Bottle. From notes. Maple syrup and a good dose of meaty smoke. This is definitely a bottle to share. McNeillR (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Soft orange with flat head. Thick rusty sweetness, with edge of pancakes left in the toaster too long. Stern oilyness with a decent malt sweep. Pinch of roast and fairly sad finish debasing early promise.cgarvieuk (26360) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cheers to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, little bubbly white head. Palate is light and soft and dry. Smooth and light creamy malt. Floral note. Smoke is pretty obvious but never gets acrid. Light dry finish. Pretty tasty and a little different.

Tap at brewery. Pour is copper, aroma is smoky, decent maple flavor. Smoky flavor as well. CamdenD (1204) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2013
A very interesting beer that is more mellow than you would think, given the participants and ingredients. This works well as a dessert beer but also just as a beer. Good. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2013
50cl bottle. Medium beige head atop hazy dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, maple, some wood smoke, light lager yeast. Taste is moderately sweet, wood smoke, some maple, lager yeast. Light-medium body, light stickiness, low carbonation. AirForceHops (8026) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2013
500 ml bottle. Cloudy brown color, white hubby head that produced a good retention. Nose is nice maple syrup, caramel with just a hint of smoke. The lactose sugar gives the maple an extra sweetness that really tones down the smoked malt. The body is medium with the sweetness being a major aspect. Maybe my favorite smoked beer I have sampled to this date.
