Had this on 2013-01-25 in Columbia, PA from a 33.8 oz swing top with a bottling date of 2011-10-26.

A - Opaque, almost black with a light tan head that disappears quickly and leaving very light lacing.

S - Smoke, medium roasted grain, background dark chocolate.

T - Very smoky at first, then some malt sweetness, then a resurgance of smoke and maybe some umami. Dark roasted coffee that wasn't apparent to me in the smell. Still a touch of dark chocolate. The smokiness diminishes but doesn't disappear in the flavorful, mildly sweet and roasted-bitter aftertaste.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Smooth and a little creamy. Nice firm feel.

O - While smoked beer's aren't close to being my favorite style, I gotta say, this is a fine one and as much as I enjoyed it; my wife liked it even more. Going to have this again and am looking forward to trying more East End brews.

Growler pour > Pint Glass

A - Brown/black with half a finger of fizzy tan head, small spotty lacing.
S - Different from a lot of other smoked beers, more of a smoked grain and woody smell, which is great, dark chocolate notes, toast, burnt toffee.
T - Outstanding flavor, big smokey hickory flavor, some nice light dark chocolate sweetness, a little bit of a dark dried fruit undertone, very hard to grab, a touch of coffee. This doesnt have that bacon kinda flavor that some smoked beers tend to have. There's also a nice semi fruity and pine hop bite to it as well. Just excellent.
M - Velvety silky smooth texture.
O - Best smoked beer I've had, this lives up to its reputation. Get some at all chances.

A sample courtesy of Pablo, gracias amigo!! Poured at a good temperature, with a thick, tan, creamy head and lots of lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is smoke and malt, bit of fruit. Flavors like malt, and smoke are dominant, bittersweet right behind along with tang. I'm not a huge smoke beer fan so subdued smoke is more my speed. Friends like it much more than me. Finish is clean, true, and a little on the short side. Not bad for a smokey treat.
