Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear but deep red/amber hue with a decent little off white head.
Aroma is mostly caramel malt, witha hint of smokiness from the peat-smoked malt. But overall it doesn't have the strongest aroma.
Almost surprisingly where this beer lacks in aroma it more than makes up for in flavor. This beer comes in with a medium to full bodied but big smoky flavor. Caramel malts and even some light earthy hops show through for excellent balance in the extensive smoky finish. Soft and somewhat creamy mouthfeel make it an easy drink. I enjoyed it but I don't know if I would necessarily consider this my style.
