Great beer! Brown color, mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of smoked ham and malt. Taste is similar to aroma with smoked wood notes. Medium body and carbonation. Moderate bitterness in smoked and roasted aftertaste

Poured a black cola color with a thick tan head that fades relatively quickly to leave but a bit of lacing on the side of the glass. A bit of head hangs around for the duration.

The aroma is great! Smoke up front, a sweet malt comes through, but only slightly.

The taste is almost a duplicate of the aroma. Smokey. Nearly tastes of a freshly extinguished log in the fireplace. Light sweet malt pulls through. After taste of an over cooked steak from the grill (in a good way!)

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light for this amount of flavor.

Drinkability is good, also for this much flavor. I could drink a few of these no problem. Though not something I'll be in the mood to drink a lot.

This is an amazing beer. A whole new world of flavor for me. A definite gouda cheese accompaniment. Might also consider using this in a chili or black bean dish. Great experience!
