Burgundy-amber-brown body. Brutal peat smoke alcohol aroma. Lots of peat smoke, an odd creation. The peat is just overwhelming and dominates. Almost a dry coffee bitterness. Not that good. Brutal.

This was plenty good. Hazy chestnut brown with red hues. Very smoky flavor, rich with band-aid and salami. Well rounded mouthfeel, balancing malts and alcoholic edge. An all around success, with big flavors and highly attractive qualities in every direction. (on tap at brewpub)

some awesome great lakes area trade partner bonused me this beer, been waiting to crack it.... wow. bottle 174/204. big ass smokey brew here. pours like a brown ale but drinks like beef jerky extract. one of the better overly smoked brews ive had. pretty balanced considering the dominated smoke and meat presence. tastes like charred salami. seems like this would be a 5.0 in a smoke geeks ratings. has super meaty mouthfeel and finish, chewiest ive had straight up. crazy stuff. i can enjoy half this bomber, but im not a smoke head so that will be about it for me.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Pours a clear, dark brown with no real head. Aroma is a lot of smoke with woody notes. Flavor is also quite smokey though sweet malt and almost a medicine tinge comes through as well. Medium bodied with some carbonation. This is a great, smokey brew,

Winterfest ’11. I love smoked beers and this one did not disappoint. It was served from a bottle rather. Strong aroma of smoked grain and smoked wood. Medium sweet malt, and a very thick palate. One of the highlights of the festival

Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Oh the smoke, it burns, it burns! I like smoked beers. One of my highest rates is a smoked beer. But I could not finish the 2 oz pour of this guy. Pitch black, with a dark tan head that is gone quick with no lacing. Overpowering smoke on the nose, nothing else is clawing through that. Flavor isnt quite so bad, some actual flavors there, earthy, a bit of burnt caramel. Dial back on the smoked malt next time...
