Not much information on the website for this one, but listed as #2 in the Great Lakes series and that the wood used for the smoke was cherrywood. I don't know anymore about the background of the beer, but it was pleasant to have on draft when there recently. I listed it as a one off, though that's an assumption based on it be in a series.

Served in a small glass, which is always a good sign for a big beer like this. Not in a snifter, but a mini English point glass. Dark brown but not opaque beer with crimson highlights. Almost white head that fell quickly to a thin film. Smokey nose, as advertised, on top of a caramel and thick malt. Little alcohol in the nose. Charcoal at the back of the tongue. Dangerously smooth. Sweet middle that like overripe figs or old raisins--dark cherry in the middle of the beer. Definitely try this smooth lager if you're in the pub.
