12 oz. bottle from the brewmaster's collection, poured into a working glass.

The ale is a clear, dark brown capped with a rocky, tan head that falls to a light covering and leaves heavy sheeting and semi-rings as it descends. The nose is nearly all sweet malts, some toffee and notes of banana esters. Not too heavy or dark in the nose. The taste is full of similar malty sweetness with lots of caramel, light toffee. The fruity notes are absent from the taste, and the smokiness comes through distinctly, but not unbalanced. Bitters are very low and more of a bite comes from medium levels of carbonation. Mid-high mouthfeel. Slightly sweet and smokey aftertaste with lingering roasted notes. Alcohol is noticeable in the mouth as light tingling on the tongue, but not in the nose. Quite smooth and drinkable.
