"Chestnut colored, full bodied. This doppelbock has all the bready goodness I expect from the style with a not-as-subtle-as -advertised smoke aroma and flavor...which was awesome. Great new beer, I’d definitely get this often if I could."

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark amber under a thick and sticky foamy off beige head. The nose smells of peppered bacon and toast and damp wood. Big flavor of meaty grease and smokey camp wood with some burnt toast crust and sweet earthiness. It’s not as smokey as some other smoked beers, so it’s a bit more agreeable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from tap to glass. Dark copper head with light tan head. Atoms is smoke, caramel, straw, hickory. Mouthfeel is great with moderate body and good carbonation, taste is sweet initially with a tannic following and umami finish, overall this is a wonderful smoked brew that isn’t too overpowering!
