Smokey, malty, sweet aroma. Crystal clear deep amber. The smokey flavor lives up to its namesake but is not a nice balance in this beer. The malt flavor and body are too light. It would be a much better fit in a porter with deep roasted malts.

Smells like a great smoked meat!

Color: Amber body with an off-white head, moderate carbonation--head fades to a glimmer with little lacing in about a minute.

Mouthfeel: perfect and smooth

taste: Astringent with a fluffy, smoky finish that teases and lingers.

Overall, this is a brilliant beer! I want one in the summer and spring when I'm grilling--why don't I have some brats with me right now?
