The Smoke Monster

The Smoke Monster

Smoked Amber Ale - 5.5 Gal - 5.3% ABV - 37 IBU - 14 SRM

In the days before streaming, we would all sit by the TV and watch a 42 minute program spread out over an hour. One of the final shows to be extremely popular during this format was 'Lost'. If you haven't watched it, go check it out! Seasons 1-3 were utterly fantastic. A common foe of the characters in the show was the Smoke Monster. It would swell up out of nowhere and devour some poor ship wrecked survivor.

Enough of the preamble though, let's talk about the beer! It is full bodied, with brash hints of smokiness that is balanced by the big malt profile. The 37 IBUs of hops keep all those flavours in check, resulting in a very well balanced beer.
