I was at a local liqour store and mentioned my love of smoke style beers and they suggested I grab their last 6 pack of this. I am so glad they did. I am very impressed with this beer. While it is a smoke with that wonderful bacon taste, it seems to taste lighter than most smoke beers. It was chilled a little more than I would normally have it at, but what a treat on a warm summer day.

A-Deep malty molasses colors. Beautiful. Dark and mysterious.

S-clean yet smokey if that makes sense. It's intriguing. Kinda smells burnt, but in a good way.

T-a lot of smoke up front, followed quickly by an sweetness, much like maple syrup. Back of the palate has a little bit of hops. Looking back on the flavor, it really was like mellow hickory smoked maple syrup propped up by a solid but subtle hop backbone.

M-looks, smells, and tastes like it should be rich and thick, but it's not. It's simple, smooth and light. Goes down smooth and easy.

O-complex, unique, and unexpected. Great blend of flavors, and very satisfying. Could be a great beer all year long. Even in the summer, the lightness of the mouthfeel makes this a very enjoyable beer. I got this beer as a gift, and opened it with no preconceived notions, and was happily surprised with the results. Great beer, and it would be fantastic with some good bbq.
