3.43/5 rDev -4.7%
I took this one home with me from New Hope. Pours a clear golden color with a very thick off white colored heading. Leaves some lacing but goes just about completley flat towards the end.
Smell is of smokey wood with a nice wheat malt aroma to balance. Slightest bit of citrus lemon.
Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. Smokiness is a little heavy for the beverage to the point to were it just dominates the taste. Slightest wheat grain taste that finishes a little sweeter than I antcipated.
Mouth is kind of watery,a little flat not much carbonation at all middle to end like drinking a flat beer. lighter bodied.
Drink is ok a nice tasting beer but a little overdone in some areas. Not really a session beer for myself a little too smokey sweet.

I got this on-tap on 2/9/2008 at the New Hope Triumph. They served it to me in a curved pint glass. It poured a light mahagony brown that had a small head of white foam. This head of foam quickly dissipated into a small white film and streaks of white lace. It had a heavy smoky aroma of smoked meats, olives, smoked malts, and smoked beechwood. The taste was also heavly smoked with olives, smoked malts, smoked meats, smoked beechwood, but this time in finished off with a spatter of roasted hops. It was a medium bodied beer that had a heavly smoked aftertaste of smoked meats, olives, and smoked beechwood. It there is a flavor that can be smoked, it was in here. I had this one at the Triumph in Princeton and it's basically the same thing. It's nice to see that 2 different Triumph brewpubs in 2 different states have some consistency.

The beer poured a nice golden brown with a bit of white head. The aroma was strong and smokey, and advertised what you were getting right up front. The taste delivered a strong smoked malt taste with a hoppy finish. The beer had a medium body and was a bit oily, but did have a dry finish. I had to lower the drinkability as from my perspective this is a niche beer. It's not one I woud frequently order, not because I disliked it, but the strength of the tastes and experience were such that I would be challenged to find the right place to bring it in. I do suspect that it would go well with sweet barbeque as it would be a nice counterpoint.
