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.

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
