3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper amber with medium off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma obvious of clean smoke, mild caramel malt, and herbal hops. Flavor matches well and makes for an interesting drink.
From Sep 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle a hazy reddish-gold with a an ample head of foam that shrank quickly but left a layer that remained for the entire session.
The smell is of semi sweet malt with a touch of smoke.
The taste is woody with notes of smoke and roasted malt. The smoke, to me, is more noticeable midway through and in the finish where it *does* have a bit of harshness to it but, all in all, I like this brew and find it pretty drinkable.

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. slowrunner77 (13171) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"a little lighter on the smoke than i was hoping for. a pleasant enough brew that shows a little fruit and carmel in the nose and flavor. medium bodied. subtle. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014

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. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 16, 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.
