Draft while waiting for the wort to boil at Copper Kettle Brewing in Pittsburgh. Nicely balanced while maintaining a certain crispness on the mouth feel. Here the smokiness is not overwhelming or heavy, just sorta creeps in on the palate at just the right time. Similar to the German smoked beers and very welcome this side of the ocean as all too few of the craft brewers are willing to produce in this neglected family. Cheers for Rogue’s accomplishment.

Clear dark copper. Sweet, pine, and definitely smokey, but not like a typical smoked porter. Would be great w jerkey or fish.

4 oz sample at Rogue Brewers on the Bay yesterday. Pours hazy goldish amber with nice lace. Aroma and taste are all campfire smoke, smoked meats, delicious. Nice smoked beer.

Typically love smoked ales, but this is absolutely no good. nothing pleasant about it at all. Rogue continues to disappoint me...

Light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is smoked malt, reminiscent of smoked meat. Flavor is same as the aroma with a slight sweetness in the finish. Could use a little more body to round out the smoke flavor. Overall, not bad, but I prefer my smoke in a heavier beer.

Cloudy brown color. The head is one-finger in height, creamy and white. The aroma is of smoked malt, and more smoked malt. The taste is of smoked malt with some caramel in the background. The mouthfeel is a little lighter than medium bodied, with a lot of carbonation.

Pint on tap at Peles in Jacksonville. Clear orange-amber beer with small white head. Aroma of smoke with light notes of malt, leather, and spice. Flavor is smoke and ash with caramel and a bit of fruit. Smooth medium body and lightly hoppy finish. Very tasty and drinkable smoke ale. 6.2% ABV. Excellent.

Draught @ Rogue Public House, San Francisco, CA

Pours reddish orange with a tiny smooth white head. Aroma has a lot of smoke notes, burnt leather, ash and malts. Taste has notes of leather, smoke and hints of ash and fruits. Finish is slightly hoppy with fruity hints. A bit untypical, but quite tasty smoked ale.
