A deeply malty brown ale featuring Cherrywood smoked Pale Malt, the toasty, malty flavors of brown malt, and balanced with Bravo and Mt Hood hops for a very traditional Northern Bavarian smoked beer. The beer is a deliberately malty product,with a firmly biscuity, toasty aroma that well carries that smoke imparted from the malt. A fantastic accompaniment with smoked meats, fish or cheese, this beer is a wonderful Autumn elixir on its own. A treat for the aficionado of classic styles, this product will have very limited distribution. Get it while you can!

Reviewed on tap at Great Lost Bear, Portland ME. As of today, currently from notes. In a pint glass. The appearance is a somewhat clear brown colored body with a film of a white head that quickly dissipated, some lacing clung to the sides of the glass. The smell has a super smoky meatiness coming through kinda like a "rauchbier" but not too much. The taste has a super smoky/roasty/meaty with the same aftertaste and a dry smoky finish. On the palate, it has a light to medium, probably not too sessionable, low carbonation sort of thing going on. Overall, I’m not sure if I should be reviewing rauchbiers, but this may be a smoked beer ....??? For the most part, I’m pretty sure I’d have this again.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 fantastic smoked malt aroma! assertive, but not over the top. just a slight burnt phenolic note, but it doesn’t really diminish the nice aroma. very clear, beautiful, amber/caramel color (like a märzen) with a mahogany tint. gorgeous color.. healthy head that last a good while. smoked malt flavor, much like the aroma -- assertive, not over done, with a slight burnt phenolic in the finish, that doesn’t detract from the beer seriously. med/light body. clean aftertaste. really great beer. def. my favorite long trail beer, now.

On tap at the Waterfront, New York on 9th July 2013. Clear copper with almost white film head. Smoky aroma with biscuit malts - the two flavours sitting well with each other. Exquisite in-mouth with rich woodsmoke meeting tangy citrus. Lasting smoky finish with delicate citrus notes; zingy mouthfeel and light body. One of my most enjoyed beers on US soil.

The aroma is smoke upfront, some sweet malt. The flavor is also smoked meats, bacon-y, and some malt, a little sweeter than the aroma. The appearance is a hazy red/brown. The finish is salty, smoky, little sweet. Not bad, not super interesting.
