Overall, a fantastic smoked beer. The body is a lighter than your standard smoked porters and the smoke itself is much richer and interesting. Right away I'm reminded of bacon and Scotch — something with a little cocoa like Lagavulin. There's a dry, roasted meaty finish with a hint of caramel. The aroma's heavy on the smoke, the flavor is wonderfully balanced.

Had this as part of a flight at Fullsteam Brewery.

Look: dark brown pour with a finger or so of light brown head
Smell: first thing I thought of when I took a whiff was "campfire", with faint dark chocolate & malt notes in the background
Taste: pretty clear hickory smoke flavor (but not so much that it's overwhelming), faint dark chocolate taste
Feel: medium/light body, moderate/heavy carbonation

Overall: this is definitely an interesting beer; I've never had anything similar to it at all. It was good & I enjoyed it, but I probably couldn't drink it regularly.
