3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Tap n Handle. Pours black with a light brown head that lingers and laces the glass with rings. Smells smoky, spicy, malty, like whiskey and like wood/campfire. Medium plus body with an oily texture. A smoked and spiced flavor that hides the alcohol well. Toasty and caramel malts with a touch of vanilla balance it out, pretty smooth overall. Of the very few smoked beers I’ve tried, this one is my favorite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is lightly smoked, dark malt, oak. Tons of flavour and really well integrated flavours from the spicy rye, barrels, smoke, and dark malts. Alcohol is noticeable but not burning for 13%. Really nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich sable with a thick, though effervescent, dark tan head. Aroma has a strong woody whisky overtone, plus notes of roast malt and molasses and a hint of horehound. Smoky wood dominates the flavor, backed up by malty, rye, molasses and miso tones. Viscous, oily texture has a strong fizz and leaves a smoky, woody, earthy finish. I’m confident that you "wood" love this one!

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft pour at Bambinos. Pours near black with a boozy, caramel, almost off putting aroma, but with the high abv, it grows on you. That being said, unbelievably smooth flavor. Love this beer, and very unique too. Dark fruit and slight cherry flavor with a nice wood chip smokey background. Really nice, smokey strong beer without the boozy flavor. Such a good beer here. Very impressed.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 13% bottle into a snifter black with a beige head.
Aroma is straight up rye whiskey booze. Slight smoke.
Flavor is sweet molasses. Faint smoke is not distracting from the slam of rye whiskey. Vanilla there. Spice is minimal. Burn to the throat finish.
Soy sauce thick on the palate.
Laying down 3 bottles for future reference. This is a "holy shit" brew!
