On tap at Brauhaus Schmitz in Philly. Dark ruby red color. Small beige head. Wonderful smoked malt aroma, redolent of oak and burnt caramel. Flavor is more of the same. Sweet smoky malt with dark caramel and oaky notes. Spicy hops in finish. Very earthy and flavorful. Delicious!

Bottle. Surprised they started bottling this. Copper/brown pour with a small thick head that fades to a ring. Aroma is all smoked ham and bacon. Very cool. Tastes the same really. All smoked pork with just maybe a hint of campfire in the finish. Pretty neat beer but I think I was expecting more.

Black brown colour. Smell of a smoke, roasted malts. Taste is for me unusual, namely I need almost half a bottle to get used of it. But is still strange for me because of strong presence of smoked pork in aftertaste.
