Dark brown with a large beige head. Good lacing. Roasted malts in the nose, with notes of coffee and chocolate. The smokiness come up straight at the first sip, in a well balanced mouthful of roasted malts, caramel and hops. Bitter finish with a smokey after taste. Quite good.

Not much head on a dark brown body. Body quite light, smooth and nicely carbonated. Aroma is smoky, woody, plus coffee and milk chocolate. In the mouth there’s plenty of caramel from the malts - almost coca cola. Darker roasted malts also present, dark berries and smoke. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival on the 21st April 2016. Cask, gravity dispense. Dark ruby in colour with a thin white head. Malty aroma with a note of wood smoke on the short nose. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give a maltloaf base with roast grain, liquorice, treacle and oak cask notes. Strong hop presence gives an earthy flavour to the short but solid bitter aftertaste with no astringency. Finish is malty and dry with treacle toffee and woodsmoke evident on the palate. An ok session Smoked Ale.
