look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color topped by an inch or so of foam; some lacing action

Smell: Slightly smoky and slightly fruity; somewhat biscuity

Taste: After a biscuity opening, the smoky/fruity tones come through; slightly bitter in the middle but the finish is balanced

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I was expecting a bit more from a smoked beer, frankly; this beer is easy to drink but it is lacking flavor to make it to the next level

perhaps overly smoked on this one, not autumnal and like the german rauchbiers mature in its smoke character, this one seems like walking into a burning home, too risky, too much at stake, overwhelming. even a big frothy red malt body with plenty of sweetness cant balance it out. the smoke aspect really needs to be dialed back a bit, i have to fight it to taste the base beer, rather than have it serve as an accent flavor. i think its cool though that it was made in a fire house and its a smoky red, but it is need of some serious refinement to be drinkable more than say half a pint, it really smoked me out, and i like these beers usually. i see the potential here, and will revisit this one eventually, but for now its a palate wrecker in a way i dont really care for.
