COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Wood Smoked Malt and English Golden Naked Oats give this beer a truly unique flavor. Slight smokiness pairs well with the nuttiness from the oats and great flavor from German Chocolate Wheat Malt. A great beer to pair with BBQ, fish, or any hearty meal!

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
A lightly hazed amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with light grassy hops, OK. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light peated notes, grassy hops, not bad.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pint at the brewery. Pours hazy amber. I could use more smoke in the aroma, but the fruity cherry smoke that is present is very nice. Malts are very biscuity which plays well with the smoke. There are even hints at coffee in the finish. Sessionable and enjoyable, just needs more smoke.

emacgee (3873) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Clean amber brown pour with a thin white head. Rich smoky/meaty nose with a light grainy sweetness. Smoky and malty notes in the flavor. Lightly sweet on the finish. Very nice.

bubbleflubber (1709) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hickory Hops 2013 - Amber pour with a wispy head. The nose is of cherry malt. Easy drinking, light toasted malt with cherry essence and other citrus accents. Clean finish, just a hint of smoked bitters. Light body and refreshing. Nothing overtly complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a fairly small head. Nose is fairly smokey, but not so overpowering that you think you’re about to drink liquid smoke. Taste is actually light and clean, and you can get just a hint of that nuttiness coming through. This might be new favorite smoked beer.

freekyp (1462) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2013
An interesting pour, Triple C’s Amber melds light smokiness with a fruity profile resulting in a very drinkable combs that is better than the sum of its parts. Pours a light brown with a small white ring of head. Well balanced with a light malt sweetness twinged with smoke rides out a slow long finish. Nice an very sessionable.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Growler at beer study, thanks Jd. Cloudy opaque amber with thin off white lace. Nose is fruity upfront, minuscule smoke (only cuz I’m looking for it). Flavor shows the smoke a little better, light smoked ham, toffee, smoked meaty finish. This grew on me and I enjoyed it.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Draft at the source. Hazy dark amber color, small white edge head. Aroma of burnt toast. Taste is burnt caramel with a smokey edge. Better than your average amber.

On draft at the brewery’s taproom. I am just starting to really be into smoked beers. I used to think it was weird to taste smoke, now I love it. This beer has a perfect balance between the base beer and the smoke aspect. Not too smokey, just right. I didn’t get a whole lot of smoke in the smell but the smoke sort of builds on the palate as you slowly kill the pint. I really enjoyed this beer.
