UPDATED: JUL 12, 2018 Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is smoked meats, teriyaki jerky, campfire bacon, molasses. Taste is smoked malts, malty sweetness, a strange vanilla or artificial sweetness in the middle and then dry almost ashy finish. Loved the aroma but something chalky and overly sweet in the middle was a little rough for me. bhensonb (17242) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2018
Botttle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown with a transient beige head. Aroma is very wood smoke, but tell me the malt is smoked with reindeer dung and I’ll believe you. Med body plus a bit. Flavor is very wood smoke. It’s reasonably dry. Body drops as carbonation leaves. It’s a fairly one note thing. This is a smoky beer. marcus (11718) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 2, 2018
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours near black with a transient beige head and a smoky aroma. There is a near full- bodied dark molasses flavor with a lot of smoke and a dry finish wombat23 (2554) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2018
