COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an extremely special edition release from Elevation in collaboration with The Rare Beer Club and Pints for Prostates, a 501c3 non-profit raising awareness of prostate cancer by reaching through the universal language of beer. A portion of the proceeds of every beer sold will go to help support the mission of Pints for Prostates. We hope that you share this special beer with friends and remind them that proper screening and early detection is the key to beating prostate cancer. Made in the tradition of the smoked beers of Bamberg, Germany, this beer is our first lager as well as the first smoked beer we have ever produced. Named Prostator in the German tradition of naming bocks with the suffix –ator, this beer hits the nose with notes of caramel, bread, and beachwood smoke. On the palate the smokiness melds with the caramel backbone and warmth of this big German Dopplebock making it the perfect combination of smoky and sweet.

JDBaker11058 (1204) - Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2013
Appearance: dark brown with rusty highlights, one finger of creamy tan head, average lacing. Aroma: smoky, obviously, with notes of caramel, pumpernickel, gingerbread, toffee, and leather. Taste: slightly sweet, with caramel, toffee, and toast, with spicy hops and a full thread of smoked meat underneath. Finish: clean, spicy, and smoky, with slight lasting sweetness. Notes: The smoke on this was more meaty and less camp fire-y, which is a winner in my book. Excellent body, with the smoked malts playing a supporting role to well-balanced sweet and spicy characteristics. Clean and fresh palate. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, and my 900th beer rated. Glad it was a good one for this milestone.

Pour on tap at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2012, dark black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought notes of smoked malts with some campfire, bacon type notes, some chocolate, coffee, roast, hints of dark molasses and slight dark fruits in there as well. Taste is very smoky, with campfire, roasted meat notes, hints of coffee, chocolate, espresso in there, slight spice, earth and dark fruit notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice.
