A: Dark hazy brown. Subtle goldenness.
S: Smelled just like a farm but not offputting to me. Have you ever been to the county fair? And you walk in the room where they have all the show pigs? It smelled like that. And it wasn't just me, like three other people I was with said the same thing.
T: Tasted like the smell. Not a very complex taste but unique indeed.
M: Sat alright. A little too bubbly and a little lingering bitterness.

Overall an ok brew. It had a unique taste but it didn't really compliment anything else in the beer leaving it overall only slightly above average.

Appearance: dark amber in color with some golden highlights on the glass edge. A short 1/4" head lingers around a while.

Smell: smokiness is dominant with some softer caramel gets picked up by the nose.

Taste: caramel and a bottled liquid smoke flavor that seems a bit overdone. The beer is sweet with only a mild bitterness that doesn't balance it out enough.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp at the start, smoother towards the finish. Long lasting smoke filled aftertaste.

Overall: this beer was a bit tough to finish as the beer came across for me as unbalanced. Slow sipping.
