The aroma is of slight roasted and sweet malt notes. There is a smokiness thats not in your face but defiantly making sure you know that it is present. Also what i feel may be a earthy woody hop aroma at the end of the aroma that may or may not be trickery on part of the smokiness and smoked malt in the beer.
Pours a beautiful deep mahogany color with a thick head that dies down to a dusting.
The taste is very well balanced and smooth in the beginning, a good medium body up front and a malt backbone with some caramel and roasted notes that lead the way into a perfect balance of the smoked character in the middle that carries through to the end where you get a medium to light semi dry slightly sweet finish that does not overwhelm you like some other smoked style beers maybe being a little to heavy on smoke or other aspects of the beer. Their is little to know hop detection in the flavor and a very restrained amount of bitterness. This one for all that it is can very easily become a session beer it really is a perfect blend of everything in the beer and nothing is out of tune.
more of this should be made SOON!
