Pours mahogany in color with minimal head as it was poured from the cask. Obviously some smoke to the beer, but not overwhelmingly smokey. A decent amount of chocolate and a nice roast quality. A touch woody with a bit of peanut butter. The peanut butter, dark chocolate, and vanilla really come through on the palate. There is a decent smokiness, too. Wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did. It does have a little "meatiness" to it, but surprisingly not as much as some other smoked beers.

Cask at the Reserve Society party. Dark brown pour with thin tan head. Tastes like Smoking Wood with the addition of bacon grease. Smoke and bacon prevail. Not as good as the regular Smoking Wood.

Cask at the reserve society party. Dark dark brown pour, thin tan head, which disipates to almost nothing. Smokey, dark sweet malts, earth, lots of meaty, oily bacon, and some barrel character. Syrupy mouthfeel. I enjoyed it, wish I could have more.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Cask at the Reserve Society event. Pours with a black body and a small tan head that fades. Aromas are of smoke, earthy, strong bacon, light whiskey and some melanoidins. Flavors are bacon grease, oily, smokey, whiskey. Lots of bacon flavor for sure. The problem is the mouthfeel on this one seems pretty dead with the bacon oils. Thin and without carbonation. Good idea, but didn’t really work as well as planned.
