4.28/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Had with my supper, PC quesadillas.

Appearance: Pours a nearly opaque brown body with a cascading 3 finger toffee colored head than recedes to nothing in less than a minute.

Smell: Very smoky and woody. Nice and full without being overpowering.

Taste: Starts out quiet a bit with some smoke that is present but more discreet than the aroma. Through the middle i get a sweeter flavor with caramel and maple and it finishes with a nice bitter touch. Images of wood fires come to mind as well as smoked cheese.

Mouthfeel: Average to high carbonation with a great balance though maybe not as robust as i would like.

Drinkability: ABV is not a factor as this drinks remarkably well. I would have this again for sure.

Overall: This beer surprised me because it's previous incarnation (Calumet Grand Chef) was not a big hit with me. I was skeptical with this one but it proved me wrong. Definitely worth checking out and much better than their Double Porter.

A- Deep black, with slight dark brown highlights. Small beige, brown head went fast. I'm not seeing much lacing. A few dots here and there.

S- Right away, the smokiness isn't really massive. Some nice chocolaty alcohol. A bit of cantaloupe.

T- Good sweet smokey beer. Was expecting something a lot more extreme. Cantaloupe, whisky alcohol, maple syrup sweetness and dark chocolate bitterness. A bit of dark fruit. I'd say the alcohol fits in well.

M- Isn't thin but feels a bit thin. Might be the taste. Sharp but moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel ain't this beers strong point.

D- Good. I'd drink a pint of it in a bar if the mouthfeel was more satisfying.

Well, nothing really massive about this beer. It's good though.
