Bottle. Woody, smokey aroma with licorice. Flavor has fat bacon, smoke, beechwood. Smoky and hopbitter aftertaste. A huge taste bomb, there is nothing refined and balanced in this beer, but it is certainly a tasty and very interesting one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours an effervescent, dark reddish body with a small, fizzy off-white head.
Smell: Intensely smokey, meat-laden nose with hints of wood and fire-roasted juniper berries.
Taste: Dark caramel flavor and sweetness that’s smothered with a ton of smokiness and wood. Mmm, thick-cut bacon. Charred juniper berries and mint. Christmastime potpourri blend. Hint of yeast. Finshes dry, with an herbal bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated, kinda fizzy actually.
Drinkability: I hope you like your beers smokey!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy brown-red with a big-bubbled light khaki head. Moderate meaty smoke aroma with some spice. The juniper is more apparent in the taste, with the smoke and juniper combining to form a nice smoky earthy flavor, like someone tossed a piece of charred fragrant wood into my beer. And I mean that in good way.

Pours a dark red/brown and a beautiful beige head. Campfire, smoke, a tad bit of bacon, citrus, light fruit, and a hint of chocolate. Also some bitterness and pine. I really enjoyed this stuff.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is smoky like it should be with some toasted malt. The appearance is deep copper orange with a large tan head. The flavor is like the aroma and not as overpowering as some smoke beers. The palate is thick. This is a well made beer but not my style.
