke, toast, red, brown, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, soft carbonation Ruby/brown pour. Mild carbonation at room temperature. Smoky sweet aroma (almost artificial smoke IMO). Taste is predominantly sweet malt with hint of butterscotch. Almost no bitterness. Sticky mouthfeel and lingering sweet aftertaste. Very low carbonation. Not a bad session pint, but a bit heavy on the sweet side.

shorlin (589) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
Beer pours deep reddish brown, kind of hazy, with very minimal head. Nice smelling beer, a raisin smell, maybe some plum or prune. Taste is good as well, distinctive with sweetness and a repeat of the plummy aroma. Also a nice blend of bitterness in there. Palate is OK, just average. Overall, a nice change from IPAs for a while.

RyanE (118) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
Light brown pour.Thin grey head is pretty much non-existent. Looks almost flat. Fairly complex nose with roasted malt, figs and some smokiness. Dried fruit and some oak on the palate. Nice medium bodied mouth feel. I like this one.
