3.64/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a 16 oz snifter, bottled on 3/25/14. Pours a deep mahogany, with a two inch soft tan head.

Smell is smokey peat, caramel, fig, vanilla, and molasses.

Taste is dominated by smoke, some fig and caramel lend a hand, but barely a cameo appearance. The smoke lingers in the mouth long after each sip, some vanilla in the finish.

Body is medium large, plenty of life, a touch dry, and man it goes down easy enough, but it really assaults the palate with bitter smoke.

Overall I am at a loss. I don't love it or hate it. It is an acquired taste of a beer. If you are into smoked beers you will like this.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a solid dark brown with a decent sized very creamy tan head that sticks on to for a good long time. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and chocolate with hints of dark fruit. There is a bit of smoke in the nose, but it is very subtle. The flavor is light in the bacon heavy in the fruity flavor with lots of caramel brown sugar and chocolate. Medium body with a creamy silky mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. Oddly for a double smoked double brown ale this one is not very smokey. That being said, I often find that smoked beer tends to be over the top with phenols whereas this beer uses the smoke to add a bit of character to a really nice brown ale.
