Best by December date on it, not sure if it is 2006 or 2007 since i bought it March 1 2007
This beer poured a fruitwood color with reddish/orange highlights, crystal clear and well carbonated. An off-white tannish head sat on top, very thick and dense, a sticky creamy feel was to the touch and seemed to last for some time. She produced a sheet like lace that slowly broke apart as it slid down the glass. The aromas that came from the glass were soft in smell, detections of some fruit, and sweet malts came to nose. I did notice small waves of smoke but these were few and far between. Not an overly impressive aroma - soft. The tastes that came from the glass were not "in your face - especially compared to other smoke beers". Tastes of soft fruits (apples, apricots) were noticable, sweet malts, a tad lemony hop arose a few times and again a low lying smoke seemed to be present, ut severly understated, the swollow ended with more apples and malts. Not really an aftertaste, again I noticed some smoke that seemed to be there, but not as I would have liked. She started off realitively chewy and thick in the first sip, but seemed to thin alittle as I drank. A simple beer good to drink, but not sure if it should be classified as a "smoke" considering there was little smoke involved. I can honestly say I have not had a beer like this before.
