S – I can smell ripened cherries and plums from a few feet away. On the nose, I don’t get any smokiness at all. There’s this really nice belgian strong ale..sort of La chouffe / Duvel nose on it. I get Ommegang yeast as well. This Belgian weird tart farmhouse character.
T – First off, tart cherries and figs. Followed by an intense liquid smoke, malty oaky sort of chewiness. I hate smoked beers but it’s still mild compared to some smoked beers I’ve had. finish is tart and sour again which is nice.
M – Medium body, high carbonation.
O – This isn’t a bad beer. It’s quite nice..minus the smoke.
