Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts and smoke.
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and smoke.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The smoke is really dominant at first in both the aroma and flavour. Once this settles downs however, the aroma lacks intensity. Great flavour and palate and an amazing appearance though.
Bottle from the Blue Moon, Cambridge. Dark brown and impenetrable with a khaki head. Chocolate fudge sundae with notes of milky coffee. Getting surprisingly little smoke but there is some nice hoppy floral scent. The milky sweetness is interwoven with a sharp bittering hop. There is sweet campfire smoke in the background and the finish is strongly smoky. Very well carbonated. Yum.
