Bottle, thanks Chase! Opaque black pour. Robust smoky aroma with notes of dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel, with smokiness being the predominant up front flavor that gives way to a robust dark malt backbone.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2011
750 ml brown bottle thanks to CLevar. Pours a virtually black in the glass with a nice looking head. The aroma is smokey but really is more meaty than smokey which is nice. Sausage, dark fruits, liquid salami. Damn I think I’m a sucker for smoked beers. The taste again is very meaty, smokey, more dark fruits, figs, maybe even some chocolate. This is liquid meat in a glass.

fraternie (815) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Rich and creamy, with a strong smokey nose of bacon fat and pepperoni. Sweet black fruits fill out the palate and add contrast along with a candy sugar edge over the malty roasted cocoa underbelly, with complex smoked meat nuances lingering. Layered and multi-dimensional.

vikingguy (800) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Near black with thick foamy brown head. Aroma- touch of smoke along with some slight fruitiness. Taste - sweet malt with caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt and cream. Prominent but not overpowering smoked malt. Nice smoked lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap on darkness day at brewery. Aroma of smoke, some hoppiness comes through. Nice sweetness, bitterness isn’t really there. According to one of the Surly guys, the smoke has mellowed nicely since ABR. Nice beer.

Johnsense (778) - - JUL 17, 2013
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.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2007
The aroma is light. It is pretty light. Not a typical smoked beer. There are no bacon flavors. Roasted malt, chocolate flavor. A medium bodied beer. There was quite a bit of a thick tan head. The beer was very dark. color of used oil. It was a good beer but I was hoping smoked factor would be a little stronger. overall it is a well balanced beer. Pretty strong too.
