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!

144/204. Thanks Allen. A gorgeous ruby color. Sweet meaty smoked aroma. The body is very smooth with a well balanced smooth character

badgerben (4362) - 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.

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2011
This was plenty good. Hazy chestnut brown with red hues. Very smoky flavor, rich with band-aid and salami. Well rounded mouthfeel, balancing malts and alcoholic edge. An all around success, with big flavors and highly attractive qualities in every direction. (on tap at brewpub)

JK (4284) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2011
Winterfest ’11. I love smoked beers and this one did not disappoint. It was served from a bottle rather. Strong aroma of smoked grain and smoked wood. Medium sweet malt, and a very thick palate. One of the highlights of the festival

bluemooner (586) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Pours a clear, dark brown with no real head. Aroma is a lot of smoke with woody notes. Flavor is also quite smokey though sweet malt and almost a medicine tinge comes through as well. Medium bodied with some carbonation. This is a great, smokey brew,

some awesome great lakes area trade partner bonused me this beer, been waiting to crack it.... wow. bottle 174/204. big ass smokey brew here. pours like a brown ale but drinks like beef jerky extract. one of the better overly smoked brews ive had. pretty balanced considering the dominated smoke and meat presence. tastes like charred salami. seems like this would be a 5.0 in a smoke geeks ratings. has super meaty mouthfeel and finish, chewiest ive had straight up. crazy stuff. i can enjoy half this bomber, but im not a smoke head so that will be about it for me.

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).

Tap at Fitger’s on Nov. 17, 2011. Mostly clear chestnut brown pour with a smaller head. Aroma of smoked meat. Medium palate. Taste is peat, smoke, and meat. Awesome beer.
