2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not my favorite SN brew. Had this at the SN Restaurant with a burger the other day. Pour was dark caramel with very minimal head but decent lacing. Lacked body as it had a watery mouthfeel and could have used some more carbonation. Smokey aroma and taste which was "different" but good. Worth a try to say the least, but there are other SN’s better.

Blind Tiger Big Beer Festival 2003. Clear brown colour, smokey aroma. Smokey, nutty choc-malt flavours though it felt a little too thin to hold the considerable smoke presence, probably 'cause it was served too cold.

Very good. The smoke is definitly noticeable in the flavor. It has a chesnut flavor that rests on the palate outstanding.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 An interesting beer to say the least. A dark amber colored lager with a hint of malt and hops in the aroma. The taste is somewhat dry with a hint of smoke. Worth the trip to Chico.
