2.75/5  rDev -24.7%

On-tap at Lucky Baldwin's

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a tan head.

S: The nose is quite smokey and salty with a big of a woody/bacon/nut aroma to it.

T: A ton of smoke, wood, and salt flavor to this that is somewhat astringent and not all that pleasant.

M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.

D: Not the most intense of the smoked beers I've had, but you still have to really enjoy the smoke to want to drink too much of this one.

3.58/5  rDev -1.9%

Sampled at the 2003 San Diego Strong Ale Festival. (4 ounce taster glass)

Beer pours light brown in the glass with great clarity and a tan head that holds to the glass.

A sandalwood hop aroma comes charging out of the glass followed by a soft brown sugar malt.

Flavor is chewy caramels with little toffee bits accented by a lightly puckering hop bitterness that leads to a dry palate with sweet sticky lips.

Medium orange color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is fruit, orange and malt. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are spicy. Orange flavors throughout this beer. Nicely balanced. Very smooth. No alcohol bite at 8%. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.9/5  rDev +6.8%

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours amber with a soft white head, good lace.

S: Phenolic nose, medicinal, very Belgian.

T: Weird. Originally when I tasted this I got all bubblegum, very hefe-like. Today I get a spicy, rye-like smoky ale. Good tasting for sure both ways.

M: Smooth, light/medium-bodied, frothy, this doesn't feel like 8.3% for sure.

D: Another winner from Craftsman, keep 'em coming.

4.2/5  rDev +15.1%

On tap at Lucky Baldwin's. Medium brown, orange highlights. Not much head. Smells strongly of smoke. Taste is well balanced even with smoky (almost bacon) flavour. Incredibly tasty, medium body. A really good smoked beer. Not insanely drinkable, but definitely enjoyable. "Quaffable".
