Interstimg and complex.enough to.score well, but I can’t really say I would.want it again. Copper with a beige head. Sweet country ham and a campfire hits the nose. The taste is caramel candy sweet and smokey.

doublebock (499) - California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Copper color with beige foamy head. Aroma of bread and honey. Malty and slightly peaty with caramel, almonds and butterscotch. A very solid example of the style. Even though the beer claims to be "double smoked" it certainly does not overwhelm like many a Rauchbier.

Cybercat (3227) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Strong, rich aroma has notes of caramel, horehound, roast malt and quality coffee plus just a snip of semi-sweet chocolate. It pours a clear sienna, with not much head - but this may be because my sample was the dregs of the keg. Robust flavor has a core of roast malt and notes of caramel and horehound plus a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is firm and smooth, though lacking in fizz - but I’ll give it a break because, as I said, this was the last squirt from the keg. Maybe next autumn I’ll get a better sample.

dalekliz (860) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber-red with a white ring. Aroma of smoke, malt, meat, wood, and candied bacon. Taste of meat, malt, a hint of citrus, and wood. Lingering meaty malt. Hides the alcohol well. Different and tasty.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
bomber from Supermarket Liquors - Fort Collins. Nose is lightly smoked bacon, lightly burned candisugar, and some caramel. Clear rusty brown with a big, heavy lacing beige head. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, with light smoke and very light bitterness. Smooth as silk.

22 oz. Bomber. Nice dark amber color. Smokey smell and on tongue. Complex with usual bock undertones. Pretty decent.

wlajwl (3769) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Aroma is smoke, bread, malts, mild sweetness and a small hint of alcohol. The flavor is smoked malts/pork, mild nuttiness and a mix of sweet and tart in the finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of smoke, sticky sweet malts, caramel, molasses, dark fruits, brown sugar and some spice. Very dark deep red amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is full bodied with an soft/average level of carbonation. Overall a very sweet smoked brew but flavor and aroma were good. Nice beer.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Tap at brewery. Clearish ruby copper, with no lasting head. Aroma is of bread dough and sticky caramel, with some lager dustiness and smoked malt. Flavor was much the same--old world smoked maltiness, lagery doughiness, and a subtle caramel undertone. Didn’t really work for me.

jsquire (3400) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Brown color. Small beige bubbles on the surface. Dark sugar nose with some toasted grains. Big sweet beer with lots of caramel, some apple sweetness, and some toasted bread. Nice malty double bock.
