ok, i tapped it about 6 days early, rough week/day at work.

i think it's close, really damn close.

it has an awesome brown head and pours beautifully from the keg. slightly under-carbed at this point but it's still delicious. i take back what i said about the smoked malt, it's just fine. i think when tasting it in the primary while it's at room temp it comes through more, now that it's chilled it's much more subtle.

this beer will without a doubt become part of my rotation. i'm gonna do the side/side with Tumbler when the g/f is home next week, then i'll update.

Hows the color between, yours and a Tumbler?

color looks black when in a large glass. i poured it tonight into a 6 oz tasting glass and it is definitely a dark brown. i might be a hair darker than Tumbler but i can't say for certain until i do the side by side.

also, i should say that the head and head retention is fantastic. lacing all the way down the glass and the head stay at about 1/2" all the way down.

This looks fantastic. I had a Tumbler for the first time Friday without having heard about it before and it really impressed me. To me, it was like 50% brown and 50% ESB. I didn't even percieve the smoke flavor, but it did have a nice, round complexity. I think I'll try this next myself.

I'd use the Magnum for bittering adjust for the higher AA% and the Willamette for flavor and aroma

I brewed this in late sept, but IMO cut the smoke in half even 6oz. and add 1/2 lbs of pale to make up for it. I used 8oz of smoked and it was extreme, smoke at first its mellowing out now, but I cant imagine how long it take to mellow out a lbs of smoked malt.

what smoked malt did you use? i used Weyerman and it was subtle. i know there are a few brands at my LHBS and they range from mild (Weyerman) to extreme (cherry smoked).
