On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out smoke notes upfront, followed by toasted chestnuts and a touch of dark fruit. Flavour is extremely well-balanced, with moderate smoke notes, followed by caramel, and toasted nuts. Very nice stuff - equal stuff between doppelbock and smoked beer.

A really nice smokey and well balance smokey ale. What can I say, hits all the buttons. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - DEC 5, 2014
