Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a slight amber hue and a brown head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has lots of smoke with hints of dark grains and maple syrup. Flavor begins with maple syrup but quickly becomes smoky with a lot of campfire. Not working for me.

Bottle… Dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is a menagerie of smoked meat, smoked gouda and malty maple. Full-bodied and quite viscous with modest carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty with a load of smoke and a touch of maple. Perfectly balanced. Finishes minerally and smoky. Odd bird, but darn nice. Bottle courtesy of 50belair. Thanks Matt! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2011

750 ml bottle shared by STLWill- thanks again, Will! Pours a deep, clear mahogany color with a big foamy tan head. Aroma of bacon, butterscotch, tree bark, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and maple syrup. Flavor of smoke, maple syrup, roast, dark chocolate, earth, and vanilla. So complex and all over the place. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, sweet, dry mouthfeel and medium soft carbonation. Very sweet. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Tap at The Bruery. Pours a deep brown. Clear. Low carbonation. Isn’t quercus the name for Oak? Nose is smoked meat, vinous, pepper, red grape skins, Syrah, cherries, smoked sausage. Taste is dry, papery, thick cherries, heavy liquid smoke additive. Citrus pith and lemon in the finish. Papery overall. Very strange. Love the smoke. Palate seems to be off. Vinous quality is nice.
