<<GUSHER WARNING!!>> 355mL thanks to ryan! Exploding bottle leaving a muddy, mahogany pour topped by big, yellowish foam. Nose is caramel, cookie, milk chocolate, red apple oxidation, county fair caramel apple. Taste is sour, lemon, very nice savory smoked salt, red wine acidity, bright berries. Probably one of those beers that was decent but now infected is quite delicious. Remember to don protective eye wear.

Bottle from 2008. Started gushing as soon as it was opened. Pours cloudy amber with a huge beige head. Aroma is apples, smoke, berries and sweet malts. Flavor is just a complete mess. Sours fruits manly. Beer was clearly infected. Drain pour.

12 oz. bottle shared by jckp64- thanks, John! 2008 bottle. Massive gusher. Pours a cloudy amber with an out of control beige head. Aroma shows some smoke on top of plums, apples, sour berries, and sweet malts and sugar. Gross flavor of sour fruits, sugar, faint smoked malts, rotten apples, and wet leaves. Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Clearly infected. Drain pour.

12oz bottle pours a totally transparent amber with one ring of spitty white head. Aroma is smoky bacon, sweet, candy, smells like my girlfriend’s bacon chapstick. Flavor is more tart than I expected. Cherries, bacon, apples. Finish is full bodied.

Big Thanks to Viggo for this one. A: Pours a nice amberish brown with a small tan head. No retention or lace. S: Nice light meaty smoke, hints of tart berry, and mild malts. T: This one is infected for sure... that being said its not undrinkable. Nice light meaty smoke. Lots of dark tart cherry juice, mild chocolate and more sourness.... dark tart berries. M: Medium in body, prickly carbonation, tart from start to finish. D: Not great. The infection is rather high and the sourness starts to wear on you rather quickly. That being said for an infected beer it is not too bad.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Tasted 7/24/09 at ratebeer tasting. Good clarity with aroma of burned rubber. Flavor dominated by durian fruit and smoke with intense finish reminiscent of re-digested jack rabbit poop.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle, xmas 2008, 20 months old. Pop of the cap and it starts bubbling, stops before I think it’s going to gush. First whiff is smoked meat and skunk. Flavor is metallic and sour, acidic and smoky. Hugely thick and chewy but surprisingly not boozy. Sweet, sour, meaty, overall pretty gross. Infected.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous hoppymeal poured into a tulip. I couldn’t help but notice all the talk about this one possibly being infected, so I’m going in with fairly low expectations. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a small cream-colored head that dissipates to a collar quickly and leaves only bits of lacing. The aroma is actually very good and the smoked malts and hickory come out very nicely with some caramel sweetness as well. There is definitely signs of infection with a slight tart cherry-like aroma. The tart cherry presence is much more prevalent in the taste and leaves me puckering slightly up front. As the tartness fades, the smoked hickory starts to come out and the finish is good, and probably what was intended with this beer. The mouthfeel is definitely lighter than I was expecting and pretty thin for the style. The carbonation is low and it’s slick and dry overall. Well, I guess this is about what I was expecting. There’s clearly a high quality beer hidden in there as the smoked malts are very pleasing in the nose and in parts of the taste. Unfortunately, this one is definitely infected and the tart cherry character is more distracting than beneficial in my book.

Bottle shared by ryan on 1/10/09: Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, off-white head. Aroma of lightly smoky German caramely malt with some acidic fruity notes. Body starts with some mild smoky malty character and lots of tartness throughout with some toasty caramel sweetness and light fruity esters. Definitely tastes infected or off to me, but seems like it would be a nice smoked doppelbock otherwise.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Big thanks to ogglethorp. Label says 2008. Pours a dark, hazy amber with a large creamy tan head, dissipates to an everlasting film and leaves a spotty lacing. Indifferent malty nose, caramel, maybe some chestnut. Big fruity flavor, all apricots and peaches up front, slightly tart and dry. Some caramel slips in towards the finish and slightly disagrees with the fruit. I’m not getting smoke, except as a little bit of licorice and ash on the linger. Tart fruit remains dominant throughout. Not at all what I was expecting from a smoked dopplebock, possibly infected, but if so, infected in a good way.
