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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Brouwers; served clear copper with thin white head; lovely light cream and dry smoked malt with oaky dryness and vanilla cookies; not harsh at all; light texture with smooth, rich smoke, campfire and oak; unexpectedly lovely; just so damn rich and drinkable without being a mess of bacon and dirty smoke; am I starting to grow up with the recent enjoyment of smoked beers?
