4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask - Max’s. Clear amber, fluffy white head. Deep campfire smoke aromas ride softer undercurrents of oak and sweet maple coated dark fruit. Rich smoky wood flavors round with swirls of sweet and salty barbequed meat throughout. Medium bodied with pillow soft carbonation. Fantastic, but one is plenty…

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
New Beer Distributors 500ml ($5): Pours a white head over a light amber body. Half of the beer is the aroma, which is smoky like no other. The oak smoke is I think somewhat smokier than the beech used in the other beers by Aecht. Also in the aroma you get the meat and if you wait around long enough a few hoppy notes. Taste is also extremely smoky while its cold, but as it warms up the hoppy and sweet notes start to become apparent. This is a very intense beer, and for uniquely different reasons than why most beers are intense. Tingly mouthfeel, but also coats the entire inside of the mouth.

Bottled@SBWF2010. Deep amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma is smoke, some bacon, mild notes of oak and some slight maltyness. Flavour is quite much the same in a very nice balance with some slight notes of alcohol showin as well. Quite interesting.

Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear brownish amber, no head. Heavily smoky nose with plenty of bacon and oak. Sweet and full bodied with solid well rounded mouthfeel. Big time smoke flavour. Nice maklt character without any edges. The oak smoke is in fact nearly as good as the beechwood smoke. Great stuff!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a pale brown with a small head. It smells like smoke, cured meats, saltwater, and hickory. It reminds me of bacon or hickory smoked barbeque. The flavor is sweet and salty, with a smooth bitter finish. It has a medium body and an unremarkable palate. I enjoyed this beer, but mostly for the novelty. It is a strange flavor in a beer, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it as bacon-flavored beer.

7/14/10. On tap. Huge malty and salty beef jerky aroma with an underlying fruitiness in there. Initial sweet fruitiness followed by obvious smoked meats and bacon, with nice hoppy bitterness to boot.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a dark amber color with a small beige head. The aroma was dry and woody without a whole lot more going on. The flavor was sharply woody with notes of oak and hickory. There were undertones of nut, honey and fruity hops. The finish was long, dry and woody. Medium body. The alcohol was well hidden. Disappointing.
