3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Pours a hazy deep amber color with a small head. Great lacing on the glass. Smoky malts and meaty aromas. Moderate levels of smoked malts, with some bacon, brine, light grassy hops and light wood notes in the flavor. Good mouthfeel and balance. This was the best beer of the sampler by far.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Bull Falls brewery taproom in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a dark opaque cola brown colored brew with a creamy beige head that slowly dissipates leaving some excellent lacing. Aroma of bacon and smoked pork jerky, a hint of chocolate malt and some light floral hops. Taste has a touch more smoke and pork jerky flavor, medium to full bodied, quite smooth and easy on the palate. Finish continues a lingering smoked pork jerky with a hint of mild bitterness.
