Certainly better than their other two beers I had but a not so sure about this whole finest smoked malt idea. Pours mahogany with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish with some smoke. Bottle i didn't finish. chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2017
12 oz bottle in Idaho.
Excellent appearance with a clear but very dark brown body and a large, durable tan head.
Somewhat unappealing, peaty aroma. Similar but better flavor. Good bitter-sweet balance.
Very good feel: near creamy smooth and full body. sbrittain (1) - Montana, USA - JUN 6, 2017 does not count
Personally I am not a for the hoppy beers. I like the sweeter smoother beers and this falls in my personal catagory of good tasting beer. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2017

Bottle. Nutty toffee malt and fresh hay aroma. Dark brown with large tan head. Moderately sweet nutty toffee malt and moderately bitter astringent hay flavor. Body a bit light. Pretty good.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, with no head, just a small, tan ring. Earthy and savory aroma, with notes of chicory, cloves, toffee, cedar, and black pepper. Sweet and very malty, with a light bitterness and good, spicy finish. Medium body, grainy, hard, and a little thin. This is a fairly solid scotch ale, and wonderfully aromatic, but lacking in the appearance and palate. Patrickctenchi (6692) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Dark brown/copper with a small beige head.
Toffee, lightly smoky malt aroma.
Baked bread, toffee malt, chocolate malt taste.
More along the lines of a porter or brown ale, really, but quite nice.....
Good flavour....lighter bodied than expected. dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2016
I thought this was decent. Not nearly as sweet as many Scotch ales but has the similar caramelly malt flavor. Worked as a hair of the dog beer. Iphonephan (7194) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2016
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a Clear dark mahogany with an ecru head. Malty nose. Flavors of toffee. Smooth finish. Beerandhockey8 (423) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - FEB 7, 2016
From 12 oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice dark brown color, cola like with a thick tan head the dissipates quickly. Nose is weak, some malt, chocolate, caramel, ready. Taste is light-medium bodied, mostly sweet. Finishes crisp on the palate. Not a bad beer, very drinkable.
