Smoked beers are by far my least favorite style but I gave this one a shot and was pleasantly surprised.
A – Black as night with a really nice 2 finger toffee colored head. Good retention and lacing.
S – Smoke and peat are really heavy first but then I get small hints of sweet malt and chocolate. There is also a very small hint of coffee present.
T – Smoke hits the tongue first followed by a very smooth milk chocolate, and roasted malt flavor. Smoke lingers in the aftertaste.
M – This is a medium to heavy bodied beer with good carbonation. All the flavors complement each other pretty well. It is drier than I anticipated but really nice.
O – Overall this was pretty good the smoke didn’t dominate like I expected which was nice. Not my first choice in brew but very drinkable.

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.
