Bottle, Thanks Jim! Pours dark ebony with a small tan head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is smoke, roasted malts, tobacco. Flavor is the same, light sweet, little bitterness, light astringence from the oak. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Draft at Surly during RBSG grand tasting. From notes. Loads of roasty malt with a good deal of smoke. This went great with the Pizza Luce dinner. Awesome.

Draught at the Surly Taproom. Sweet chocolate and smoky nose, somewhat phenolic. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Initial is mostly chocolate / mid gets very sweet and the phenolic notes come out again / finishes with a sort of plastic-like chocolate note. Okay. But maybe more smoke would be better.

Dark brown pour at Surly during RBSG. Thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nice mouthfeel, full with ought being viscous. Subtle smoke accentuates the bitterness and wood character. This makes me want BBQ.

Bottle. Black with a tan head. Aroma is roast and sweet malt with light smoky notes. Taste follows suit and adds some umami. Palate is medium with a solid carb. The smoke is nice and light which makes this one more enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour. subdued aroma - smokey, but not overpowering. Lighter smoke allows more of this lagers qualities to shine through - Toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, nuts. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Probably the easiest drinking smoked beer I’ve ever had.
