12 ox brown bottle poured into a SA perfect pint. The beer is mahogany with amber highlights. There is just a skim of a beige head.

There is wood smoke, malts and a hint of band aids on the nose.

The taste leads with smoke, kind of reminds me of a smoked landsjager or other hard sausage. There is a trace of sweetness and some bready malts. The bandaid thing is way in the back ground thank goodness. The smoke is the thing here but the base beer is not lost in the mix.

The mouth is decent and maybe slightly over carbonated.

I think this one is pretty tasty and may be a great beer to introduce folks to the style.
