Black pour, small off white head. Aroma is obviously smoky, earthy, lots of wood, hints of coffee, and some bitter cocoa powder. Mouth feel is thin, like I would expect from a lagered ale, with a soft carb. The finish is more woody smoke, notes of bacon come through with more earthy barrel and campfire. Low to medium bitterness and some soy in the end.

APPEARANCE- black beauty. Light head, little lacing. NOSE- great balance of smoke scent. You smell something, but are not sure what it is, then when you recognize it’s smoke, its very light and then there’s no question that it?s smoke. FLAVOR- starts out lightly smoky, and builds as you continue to sip it, or as it warms up perhaps. NOTES- definitely best smoke beer I?ve tried.

Scipio (838) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Pours black with a very minimal khaki head. There is a heavy smoky aroma that is complimented with coffee, licorice, chocolate, and hints of alcohol. The taste is focused more on chocolate, with some undertones of and alcohol, smoke, and earthy malts. Aftertaste is light, though it lasts a bit, and is a woody smoke. This one is medium in body, has a texture that feels a bit flat, and has softer carbonation. For a style I usually enjoy, I have to say I’m disappointed. I expected more.

Hey look! I haven’t rated "Smoke" yet!
Pours a very deep crimson, without bright lights the sucka looks black. It’s got a tan head that is tight, medium sized and well retained. The lacing is nice. Grate lookin’ bier mydudes!
The aroma is rich and smoky evoking smoked meats for sure, some sorta sweet glazed ham or something. It’s got some nice vanilla and woodiness to it too. Generally speaking it’s real sweet smelling but I think given the sort of woody on smoky nose, that sweetness is a positive thing here.

The flavor is really truly a delicious practice in balance. It’s smoky for sure, it’s quite rich, ashy, and chocolaty. The roasty bitterness and light fruity character are the deviations that are best employed for balance here. As the beer warms both the vanilla like sweetness and wood come more and more forward, but so does some of the roasty bitterness.

So often with smoked beers caution is thrown to the wind in the pursuit of smoked malt goodness... I love beers like that, but I also love this beer for transcending that.
