3.5/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Deep amber-hued body, fair clarity, with a medium-small, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Lightly grainy, toasted malts. Sliver of caramel, chocolate. Heavy, cooked raisin note. Medium-light smoke component that is noted with a thoughtful nod but is not overbearing. Lightly phenolic Belgian yeast hints beneath it all.

Taste: Well-toasted grains wrapped in a little bit of caramel and chocolate. Subtle sweetness falls out quickly. Raisin dusted with ground coriander seed. An integrated smokiness followed by a nibble of pear. Earthy spiciness on the drying, lightly smoky finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While I would prefer a bit more sustained sweetness, it is fairly decent and nicely walks the line between its Belgian and smoke qualities.

On-tap at Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is clear dark amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of smoked malts but also has notes of Belgian yeast and hints of sweet malts. The smoked flavors are a bit stronger in the taste compared to the smell.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer uses Belgian yeast but really borders along the lines of a German rauchbier with its aromas and flavors of smoked malts.
