We house-smoke North Carolina six-row barley over hickory wood, imparting a sweet, subtle smoke to our hickory-smoked brown porter. Depending on your comfort level with smoked beers, you may find Hogwash subtle or overwhelming. Try it with North Carolina barbecue for some smoke-on-smoke action, or go for the Trifecta of Awesome: bacon, beer, and chocolate!
Availability: year-round, draft only for now. 5.4% ABV.

Dark brown in the glass. This is beyond very smokey, it is liquid smoke. Not much flavor beyond that. A very interesting beer, but not easy to drink.

Enjoyed a growler full with great people in Indianapolis.
Nice smoky nose with a hint of sweetness. Hickory.
Appearance was a bit light for a porter.
Taste was nice and smoky with a faint sweetness. Kinda how I like my ribs. Not a lot of porter flavors but the flavors were still good.
Palate was touch thin but still went down smooth.
Overall a really good beer that was more interesting than a lot of the run of the mill beers that a lot of places are turning out. Nice work!
