Very impressed by this one. Manages to be quite smoky yet balanced and lgiht and drinkable. No clue it was near 10%, i would have guessed 5 or 6. Pours almost black, carbonated, but with little head. Nose and front of the palate are pretty smoky, and give way to a roasty light body with a very clean and quick finish. Definitely worth a try, very unique and very good.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle from tytoanderso - thanks! Pours a brown black with not much head. Aroma is sesame, oak, coffee and smoke. Has a nice smoked pine/oak aroma and nose. Not overkill, and not too little. Finishes clean. Flavor is lightly sweet, but not too sweet at all.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 A great smoked flavor that only Aecht can beat, but all in all just a bit small to miss the higher rankings.

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.

Bottle shared by Mike. Thanks! Pours cola like where its black and you can see through it. Light tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, smoke, and some dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and is really smooth and tasty. Great beer!

Had this on tap at Darkness Day right at the brewery. More smokiness than I expected, but great beer. Just tough to drink it right after Darkness...
