Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Sample at The Ohio Taproom. Dark brownish-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that dissipates gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked meat, malt and coffee. Medium-bodied with flavors of smoked bacon, charred malt and mild coffee. The finish is smoky with a burnt malt aftertaste. A little too far into barbecued meat territory for me, so pretty average in my opinion.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Medium nut brown color with little to no head, some lacing. Some smokiness, but it is fleet and covered up by sweetness. As someone who has worked with smoked meats for over a year something seems off, more of a liquid smoke character than actual smoke . The alcohol is also prevalent in the aroma. Taste is sweet, roasted malts with a sticky residue. Its OK, a novice introduction to smoked beers as it lacks the punch of a rauch-style beer..

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Sample at the Listermann tasting room on 9/13/13. Clear brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of crystal malts and ham. Malty and caramelly flavor along with notes of maple and ham before a semi-sweet finish.

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Draft sample at StarkBier Fest at Listermann Brewing Company on March 23, 2013. Dark coffee-like hue, strong smoky aroma with some sweet malty notes, STRONG smoky flavor with a bit of malt as well. The big smoky taste is very well done--stops short of being overbearing. Not exactly sessionable but a beer I wouldn’t mind having every once in a while.

Dal9000 (163) - Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Tasted at Alefest 2013. I love the Listerman's beer. This one was the perfect combination of coffee and smoke. This was a sipping beer that would be great on a fall day. I didn't taste the bacon that others claimed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

The aroma of this beer was of bacon and roasted coffee. It tasted like a good rauch beer and reminded me a lot of that style.

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured on draft at the source. Pours a darker brown to amber with a beige head of foam. Aroma has nice smoked bacon and roasted coffee. Taste is really smoky. Love that. Good stuff.

shigadeyo (2973) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

11/08/2010: Listermann Friar Bacon Smoked Bock Beer... Aroma: Weak fruity smoke and applesauce. Appearance: Cloudy, tarnished gold to dull orange in color; thin, off-white crown. Flavor: Smoked apple cider with a watery apple juice and strange chemical aftertaste. Palate: Medium-light, thin; very, very low carbonation. Overall: YUCK!

22 fl. oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #22 for this beer.

ReggieDunlap (3007) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours a murky ruby/brown with a medium off white head...nice color. Aroma is fruity with light smoke. Flavor has mild fruit, earthy bitterness, and lots of smoke. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with an earthy/smoky dry finish.
