Notes / Commercial Description:
Halloween? Dia de los Muertos? You know what that means? Ashes From the Grave is a Smoked American Brown Ale. This beer is an annual collaboration brewed with Bill Batten from AleSmith. The flavor is layered to provide a unique balance of roast, hoppiness and smoke with just a touch of sweetness. The beer is not aggressive with any one flavor, but the smoke will build as you progress through your pint.

Tap at Monkey Paw. Dark brown. Beechwood smoke with bread in the aroma. Touch of chocolate with some caramel and nuttiness. Flavor is a delicious blend of caramel, baked bread, and subtle smoke. Some nuttiness is evident. Great flavor. Chewy mouthfeel but not thick. I don't know how much of this i could drink, but after five ounces I've concluded this beer is stellar.

Seriously black in the pint shaker. Hints of bacon and last night's ash tray, but the smoke is subtle enough to be a pleasure. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel.

Schizophrenic taste of caramelized sugar and chared grain. Some stray sweet hints, more like a Laphroig liqueur if there was such a sweet, smokey thing. Nice aroma of winey toasted malts.

On tap at Pizza Port in Ocean Beach. Actually quite drinkable. I may have to give more respect to the Monkey Paw brews.
