A: Pours an opaque yet still clear very dark brownish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a moderate amount of cola brown and garnet highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of thick film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of smoked malts, specifically a smoke that is similar to what I would expect when smoking sausages or bacon.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of roasted and caramel malts with a moderate to strong flavor of smoked malts. Light notes of leather and just a hint of iodine flavors from the smoking of the malts. Light bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very smooth.

O: Very interesting smoke aromas and flavors in this beer without being overwhelming. Very enjoyable, especially for someone that enjoys smoke and pretty easy to drink. Pairs well with smoked sausages.

My first smoked beer. Chestnut in color with a small fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Smokey and meaty in aroma with some freshly tanned leather. Taste is malty with a lingering flavor like bark and grain. Mild bitterness finishes very dry. Mouthfeel is light and watery with medium-low carbonation. An interesting beer. The quality seems fine, but it may take a few of these to develop my palate for them. My first one was not that enjoyable and I have tried most styles.
