Just tapped at the brewery’s taproom. Sampled on draught, pours a semi-hazy orange brown colored brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipated and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma is smoked pork jerky, some traces of apple or beachwood, and some west coast-calber citrusy hops. Taste is full bodied, average carbonation with flavors of smoked pork jerky, light apple, grapefruit, and a touch of earthy spice. Finish has a medium hop aftertaste that lasts a little longer than the smoked malt flavor. An Americanized hopped smoked brown ale with German malt/yeast ingredients is best way to describe this special test release.

Draft. Smoked ham, barley malt and hay aroma. Hazy amber with large head. Sweet smoked ham, malt, and lightly bitter herbal hay flavor. Nice body. Very tasty.

Tao. Aroma of smoke and taste is sweet. Reminds me of maple bacon. Not over powering.

This is right in Hammeheart’s wheelhouse. Even if it’s not a Top 5 style of mine, I can appreciate talent when I taste it. Pours a nice bright, deep orange. Perfect if you’re in the mood for a smoked beer. Wood, leather, smoked jerky, some leather, more wood, and so forth. Am I manly enough for this creation?

ABR 2014. Good rauch beer, with lots of smoke in the flavor and aroma. Not complex; it doesn’t need to be. This is what I expect from a smoked beer.

Sampled at ABR 2014. Smoked Oktoberfest. Hazy orange. Smoked meat in this. Another great smoked beer from the area’s leader in smoked beers.
