pitch black with a mild tan head. thick moutfeel and low carbontion. smokey nose, flavor of initial dark malts with a large smokeiness coming through followed by some chocolate notes. tough to drink due to smokiness but a great complex flavor

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 Iíve ever had.

Iím not a fan of smoke beer but this was pretty good. Bottle, Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is smoke right up front with some coffee and caramel. Taste is mildly smokey. This would be a good introductory smoke beer.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 ABV: 8.2%. StFun supplied from his cellar giveaway. Many thanks! Tried on my pre-birthday bash (..."a very merry unbirthday... to me? TO YOU!"). To snifter it pours a dark purplish brown with virtually zero head at all, just bubbles and a thin line of foam is the only thing which seems to stop someone from asking if this is indeed a beer. Has some decent lace, however. Aromas of fudge, caramelized raisins, brown sugar, peanut brittle, and a faint yet unmistakeable ash characteristic. Canít smell too much oak, however. Tastes bittersweet and earthy with notes of grape skins, liquid coffee, black olives, American yeast, smoke and stale Pepsi. Licorice, hops, and soil by swallow. Very thin but slushes around nicely in your mouth. Interesting. Not the best Iíve had from Surly. I had such high hopes.

Rate #997. Bomber from trade to glass. Unique beer that got better as it warmed and the more I drank. Slightest of smoke in aroma slight dark fruits and a couple other I couldnít quite identify. Mouthfeel was a 4. Nice carbonation. Different type of hop slight bitter finish. Taste is aroma and a little bit of roast. Good not great

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.

Black with no head. Super smokey aroma with some malt. Taste is sweet with tons of smoke. Something about the combination of sweetness with smoke really disgusted me. If the beer was drier I would have totally dug the smoke flavor but with this weird sweetness I canít take it.
