Poured from a Morimoto Black Obi bottle. Don't ask me why, that's how I bought it at the Rogue Pub in San Francisco. Fortunately, a little tag on the cap let's me know that this is Smoke Ale.
Honey brown in color, with minimal head. Smells of smoke, naturally. Well, maybe not naturally. Has kind of a "flavor injected" charcoal briquet feel. Whiffs of sweet malt. Very "earthy".
Mellow sweet malts and faint smokiness in the taste department. Nothing too overpowering, but fairly tasty. Hop bitterness kicks in towards the end, giving a little boost towards a thin, mildly bittersweet finish.
A decent brew, but I think I'll stick with Rauchbiers and smoked porters.

On tap at Rogue brewpub in Eugene, poured into a pint glass.
A-Pours a dark golden amber, slightly opaque. Has a very thin top of off white head, visible lacing.
S-Smoked oak, caramel malt.
T-Sweet caramel malt, campfire smoke, slight hoppy bitterness. There's even the smallest hint of sour granny smith apple.
M-Light medium body, very light carbonation.
O-Pleasant smoke ale with light balance. The smoke flavor isn't overwhelming and I'd prefer more of it also more carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap
