4.09/5 rDev -0.7%
App- cola brown body, fairly minimal one finger head with minimal retention. No lacing.
Smell- smells like a sweet brown ale- caramel, molasses, brown sugar with a bit of chocolate. And a nice smoky presence that isn't overpowering but is definitely there.
Flavour- same as the smell but the smokiness is much more pronounced on the backend. Much more enjoyable than any other smoked beer I've ever had where it is smoked all day long like a campfire. Complex with the smoke being just another layer on top of all the other brown ale characteristics.
Mouthfeel- medium bodied, creamy and a nice smoky and dry finish. Drinkable for sure.
Overall- certainly is the best smoked beer I've had as the smoke is masterfully woven into the rest of the beer. It's still a smoked beer, though..

Had on tap at Prohibition Pig and Blackback. I always feel bad deducting points for a style I'm not crazy about. I like smoke... don't love it and had it up against a few other HF brews. Was still pretty amazing. Just felt like the smoke was out of place. More like an experiment, and yet still about a 90 in my book. Speaks volumes for HF~
