phaleslu (6905) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2010
750 ml bottle shared by STLWill- thanks again, Will. Very cool label with thick light gray wax. Pours black, with some hints of brown around the edges and no head. Aroma of hickory-smoked wood, bacon, roasted malts, and dark fruits. The flavor picks up with more smoked wood, bacon, and roasted malts, and along with a lot of chocolate, dark fruits emerge- plums and figs- as well as notes of licorice, earth, and molasses. Not smoked as much as the Alaskan, and also very sweet. Medium-full bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smoky, oily mouthfeel. Some alcohol present. Very cool smoked beer.

marcus (6860) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a tiny beige head and a smoky aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that sticks to the palate, and a dry slightly bitter finish. Great flavor for a lager and the smoke is not overwhelming.

On tap at Stub and Herbs. Poured black with thin brown/tan head, smelled instantly of smoke and nothing else. Tasted much more balanced, with a nice malt start and thick smoky finish. Though not a fan of smoked beer, this one was the best!
