Ferris (14834) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle - Roasted malts, peat and some chocolate. Jet black with a thin white head. Wow, all sweet peat, some smoke and some nice chocolaty malts. Although this is a peat BOMB, it is nicely balanced and doesnt taste like I am sucking a barrel. I am a fan.

NIce pitch black body with modest beige head on top. Aroma is all heated shoe leather and peat, lots of peat like a scotch. Flavour is animal hair with all that peat coming through with a peaty finish. Did I mention the peat yet? This is a common problem I find with the "smoked" style, way too much smoked without enough other nuances showing through. That said, its still a decent beer and highly drinkable.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB JAN 03 13.

App.: Deep brown with a pretty nice light mocha head. Aroma: Lots of peaty smoke, a touch of campfire/meat smoke, good dark malt support, some brown sugar and treacle, very light roasted notes, the smoke is prominent but nicely integrated. Palate: Medium+ body, limited effervescence, smooth and slightly powdery. Flav.: A little more rich maltiness than the nose, still plenty of smoke, peat, light campfire, brown sugar, a little molasses, a touch of dark chocolate/cocoa, balanced; dry with gentle bitterness and a fairly long, smoky and deeply malty finish.

Fairly successful.

Ash black pour with thin smokey cap (sorry couldnt resist). The kind of beer that frees the mind so the ass can follow. Leather & slow BBQ on the nose. Less scotch; more southern fried. Makes me wanna road trip to this brewery.

Not a big fan of smoked beer, but Ill admit that this one is interesting and not bad. Deep brown/black colour. Some chocolate in the nose. Nice texture.

rodenbach99 (4554) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2015 Une bouteille de 650ml peinte. Best before june 08 13. Belle trouvaille de Patrick. Bire brune avec des reflets rouges. La mousse a une belle tenue. Le premier nez est chocolat avec des notes fumes en sourdine. La texture en bouche est agrable. Cest facile boire. Les notes fumes ne sont pas trop agressantes. La finale sur le malt la tourbe est agrable. Peu de trace diode, cest bien. Un produit simple mais efficace et facile boire. (bue en 2015 vec m/me r/sultat)

dinkle50 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Deep red color but clear. Single finger head. Aroma of grain with a hint of smoke and toffee. Mouth is slightly creamy. Taste has some aspects of a peaty scotch. Bitter smokey finish. Pretty nice if you like peaty scotches from Islay.

SlovakSniper (5529) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
Une bouteille de 65 cl meilleure avant le 8 juin 2013. Un scotch (?) bien fonc et son anneau de mousse. Un nez de tourbe, de terre chaude et sale avec des grains cendrs et rtis. Des saveurs qui vont dans la mme direction. Un constat: la structure malte nest pas celle que je retrouve ordinairement dans ce style. Un corps plutt faible avec un ptillement modr et une texture qui nest pas aqueuse. Une finale qui propose la rencontre entre des notes amres et une fume lgre. Un concept intressant pour ceux et celles qui dsirent explorer les bires fumes.
