AleSmith Decadence 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to a snifter showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with an abundance of floating particulates, soft white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was mild Belgian yeast with light spice & floral perfume, soft malt, sweetness, esters as pit fruit variety, and lurking alcohol. Light to medium bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste was similar notes with a non-boozy exposure to the alcohol. Nice, all the right nuances, but not overly hearty for the occasion, or a Belgian Golden Strong.

AleSmith Private Stock Ale
It pours dark amber with a light brown moderate head and it also has legs. There are high fruit aromas from cherries and dried fruits. There are also aromas of alcohol, sherry, and toffee. There are flavors that are malty sweet They feature molasses and toffee. In addition alcohol, sherry, dried fruit and toffee are part of the array of flavors. It is full bodied and chewy with plenty of alcohol warming. It has a low-moderate carbonation. Overall, it is a complex malty blend with significant alcohol but not to the point of being hot.

AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale
Ooh yeah, now were talking. All the complexity and nuance of the other AleSmith brews that have recently made it to Texas but also featuring smoky, roasty notes. Delicious. Will definitely be stashing a couple of these away for a later date.

Complex and lively, just how I like my women. Im not sure I could pick coriander seed out of a lineup but the final result is balanced and tasty so I will assume they are an important addition.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Hawaiian
On tap at alesmith. Thick black pour, with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, bitter roasted coffee, alcohol, coconut, and hints of vanilla. Solid, but there are better speedway variations.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Hammerhead
Taps coffee sable with a nice tan head. Aroma delivers quality coffee, roasted malt, molasses, toffee, and subtle semi-sweet chocolate notes. Flavor explodes with quality coffee, roasted malt, molasses, toffee and chocolate character, plus an alcohol nip to remind you of how potent this potable is. Mouthfeel features thick body and good fizz, as well as a coffee-alcohol finish. Hammer down the speedway and grab a crater!

AleSmith Spring Bock
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a vibrant dark honey color with a large fluffy orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with sugar and golden fruit notes. The flavor was tangy, sweet and mildly boozy with notes of yeast, bread, table sugar and golden fruit. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

AleSmith Nut Brown English-Style Ale (Bottle and Draft)
Bottle. Pours a beautiful medium brown with garnet highlights and a off-tan ring head. Nose is chocolate, roast filberts, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, and Boston brown bread. On the tongue, its astonishingly rich and complex; spice and smoke up front, then a myriad number of dark fruits and nuts followed by fresh wheat bread, a little hops bitterness, and dark chocolate. My first AleSmith beer, and damn, its a beauty.

AleSmith Double Red IPA
The new incarnation of the famed Winter Yulesmith. At BeerTemple, shared by Jasper of Arendsnest, cheers! Cobweb lacing, pale greyish white head over a hazy burgundy coloured beer with deep vermillion red glow. Aroma of pink grapefruit, candied orange, hazelnut, sweet onion, pink pepper, biscuit, wormwood. Restrained and well-placed sweetishness in the mouth surrounded by a light umami edge, spritzy carbo, smooth and resinous caramelly and nutty malt body, long hoppy finish providing gentle bitterness as well as pleasant piney and grapefruit effects retronasally. Another AleSmith beauty, not far removed from their My Bloody Valentine.

Taps clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma presents hoppy,caress malt, and subtle pear notes. Flavor delivers resiny and slightly bitter hops, malt, and a pomme tone that mixes pear and apple. Mouthfeel features good body and firm, lasting, lively fizz. This one bats a homer!

Bottle from Flask at home. Pours hazy amber with white head. Immense aroma of hops, some pine, and some fruit. Taste is delightfully hoppy and bitter with an earthy quality to it. Perhaps some grapefruit and pine to the taste. Truly astonishing.

AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale
Murky brown color with tan head. Aroma has lots of dried dark fruit like raisins and dates. Taste follows with the dried fruits, brown sugar and caramel. Not overly sweet, easy drinking especially for the high ABV. Heavy body with sticky feel and medium carbonation. Really good scotch ale, one of the best I had.

AleSmith Double IPA
12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 with Gus and I. The pour is a brighter golden yellow with a hefty white head that falls to a bubbly collar. The aroma is pretty malty. I dont like it. There is a bit of citrus and some hop present, but the malts really are pissing me off. Its not that great. The flavor is a little better, but not much. Malty as hell. The citrus and juiciness makes it a little more tolerable. Its just a disappointment all around. The mouth feel is interesting. Its thicker and carries a nice carbonation but has a lingeringly malty and light citrus aftertaste. Interesting, but not my jam at all.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. Bottle date 4/28/2016. Aroma is old. Weird. Malt, citrus, tropical fruit, pine. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, mostly clear. Taste is citrus, a terrible amount of malt, pine, bitter malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, bitter malt and pine aftertaste. Overall, severely disappointing for a beer well within the drinking window.

Light hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty, vanilla, bourbon, toffee, figs, some toasted oak with hints of coconut. Taste is sweet malty, light bitter, some light boozy warming notes. Finish is warming bourbon notes, sweet toffee, caramel, figs, some raisins, vanilla, some bitter notes of hops and charred oak.

Very nice malty barley wine with great barrel character.

Celestial good fragrance of fruitiness. Perfectly balanced taste between the sweet and the bitter part. Occasionally fruity. Perfectly balanced bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. This is perfection in the bottle. One can not more than to enjoy! Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Hammerhead
Draft at WoB Gilbert. Not surprisingly, the strong scents of deep coffee (with an herbal tang) and mocha sweetness hammer the nostrils. Pours flat black with a two-finger khaki head. Like the nose, rich dark-roasted java dominates the taste, with traces of cocoa and faint licorice floating beneath. So its basically Speedway with a bunch more coffee simple yet a decadent boost on an already great imperial stout.

AleSmith Double Red IPA
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of pine hops and malt. Clear brown color, beige head that doesnt give up, bands of lace. Taste is sweet dark malt that grows into medium fizz and somewhat reserved hops that are tinged with pine. A huge brew, quite heavy, but very good anyway. It is difficult to finish the bomber by myself. I could have it again.

AleSmith Reforged
One of the better blended barrel aged beer of this subclass. Dark brown with tan whispy light head. Aroma is bourbon, toast, pepper, cocoa, pumpernickle bread, and light coffee. Taste is where this shines. Great barrel character and roasty backbone balances the moderate sweetness to a toasty finish.

AleSmith IPA
Light amber and medium-bodied. The aroma is mostly citrusy hops, with notes of pine and spice. The flavour is richly hopped; fruity, citrusy, spicy, and a little pungent. Moderately sweet taste with a highly bitter finish. Overall, a very good IPA and nothing less than I would expect from AleSmith. It is very tasty, balanced and harmonious, despite the significant hop profile.

Havent had this one in years. 6 pack bottles from rozis for 15.99. Pour is medium Golden with thin white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, resin and toasted bread. Flavor has some malt up front with a very piney resinous hop punch. The malt is definitely there for the style but the bitter hops and pine are big. Has the original California ipa flavor and a very long bitter finish. Reminds me of moylans double ipa, which we cant get in cle anymore!
