Undated bottle at 40 degrees into 0.5 L glass
Aroma of smoke
Head large (5 cm), off white, frothy, diminishing to 3 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing none
Body dark amber, cloudy
Flavor of smoke and some yeast phenolics; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 3.75, Overall 3.9375. Final weighted score: 3.9625
Other than the palate being on the watery side of creamy, this is an excellent beer. The smoke controls the aroma but accents the yeast phenolics in the flavor.

Date: 9/15/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Modest head retention. Allows ample light through the beer.
Aroma: Big smell of smoke and wood. Reminds me of a BBQ pit. The smell is one dimensional to me.
Taste: The taste is not one dimensional at all. Strong smoke/wood flavor to start again but the difference is the beer now gives off mild wheat grains some light woodsy hop flavor (aged) in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to Medium body. Low carbonation. The wheat provides a very smooth mouthfeel. The only lingering flavors belong to the smoke.

Bottle poured into a tall Hef glass

A - Hazy amber in color. Kind of a plum amber. Head is very tall and foamy. Head dissipates extremely slowly. Head is retained until the glass is drained. 4.25/5

S - Fairly smoky. Reminds of when my wife worked in a meat plant and would come home with the scent of liquid smoke on her clothes. Dried bananas. Cloves. Undertone of bread. 4.5/5

T - Roasted malt in the beginning transitioning to a hefty smokiness and bananas, then finally by cloves. Fairly complex. One flavor follows the next. Hint of toffee. 4.5/5

M - Fairly low carbonation. Chewy in the beginning. Finishes somewhat dry which was kind of surprising. 4/5

O - My first smoked beer. Very complex with a multitude of flavors. The smoke was balanced nicely by the sweetness of the banana flavor (yeast). The clove flavor really came out in this one. 4.25/5
