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

from a recent trade with rajendra82.

if there was a category to score appearance/quality of bottling I would mark it down notably - the wire cage on the cork is screwed far too many times and far too tight, and the small loop at the end BREAKS OFF when I begin untwisting it. Left Hand should seek guidance for how to bottle/cage corked beers, or maybe just buy some in a grocery store and see how almost every other brewer in the western world is able to handle this challenging task.

with wire cutters, a quick tug and the cork almost flies out, though beer does not overflow. Pours with a huge head, like 75% of glass volume. this beer is opaque and smells like (wood) smoke. bottles notes that the malt is smoked with 'several hardwoods.' smoke level in nose approaches that in some smoked jerky products. I cannot get much else out of the beer from the smell at this point.

taste is (once again) smokey, with dark roasted malt in the background of a very heavy blanket of smoke in the mouth. this continues into the finish and aftertaste, to such a degree that it might be the smokiest beer I have had that remained pleasant and drinkable.

finally well into the aftertaste some hints of malt start becoming prominent. the alcohol is invisible in this brew.

if smoke is your thing, try this beer!
