a-Dark brown/black
s- don’t remember…but nothing remarkable
t- roastiness followed by a light smokiness. Earthy hops. I think I had this brew a couple of years back and remember it to be just a bit more smoky (to my liking) than this.
m- medium
o – eh, not bad, but nothing remarkable.

Very slow to rise two finger head, but what does rise, has great staying power. Brew is thick and rich black. Moderate lacing too.

Deep smokey bacon aroma. Salty. I am not a fan of smokey brews, but the aroma on this one is killer. Chocolate, meaty, bready.

A very unique and different brew for being a heavily smoked brew. I'm typically not a fan of smokey beers, but this one is very different. It's well-blended, hearty, roasty, well (lightly) smoked, salty, airy, earthy, lots of crystal and caramel. Heavy amount of milk chocolate. Dry well placed smoke. Carbonation is thin, prickly, and pillowey. Sweetness is tamed and smoothed into great dry bitterness without being over done.

It's a medium smoked beer, but drinks with the best of them, plus the smoke doesn't dmoinate, at all. One of the best brews I've ever had from Lefthand. Dare I say highly recommended? $2/12oz... I may be back for more.
