The pour is a dark black color with some light brown colors around the edge. When held to the light there is a ruby hue to it as well. There is a nice frothy head that has a tan color that remains through out the tasting but does hide to the side of the glass.

The nose varies per beer but there is a nice malty essence to it. Smoke flavors are the most significant smell. The nose varies from a beef jerky to a very noticeable smoked salmon. Im not a big fish fan, so I didn't really appreciate it too much, but my wife had no problems taking it. So the smell is very unique in that aspect.

The taste varies just as much. Similar with the nose there is a malty backing and a salmon flavor that is very distinguishable. The salmon flavor did vary from very noticeable to a light hint in the background. If it was light there was more of a smokey presence. The malt balanced well with some light astringent malt in the backing. Very smooth overall and a somewhat hop backing. Although the hops play a minor role overall.

So with this review, it should be noted that I am not a "fishy" fan at all. So I will age most that I have and see how they do over time.
