Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is subtle but well dome with layers of smoke, chocolate, roasted malts, pork, and faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is dry and malty with a touch of caramel sweetness and soft bitterness; smoke undertones present throughout and come thru at the end for a dry, woody finish. Medium body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised I hadn’t previously reviewed this, having enjoyed both draft & bottled versions at a number of festivals & gatherings. This time, shared 12 oz. bottles brought back from Missouri, poured to snifters, displaying a darkest brown color, with ruby highlighting, a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and a cluster of thick spots of lacing. The nose was well roasted, with subtle sweetness of caramel, toffee, and treacle, and defining smoke. The taste was similar notes as the aroma, with soft carbonation, in a light to medium body. Seemed a bit light textured this time around, but a benchmark example of the style, nonetheless.
