32oz growler into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a modest 1 finger course light cream colored head with poor retention. Beer is a clear cherry mahogany. Lacing is spotty, minimal with thick, oily legs. Average considering the style and serving type.

Nose is smoke, molasses, maple and brown sugar sweetness. Pretty straightforward... but confused at the same time.

Opens molasses, brown sugar, some spiciness and nuttiness. Smoke, liquorice and beechwood in the middle with hints of more molasses and anise. Ends sweet and sugary with some chestnut and hazelnut at the finish. Solid.

Medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth with a slight bit of bite in the mouth and goes down warm and viscous. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Decent.

A very unique beer. It takes a little getting used to but the complexity is appreciated and the flavor is solid. Worth trying.

Thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this, enjoyed chilled from the growler in a stemmed glass.

The color is dark tobacco with translucent clarity and thick white head that rings the glass with lace with a fine bead. The smell has lots of malt aroma with a mix of smoky and roasty notes with light woody accent and mild sweet smell. The feel is creamy with light roastiness and subtle carbonation with mild bitterness and gentle smoked edge with gentle alcohol in the feel and mostly dry finish.

The taste begins smoky and earthy with mild toasted malt flavors and low sweetness with smokiness coming back in repeated tastes with a mild english hop flavor that compliments the woodiness in the malt with yeast adding dimension and low alcohol in the background however the dry aspect of the smoke adds an almost chalky taste w/ lingering yeast flavor. Overall this is a decent smoked strong ale with some interesting malt but it still seems a bit green to my taste.
