On-tap at the brewery in Placentia. Served in a tulip.

Seal brown, opaque body with a buff color crescent of foam around the rim. Vague retention, though the bubbles linger. No lacing or even legs.

Aroma is well integrated, and surprisingly light. Tobacco, roast malt, coffee, cocoa, butterscotch, and notes from their signature yeast strain.

Sweet and deeply malty - chocolate, cherry, brown bread, loam, vanilla, and light smoke on the palate. A little tart in the finish - bright and fruity with a final whisper of ash.

Medium-bodied, creamy, warming, but not hot (even at 13%!). Mellow tannins, no astringency.

Smoke and coffee are both present but very subdued - the well balanced stout-like base beer is unique, potent, and a treat on its own though, which saves the overall impression.

Had this at The Bruery Tasting Room alongside other Smoking Wood variants (Blueberry, Mole). This was my favorite- reminded me of Goose Bourbon County Coffee. Cold-brew coffee, roastiness, toasted beans, some sugar... beautiful.
