It was a very good beer, for the style, but the smokey flavor was way too strong.

Pours dark brown with a very noticeable red hue.

Vanilla, caramel, earthy, and dark fruits.

Bready, slightly roasted notes, caramel, vanilla, and fruity esters.

Medium-heavy bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, sticky, smooth.

Overall, this one is up there in my favorites for this style.

Enjoyable for sure, but lacks the wow factor. I enjoyed it with a boar burger on a COLD January day.

L: Pours with beautiful red-brown; thin, creamy head. Very nice lacing.

S: Minimal malt. Maybe it's my nose, but I'm not picking much up in comparison to the taste.

T: Slight fruity, excellent malt. Hides the alcohol well.

F: Perfect creamy mouthfeel, finish, and carbonation balance.

O: Great beer - took the whole four pack to appreciate it's depth.
