3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to MMansfield for this one.
Paired with a spicy hamburger.
Aroma: Decent malt aroma.
Appearance: Pours a nice dark brown color with a thick 3 finger head.
Flavor: Malt-like character, slightly bitter with a bit of caramel maybe?
Palate: A roasted like aspect permeates the mouthfeel, very inviting. As it warms, becomes a little more sweet.
Overall: Definitely could have a few of these in a row, alcohol is subdued. Solid offering, finished easily & it’s a good flavorful brew, perfect for a winter afternoon.

Slurped one last night, thank goodness for the new taster pack. Hopefully PH will keep mixing it up. Looks like it tastes and smells, earthy translucent mud-brown with a thin off white head. Really smells of light spices, barnyard, horse breath and maple. Taste is much the same with some burnt toffee and roasty malts and very light bittering hops. A mildly syrupy, oily feel with light carbonation makes this a great sipper.

Now most people would probably find this too smokey and horse like, and they would be right. I rather enjoy the smokey flavour. It smells like you are combing a horse in a barn, but in a good way. Not something you would want to drink too much of, but quite interesting brew.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Basically liquid smoke. Pretty clean finish. Pours very dark amber. Smells of smoked peat, light scotch. Good for something different but not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a chestnut brown. Aromas of raisin bread and smoked meat. Similar flavors. The smoke is a bit too prevelant for me.

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.

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.
