Consumed December 30th, 2013 at the brewery.

Appearance: clear medium amber. A little lighter than expected for the style. Creamy, nitro-driven head provides nice sheeting and clings to the sides.

Aroma is smoky and peaty; think Highland scotch.

Flavor is smoky as well. Very smoky, in fact. Nitro may have muted other flavor character, since there is only a little sweet malt aside from the smoke.

Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy.

Smoke bomb.
