Holy smoke is one of the most unique beers I’ve had and it’s local to boot! It’s a nice, heavy ale with such a unique smokey flavor. It’s not a beer to have too many of. But 2-3 of them to sip on and savour can’t be beat!

On tap from Volo. poured a dark, roast color. Strong bacon and fire aromas (im not lying). the best way to describe this beer is passing out drunk by a campfire and waking up to taste the shirt you passed out in.

The finale of the Volo sampler trifecta from September 14, 2006. Again, a 5 oz sample on tap. The beer poured a dark chocolate brown with an almost non existent head although in all fairness I was so excited for the other two beer that I didn’t pay as much attention to the third pour as I should have… That being said, there was still a crisp thin white head sitting just on top. The first impression of the scent is a pound of freshly cooking smoked bacon (mmmmm….. bacon…..) (but I digress). There is a smooth silky mouth feel that envelopes your tongue like a nice winter scarf. Overall it is like eating a pound of bacon and then drinking out of an ash tray (only without the overwhelmingly negative connotations)

Beautiful dark amber colour that starts off with a nice roasted bitterness with a peaty lingering finish. Definately not for everyone, but a must try for dark beer lovers. Had it at the Bow and Arrow in Toronto.

On tap - BeerBistro Toronto. Wonderful black beer with good smokiness and roastiness. Seems to be a smoked porter which is fast becoming one of my favourite styles. Very good drinkable beer.
