Bottle: Cloudy golden with thick heavy head. Fruity with malty tones yet only slight hint of smoke. Overall a quite decent brew. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 It's taken me this long to have this? On tap at the Winking Judge, Hamilton, ON. Super fresh but subdued smoked character. Slightly still and wonderful body. Sweet. Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2003
Not much in the way of aroma. Hazy, dark amber appearance. Very little if any smoke flavour. Spicy flavor, hints of clove. Decent brew jgb9348 (6579) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Hazy dark amber, light brown coloured body with a thin off-white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of strong apples, cider, brown sugar, nutmeg and some malt. Medium-bodied; Odd taste of salmon, malt, metal, apples, pears, yeast and some wheat. Aftertaste shows a bad slightly offensive characteristic...definately not enjoyable. Overall, this beer is pretty bad, and is understandable that I kept from drinking it for so long! I bought this twelve ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 14-December-2003. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Big head, slow to disappate. Cloudy, orange brown--sweet-smelling, some cinnamon. No smoke. No layers in the mouth. Sweet and thin. Finishes like water.

As far as smoked beers go, this is fairly average. Not offensive, not delightful. A light, ambery color. A little yeasty. Some sweetness, a little bitterness. Probably wouldn't spend the money again. mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Yeasty mald malt skunk hop aroma.Sparkling light bronze appearance with big head.Sweet malty flavor with skunky hops at the finish.Couldn't detect any whiskey malt.I'm guessing that this bottle was refridgerated at the liquor store a few years causing the bad but drinkable flavors. flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Cloudy yellow-orange color with a white head. Mildly hoppy and pukey aroma. Taste was a little better. A bit of malty sweetness and slight hoppy bite. Very mild smoke aftertaste. loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor were sad...slightly hoppy, slightly malty, slightly smoky, with a generous vommit tone. The feel was rather soft. My least favorite from this brewery. BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2003
Cloudy amber-orange colour with almost no head. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Taste of malt, honey and spices. Smoke in the finish. Warming and enjoyable.
