look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint.

A--Deep burnt caramel, almost chestnut shell body. If this beer were a crayola it would be burnt sienna. Head is one finger of thick white cream that retains to a skim and laces. Good looking beer.

S--A touch of smoke and bacon. But then there's like a brown sugar or munich malt toffeish hint. The smoke is present but not overwhelming--definitely not crowding out the aromas of unsmoked malt.

T--Very similar to the nose, almost an exact replica, in fact. More bacon and hickory smoke, with a hint of maybe sausage, up front. But it's not the whole profile, as the middle is like a light scottish ale--has that sweet syrupy maltiness that, again is brushed aside before it gets tiring on your tongue. Because there's healthy hop bitterness on the finish, which melds beautifully with the smoke to concoct this awesome bitter chocolate and cigar wrapper ending. Definitely an American recipe. I dig it.

M&D--Mouthfeel is creamy, perfectly carbonated. Alcohol's completely hidden. Very warming, comforting beer that's well-named.

Good replacement for a fireplace in my little Brooklyn apartment. A sweet treat for cold weather--very easy drinking for those who want a mild smoked beer.
