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.

Dark, clear, orange-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of smoked pork and malt. It tastes like a hop-deficient amber ale and smoke. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Ok.

swoopjones (7008) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2011
draft at Coles, Buffalo, NY. caramel colored pour. Mild smoke in the aroma. Seems like a pretty boring ale with a touch of smoke, a smoked amber. seems like it would be an incredibly boring beer without the smoke, however i like drinking it

Clear dark amber color with a heavy smoke aroma-like a smoldering campfire. Almost exclusive smoke flavor with some hints of meat. If you like smoke, this is a good beer.
