A: Bright and rosy tan with thick white head.

S: Smoked bacon,  roasting sugar maple and little hints of yeasty bread. Smells like heaven!

T: "I feel like I got comp fire up my nose" -Aunt. Smoked malt, not bacon, very smoked.

M: Ash, dry and medium body

O: Oh no. That did not go over well. No sweetness or maple but as it dries out it turns to a smoldering camp fire. Not balanced. Great bottle though.
