3.88/5 rDev -2.3%
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Thin tan head. Moderate malty smoke aroma. Appearance is dark brown / garnet and clear. Low head. Flavor is balanced heavily toward malt. Strong caramel malt flavor with some smoke up front. Creamy/smooth finish.

3.5/5 rDev -11.8%
22oz bottle purchased at Spirit Haus, Amherst, MA.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed 1/4" tan head over the cloudy reddish brown brew. Head is quickly down to skim that recedes to the rim, with average lacing but impressive legs. Aroma is peat and dark fruits.
Flavor is lightly smoky peat to start, muddled fruit in the middle, with earthy hops bitterness through the close. Slight lingering numbness after the swallow. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is alright. Nothing too much stands out on this one for me, still a solid brew though.

Nice tawny brown with red hues when held to the light. Good off-white head that was big on the pour but disappeared soon after.
Earthy notes up front, with the peaty edge coming through with the toasted malt. Some burnt sugars in the nose as well.
Earthy was the first thing I smelled, and this is very similar in taste. Good bread crust bitterness in the malt, although I would have liked a bit more sugar. A little toffee, over-browned bread, some slight smokiness in the malt, leading to long malt and bitterness. Nice richness and complexity.
Fuller bodied, with just the right amount of carbonation.
A really good domestic version of the style. Cannot compete with the imported, nor should it try. Feels fresh and complex enough to drive you to want more. Worthy.
