Bottle dated 10/17/12 poured into a shaker pint.
A: Pours a reddish brown, with ruby hues. Khaki, two finger head. Nice, clinging lace is left on the glass.
S: Good mix of roasted barley malt, light smoke, chocalte malt, and some caramel sweetness.
T: Starts off with a good dose of smokey roasted malt and follows with a chocolate and vanilla cream sweetness. Finishes with a light espresoo like dryness, mildly bitter bite from the roasted malt, with a lingering roasted, smokey char aftertaste. The smoke is a bit subdued, but as the beer warms it becomes more pronounced.
M: Lighter bodied, could use a bit more heft, soft mouthfeel, carbonation is right down the middle. Very easy going down, good drinkability.
O: Solid brew, finds the right balance of smoke, roast, and sweetness. Drinks more like a smokey porter to me but nonetheless, another solid offering from JA.

An Excellent beer. I find myself going back to it time and time again at locations such as the Yard House, where there are 100 + beers on tap.
A - Deep dark beer with almost a smoky haze
S - Smell of faint smoke - not overpowering - which is a big win for this beer
T - Taste of light smoke, and creaminess.
M - A bit waxy in the mouth, but not overwhelming
O - Great beer. Highly recommended.
