Rated from old notes. Generally a fan of smoked beers but this one did not do it for me. A flat, lifeless experience. Looks like heavy apple cider, smells like salami, tastes like a mistake.

Poured from a tiny little bottle, thanks to Mike. Very smokey, light malty sweetness, thin bodied, cardboard.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Arturo. Old as hell nip bottle. Chunky dark amber pour with some brown and a bunch of floaters. No head. Smoke, ham, and caramel nose. A bunch of apple as well. Slight raisin sweetness on the tongue. A bunch of smoke, some savory qualities, nuts, and salt. No thanks.

"i ind of liked the smoke flavor, but don’t think i particularly liked the beer behind it. just too harsh, and a little too bitter, with a nut flavor that didn’t go well with the smoke. i’ll pass."

Tastes like an IPA soaked smoked salmon fillet. Yes, it actually tastes like that, and I was okay with that.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Rated on 8-12-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized fizzy tan head that mostly diminished, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and very little lacing. The Aroma is malt, pine hops and smoke. The Taste is semi-sweet, pine hops, mildly smokey, and a very dry finish. The Palate is fizzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer does not taste overly smokey which suits me just fine as I do not like overly smokey tasting beer. This beer is worth trying if one enjoys this beer style.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap, listed as "John’s Locker Stock 15k". Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, light smoked meats, roasted malts. Flavor of roasted sweet malt with light smoke and bitter chocolate in the finish. Starts off a bit sweet but the finish is nice. Pretty good mild smoked beer. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Probably the first Smoked beer I ever had, as it was described to me by the fine folks at Sam’s Quik Shop as "bacon beer." What kind of philistine would not make an immediate purchase? It’s not going to crowd anything from Bamberg from the top rank or anything, but as a modestly tweaked malty beverage (enough peat and caramel here to suggest the base might be a scotch ale), it’s reasonably satisfying.

On tap in Newport. Hazy brown with an off white head. Scent is smoke and roasty. Taste is sweet malts and smoke. Good stuff.
