hopscotch (9053) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle… Pours a murky dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is of dark chocolate, espresso and charcoal with a somewhat reserved campfire-smoke component. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Sweet, nutty, chocolaty, light smoke flavor with a splash of deep roast coffee. Sweet mocha finish with a rumor of smoke at the wee end.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2010
Thanks to nbutler! Dark brown pour, nice tan head. Light bacon, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes and some toffee in the aroma. Flavor has some smoke, but not overly insane amount. Good chocolate and roasted malt too. Very well done beer. One of my favorite smoked beers to date.

adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle @ Granny’s house in Exira, Iowa. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Huge smoky nose as soon as you open the bottle. Burnt dark malts in nose also. Dark, burnt, roasted, smoky, malty flavor. Fairly easy drinking while still having the smoked, charred tasted. Slight oak flavor also. Good.
