Corked and caged bottled on 9/28/11 and drunk on 12/6/13.

Pours with a slight head and a clouded ruby color. Even after 2 years, it still smells like a firepit, in a wonderful kind of way.

Time has done this beer a great deal of good, and it is nowhere near as one-dimensional as it was when I first had it. The taste is quite malty, with a touch of peated scotch. It ends dry.

Overall a nice example of the style.

A very drinkable smoked beer, with complexity. I think having for 1.5 years helped (note on bottle said 5 year shelf life). Smokey grey colour to it. Moderate smoke aroma. Smooth mouthfeel.Nutty, nicely crafted. Lasting small head on reddish hued body.
