3.48/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark reddish-amber hued body, lightly hazed, and topped with a few scant bubbles.

Smell: A collection of modest notes: chocolate, toast, relatively clean smoke, distant plum, far-off coffee.

Taste: Mild (harhar) milk chocolate with toasted barley grain husks and given a wispy coating of smoke. Almost gives you a hint of washed out coffee -- almost. Low fruity esters. Leafy hops remain light, too, with only a very mild bitterness. Dry, malty, downright gentle finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Lightly carbonation.

Overall: A decent mild!

From cask at the brewpub into a pint glass

A: Pours medium brown with about a finger of dense, creamy off white head. A bit hazy.

S: Very nice - hickory smoked malts are in the forefront, but not overpowering. Slight caramel sweetness in the background supports the smoke. Very little bitterness detected.

T: Similar to smell with bready and hickory smoked malts. Slight caramel sweetness to balance. Very smooth flavors - I could drink this all day.

M: Medium bodied with creamy cask carbonation. I hate to give extra points for good cask carbonation, but it's kind of rare unfortunately.

O: This is a great session beer. The smokiness adds some complexity, but is not overbearing. A very interesting beer.
