From a 355ml bottle on 20/7/2014. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a strong and quite pleasant smoky aroma, but with less bacon than you often get with smoked brews. The smoke is relatively subtle in the mouth but compliments sweet chocolate, a touch of dark fruit and spice, and a nice roasty lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a really impressive, cohesive brew and definitely one of the best smoked beers I’ve had. Lovely stuff. Patrickctenchi (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2014
