3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Deep brown body with a frothy beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of burnt wood, smoke, roasted malts alcohol, chocolate, earthiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sweet malt malt flavor backs up peppery alcohol and bitter hops and acidic roasted malts. Light smoke, light ashiness thrown in. Nice that these are not overwhelming. A sweet doppelbock with roast and smoke.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man, 4/12/13
Aroma: The nose of this one had lots of sweet malts, smoky notes, wood, and a bit of earth
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish color with a small beige head and some light lace
Flavor: The flavor is more smoky than nose, but otherwise, the components are very similar
Palate: It has a medium body, a pretty solid mouthfeel, and a dry, smoky finish on the mouth
This one was more on the smoke malt side of the style than the bacon side of the style. Overall, I found this one to be quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co. displaying a deep, ruby highlighted mahogany, with off white head foam that quickly reduced to a thin ring & film, but left some clingy, etched-like lacing on the glass. The aroma was smoked ham, sausage, and spice, in lieu of a visit to an old fashioned butcher shop. The flavor was similar, plus dark fruit notes, and a hint of leather. Medium bodied, softly carbonated, and a little syrup/stickiness to the texture, I found this much more approachable and mellow after it warmed for awhile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/29/13. On tap at Kickback?s. Amber red copper pour with a small khaki head that lasts but barely laces. Nice smoke character with a good dose of sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is along the same lines - obvious smoke, but not overwhelming in any way - with a nice caramel sweetness. In a way, it reminds me of sweet barbecue. I actually dig it!
