Thanks to Beerlando for bringing this growler. Aroma is fairly light, reminds me of smoked ham. Flavor is lightly smoked with a little more coffee and/or chocolate in there. Very good.

Muddy dark brown. Lightly smokey nose with some chocolatey/fudgey overtones. Soft body. Fudgey on the palate, with a slight smoke finish.

Shared by beerlando @ Redlight. Nice black liquid with little head. Rich, intensely smoked aroma a la Schlenkerla urbock. Smooth mouthfeel. Slightly thin in finish but in a good way, cleansing the palate and creating desire for more. Excellent smokey goodness. Delicious peat-like smokey character and a simple enough flavor profile to please even those who don’t like rauchbier.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 TAP at the Blue Nile (Minneapolis, MN) on 2.14.09. Pours a dark brown, not as smoky as some (like Left Hand Smoke Jumper). Smells/tastes like campfire with some beef jerky. Excellent.

Growler thanks to Beerlando. Dark brown pour. Smokey malts, not nearly as smokey as I’d expect it to be. Tastes like a sweet, smoked ham. Very cool smooth feel to it. Quality meat.....quality beverage.

Growler courtesy Beerlando. Pours a dark brown color with a black center with a small tan head that leaves some spotty lacing behind. The aroma is nice and shows a good amount of smoked malts and peat with some chocolate and coffee undertones. The flavor is again very chocolaty with some skorched caramel and oaky vanilla adding depth and flavor. The smoked peat and smokey meat are noticeable as well. Dark fruits come through as it warms up and really balances out the smokiness nicely. Medium bodied and very silky mouthfeel with good carbonation adds up to a smooth drinker. Very solid brew and one I am glad I got to try. Thanks Brian.

From tap at Surly brewery on Darkness day. Black color with tan head. Smoky roasted nose with hints of vanilla. Flavor is intense; bonfire smoke, malt, cherry, cocoa, with the right amount of carbonation. An amazing porter.

Definately one of the better Scotch ales I’ve had. Heavier than most, the name hits your first smell right on the head, which by the way is a mild medium tan. Taste a roasted nutty grain that sat downwind from a campfire. The smoke taste is good, certainly not too overpowering, which can be the weakness of some Scotch-ale types.

Draft. pours a black/brown color with a tan head that has moderate retention but very nice lacing. Smells like....bacon. Seriously, it smells like bacon. Nice large smoke smell with a touch of sweet malt. Flavor is very smooth and easy, smoke mixed with chocolate malt. It is thin and easy on the palate. Very easy going down. The smoke flavor is just right, not too in your face like a lot of smoke beers. I could have couple of these no problem. Well done.

[Draft at Duke O’Brien’s] Poured a chestnut / mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, smoke, burnt malts, cocoa, vanilla, wood, bourbon, and dark fruits. Taste of cocoa, smoke, burnt wood, dried fruits, roasted malts, vanilla, and a bit of alcohol in the finish. Faint astringency.
