COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huron is a smoked dopplebock. It is a stronger version of our standard dopplebock and includes over 30% cherry-smoked malt in the grain bill. A pleasant smoky aroma greets you as you tip your glass for that first sip. Huron is a full-bodied beer with strong malty and smoky flavors. This beer benefited from the 7 months of aging it received. Enjoy your beer journey around the Great Lakes, the source of 21% of the world’s fresh water!

Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Oh the smoke, it burns, it burns! I like smoked beers. One of my highest rates is a smoked beer. But I could not finish the 2 oz pour of this guy. Pitch black, with a dark tan head that is gone quick with no lacing. Overpowering smoke on the nose, nothing else is clawing through that. Flavor isnt quite so bad, some actual flavors there, earthy, a bit of burnt caramel. Dial back on the smoked malt next time...

At Winterfest ’11. Dark brown almost black pour, no head. Aroma was huge, huge smoke, almost medicinal, to an excessive point. Taste was not nearly as intense smoke, but a big overpowering smoke lead to some slight medicine, peat, and sweet caramel in the background.

The twelfth beer I sampled at Winterfest 2011 in St. Paul on 2-4-11. Approximately 2 oz. pour. Pours a hazy, dark copper with a small amount of beige head. Nice, smoky aroma. Dry taste of campfire smoke. Reminds me of an Aecht Schlenkerla. Juice and bacon flavors. Interesting finish that is hard to peg. Undercarbonated (likely due to being served from an open bottle).

badgerben (4363) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Minnesota Winterfest 2011. Dark red color with no head. Bombastic smoke aroma, destroying everything else. Backs off only slightly in the taste. Turns slightly medicinal and almost peaty. Strong malt character.
