COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a common deep brown color with glimmers of red shining through and a meager cap of foam on top. The aroma is uncommon, however, with a smoothly-blended combination of smoke, a bit of nuttiness, and a light malty sweetness. The flavor is even more distinctive, with quite a bit of caramel sweetness being consumed by a sweet, woodsy smokiness. The soft carbonation keeps the flavors from becoming syrupy and helps the beer glide across the tongue.

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!
