Bottle, 9.4%. The aroma starts out citric but turns saltily smoked. Clear dark brown colour, deep chestnut. OK brown head. The flavour is nicely smoked, a ham/bacon type of smoke, pleasantly woody. Roasted and sweetish malt base with a boozy finish, alcohol bitterness. bhensonb (15969) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2012
