3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 4/25/13 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours cola brown with a thin off-white head that quickly disappears. The nose is full of smoke with a nice amount of dark caramel malt. The flavor is a bit sweeter than I generally like this style, with tons of smoked malt and a touch of roast. The body is full with an almost syrupy texture, light carbonation, and a long smoked finish with a very interesting touch of black peppercorn.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flat dark brown pour. Not much of a head. I even forced it. Little bit of lacing. Smells like a malty doppelbock with a bit of smoke in the background. Tastes malty, with some raisin notes and a bit of smoke in the background. Sweet finish. Not bad.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a clear deep caramel brown color with a small and rapidly diminishing off white head. The aroma was meaty smoked malts, moderately sweet malt, hint of earth. The flavor was more meaty smoke, dark caramel and some woody notes. Fairly smooth.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is by far one of the worst brews Iíve had out of all the Huntsville Guys. They went out with a thud on the liberation series. Starters aroma very very mild smokey aroma otherwise sweetness faint mainly nothing. There was no head at all even during the pour. Taste is way to sweet, with a light flavor of liquid smoke. To thick on mouth feel as if this did not ferment the whole way. Iíve made brews like this... they got poured out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by brew3crew. Clear red / brown color. Thin-to-minimal bubbly khaki head. Little dots of lace. Smoke evident in the nose, some vegetable. Bigger body, smooth light carbonation. Viscous, but more dry in the finish. Nice big smokey flavor in the taste. Good savory. Little dark fruit, caramel malts. Itís got nothing on Aechtís (this is more vegetal and rich), but still pretty nice

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to snifter (thanks brew3crew). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid; smoke and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
