A: poured into a snifter to a deep reddish brown with a finger of dense light tan head that is slow to fade.
S: smells of smoke and caramel. for being barely over a year old the hops are surprisingly absent
T: taste is piney and citrusy hops with an underlying smokyness and caramel sweetness. still fairly resinous. swallow is smoke, oily piney hops and caramel sweetness
M: this beer sits fairly heavy on the palate with soft carbonation and a drying finish
O: It's pretty rad, the smoke is a nice twist on the style and OG is always a pleaser after it has some time to mellow. In another year or two my last bottle will be drinking super smooth and decadently. I dare to say it would probably taste a bit like a Speyside. This beer needs to be remade and placed into barrels.
