chestnut color. The body is med full, the smoke is very subtle. A bit sweet and malty. The could just be called a bock. Fairly rich finish. Pleasant. KyotoLefty (10194) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2013
Tap at Tadg’s. Dark brown, cloudy, low head that disappeared quickly. Good smoky nose, caramel, chocolate. Flavor is not all that smoky, more chocolate and caramel, nice malts. Decent.

6.5% draft pint at Tadg’s during Happy Hour. A clear deep reddish brown. A really lovely smokey, bacon, malty & toffee/caramel aroma. Smooth medium body, with smoke, hints of bacon, sweet caramel malts & a bit of wine accents in the finish. A nice beer. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2013
Tap at Gar Eden. Dark brown with small golden head. Aroma is smoke, bit spicy, meaty, malty. Taste is pretty good, smoke naturally, slight sweetness, something like burnt caramel, slight fruitiness, thinking of apples for some reason. Maybe bit of cherry. Big and malty again. Quite nice and not in your face.
