Growled from CBR. Poured a dark tootsie roll brown body with hint of orange around the edges and lots of clinging carbonation and a foamy beige head. Aroma is loaded with smoked meats, earth some honey BBQ sweetness towards the end. Medium body with average to strong carbonation and an overall watery mouthfeel. Flavor of lighter smoke than the aroma, toast, burnt apples. Good smoked beer, funny I thought this was a porter.

On tap @ sierra from notes. I was pretty excited to try this one, at the time brand new. Pours out a nice deep brown hue, off white head, decent lacing with 2 finger head. Aromas are strongly smokey, some cocoa and roasty bitterness. The palate is a big letdown however, too thin, lacking dimension, just a tad of cocoa and vanilla up front, but it gives way to the smoke flavor way too early. Finish is a bit rough. Meh.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Clear brown pour with light off-white head. Nose is pretty strongly smokey. Flavors are actually more inclined towards the caramel/toffee/nut/roasted malt than smoke...but smoke becomes increasingly strong as the beer warms. As it approches room temperature, the smoke becomes overwhelming. Still I like the concept and enjoy the "liquid-smoky-link" effect.

From the guest taps at Dark Lord Day ’11. I would say smokin oats is an appropriate name for this beer. Some nice smokey wood, roasted malts, and tons of oaty cereal grains in the nose. The pour really looked like a standard oatmeal stout as well. Lighter appearing body, though a thicker, dark cream head, and deep black-brown in color. The feel is smooth and creamy and medium bodied, with a nice texture for easy drinking. Roasted malts through out with not as much bonfire like smoke as other of the style. Oaty grains and cereal malts as well, caramels, and also earth and other light balancing hops. Fairly straight forward over all, but pleasant and quaffable. I enjoyed this.

Draft @ Blind Tiger for Victory event. Dark pour with tan head. Aroma is smoke and toasted malts. Flavor has smoke, roasted, toasted, woody and light chocolate tones.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Draft. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Smokey campfire aroma, with roast, a light sweetness, and light coffee. The flavor is roasty and smokey with a light sweetness. Good stuff.

A little disappointed for a beer from Victory. Light in all aspects. Folder than any domestic swill.

Draft at Kraftwork on 2/17/11. Pours a dark chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly fades into a very thin lasting ring. Minimal lacing. Slightly toasty aroma with lots of sweet malt character especially caramel, rye and toffee. Not as smokey as expected given the name with subtle hints of charcoal and bacon. Smells more like a toasty brown ale. Medium bodied with a smokier profile than the aroma suggests with hints of charcoal, bacon and BBQ but the smokiness doesn’t dominate letting the other flavors shine through. Hints of caramel, rye, toffee and hazelnut with nice bitter hops up front and subtle spice. Decent balance but not as smokey as I prefer. It’s still pretty good, however, wit some rauchy flavor as well as some sweet malt, toast and faint dark fruit.

Draft with Linh at blind tiger. Pours a dark brown body with reddish tint, no head but minor lacing. Aroma is burnt meat and smoke. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and very meaty. Again, with smoked notes in the taste as well.
