Pour a clear mahogany with a thin light brown head. Not much retention and very little lace, but the color is very nice.
Malty aroma with some sweetness, toffee, a bit nutty, and a faint smokiness. The alcohol starts to peak in as the beer warms.
Flavor is similar to the aroma - sweet & toasted malts, toffee, nuts, and chocolate. Smoke is more faint in the flavor than aroma and leaves me wanting more. Alcohol character builds towards the end but never gets in the way. Finishes dry with a light lingering roast and distant smoke. Nice and sturdy flavors that had me craving some more peat.
On the light side of full bodied, silky smooth,, and creamy. Carbonation is on the low side and perfect for this beer. The sweetness was held nicely in check while remaining malty and satisfying. Awesome and possibly lethal drinkability.
My only complaint is that I wanted more smoke, but this is an excellent beer.
