Pours a hazy, brown-amber color. Topped by a creamy, beige head that leaves thick sheet of lace on the glass, and thins to a persistent film. The aroma is lightly bready with notes of dark fruit and caramel. Malty upfront with sweet caramel flavors, and a hint of smoke. As the beer moves across the palate a light bitterness appears and the smokiness becomes very strong. Highly carbonated, medium-bodied. A bit heavy. The smokiness is a bit overwhelming.
