Big Butt Smoked Dark Ale

C'est What? is one of Toronto's can't miss beer bars, but they also brew an interesting array of ales. Big Butt Smoked Dark Ale is a fine offering. I enjoyed a pint on tap at C'est What?  A cask ale, it arrived a dark ruby colour with a thin ring of cream-coloured head. BBSDA has a really wonderful aroma: licorice and campfire smoke. A very smooth mouthfeel builds to a nice bitterness at the close. The beer tastes as it smells--smokey with considerable aniseed.  The finish is a bit toasty.
 According to the menu, the Big Butt Smoked Dark Ale clocks in at 5.8% and 33IBUs.
This is a tasty, smooth and intriguing beer.  If you're in Toronto and thirsty for something different, I recommend dropping by C'est What? for a pint.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
