3.3/5 rDev -12.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
From a 12 oz. bottle with a little amoeba looking creature on it... the beer pours a hazy reddish amber. There is a slight off-white head that last for about a 10 count and it's gone. No lace, just some tiny bubbles around the edge.
Aroma is surprisingly low in smokiness. In fact, if it didn't say this was a smoked beer in the description, I'd have a hard time picking our any smoked character. As it is, since I know to look for it, there is a just noticeable hint of smoke, but mostly malt -- toffee and some nuttiness.
Flavor is also almost devoid of smoke. Mostly malty with the toffee as predominant. Some fruity notes. Very little hop presence. Some alclohol notes. Finishes towards sweet side.
Mouthfeel is rather thin for the style, probably affected some by the low carbonation.
Overall, a decent beer. Not one I'd rush out to get again, but I'd try it, especially if I could get it on tap to see if there was any difference in the character.
