Pours a dark ruby-brown with a very short, quickly dissipating, light tan head. Smoky and moderately malty nose. Rich and full mouthfeel. Very smoky and bacons flavors. Enough sweetness in the malt to balance the smokiness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Vineyard, Belfast. Looks almost like a stout, but with a thinner head. Aroma is smoked cheese to me, kind of thin taste at the very start then a very full bodied palate of, well, smokiness. An unusual brew, would definitely try again (maybe the Marzen too) but not all of the time...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brownish red beer, medium to small retentive tan head. Malty and smokey nose with tarry and bacony notes. Flavor is smoke, sweet notes, malt, wood, tar, bacon. Hoppy bitterness, caramel and malt in the finish with thick and meaty smoke. This one lays on the smoke and bacon pretty thick, although the body is suprisingly light. Mouthfeel, on the other hand, is oily.

Finish is sweet, bacon and dry bitter. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: great brew, but I may actually prefer märzen.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Marrón muy oscura, abundante espuma ocre, muy duradera, bonita. Estupendo aspecto. Aroma tremendo. Barbacoa, no es humo, es carne ahumada. En boca la textura es excelente, cremosa. Y el sabor único, con base de caramelo y ese tono ahumado, madera, que puede gustar o no, pero que hace una cerveza diferente, y para mi magnífica. Pide salchichas, y con ellas es insuperable.
