3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz Bottle, purchased at Provisions - Northampton, MA. Vaporizing toasted bread aroma, with some herbal oak-y qualitites. The maltiness in this beer is very nice. Toasty and bright, kind of like a stout without the roasted barley. There’s a polished calvados-like edge to the finishing warmth that adds an air of refinement. The downer for me is that harsh ashy edge that the peated malt gives the whole overall profile. That malt doesn’t belong in any beer, in my opinion, and reminds me of old cigar ash, leaving an acerbic, dry bite on the tongue. And the biggest bummer is that you wouldn’t think, hey Smoked beer, you just get this grimy, industrial smear on the roof of your mouth, which isn’t exactly pleasant. This is a somewhat sad experience, because I’ve been waiting so long to have this beer and think so highly of Smuttynose that this was quite a downer.

Rätt sådär. Lättmaltig alkoholsmaken skiner igenom. Sådär inget särskilt speciellt

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A dense, fingerthick beige head forms over an almost clear dark amber colored body. Microfloaties. The aroma is mostly on the malty side, with dried fruits and caramel. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a pleasant carbonation level. Dry. Caramel maltyness, some dried fruits and a decent bitterness in the flavor. Lasting finish. Nothing impressive going on here, but a decent beer it is anyway. Lacks a bit on the sweetness. 140301
