On tap Belmont Station PDX 11.25.11.

Half a finger white head, clear light orangish amber body, a few streams of bubbles rising to surface, good lacing. Mild smoke aromas, a bit sweet balanced by floral hops, pretty subtle smoke-wise. The smoke comes through taste wise, beechwood predominates, fairly sweet, complex smokiness though no ashtray, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is medium decent effervescence. Along with Caldera Ur Bock, one of the PNW better smoked beers, though this is harder than hell to find. Worth a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
