12 oz bottle. Dark burnt orange with off-white head and lacing. The aroma is strong smoked malts. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Smoky flavor but not overdone. Light caramel malts with a smoky lingering finish.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear amber copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a mild to moderate smoked character, caramel, some earthy notes, wood, hints of fruit, apple, cherry, body is lighter, overall, just ok.

Nice dark amber color. Small amount of head. Smells of dark smokey malts. Leaves a dry feeling on the tongue.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This was a better beer than I had imagined. Pours a crystal clear amber. Very slight aroma of smoke but mostly caramel and malt. Flavor has more smoke but it isn't overpowering. Not a fan of the style but this is probably the best one I've ever had. Medium bodied. Very nice beer.

GABF week 2012. On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear orange hue with a lasting off-white head. Aromas are malty, bready, honey, light smoke, toasty, nutty and dried fruit. Flavors are smokey, nutty, maple, molasses. Fuller bodied with medium carbonation.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 3, 2013
12oz bottle pours a cloudy amber color with off white head. plenty of carbonation and floaters. minimal lacing so far. strange aroma of caramel and smoke. almost a semi sweet smell. flavor is well...caramelly sweet smoke. almost a medium bodied lager but this is not a good smoked beer.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours red with a small head. Aroma has malts and caramel, kinda boozy. Nice, smoky and sweet flavor, malty overall. Little chocolatey at the end. Pretty decent. 4.5% alcohol.

3.5
SDalkoholic (2395) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from BevMo: Poured a dark natural golden honey color that appeared as a burnt amber hue while only a thin layer of head graced the top of my beer. The aroma was full bodied with a rich base of caramel malts that really gives off a scent of smokiness. The flavor is pure rauch with a thick taste of smoked malts that makes this beers one the better rauch or amber style beers I’ve come across.
