At Meadhall, Cambridge MA
Black with a grayish khaki head. Retention is wispy ring of foam. Served in a 12 Beers of Christmas glass.
One of the more inviting and complex smoke aromas I've had the pleasure to sniff. It's warm, beechy (I would have guessed birch though I don't know that I can differentiate different wood smokes but I'll pretend I can) and very inviting. Mildly charred roast malt to round out the nose.
Doesn't taste as smokey as it smells. It's enough but I love a smoke bomb. Not sure if it's the smoke or acid with the roast malt but there's a definite savory character to this beer.
Is Brooklyn hopping on George Martin's bandwagon or if there's a deeper reason for this beer's namesake? I get the Fire as symbolized by the smoked malt but what about the ice?
Serving type: on-tap
