Light haze on this amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Smooth soft palate, airy. Sweetish malt, come cream. Trace of oxidised caramel. Very mellow smoke, barely there. Light dried fruits and lactose. Finishes dry. A tasty and sweetish beer.

Brown pour, fairly flat with some smoke and a little vinous. Its good, but a little lacking.

Brown pour no head. Sweet sticky flavors, smoke, some sherry wine, oxidation is present but works ok enough.

12oz bottle, been sitting in my cellar for quite a while. Pours a dark amber color with very little head and lots of chunky yeasty protein. Aroma is very oxidized, sherry. Medium to heavy on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, smokey, oxidized, caramel, nutty, toast. Definitely over the hill, but interesting to try it after almost 7 years. The smokiness is still there.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! Pour is hazy copper with a ton of floaters. Caramel, toffee, light smoke, bread, and cardboard in the aroma. Taste is dark fruits, toffee, caramel, red licorice, light oxidation, cardboard, and biscuit. Light body with soft carbonation. Definitely past its prime, but hard to believe it is 12%.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a clear orangish brown appearance with a small white head with a ton of sediment. Oxidized, caramel, cardboard, lightly smoked, a touch fruity aroma. Fairly drinkable beer but its pretty dull, caramel, bready, toffee, mild banana, paper flavor. Drinkable but too old in general.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear red pour with no head, aroma brought notes of lots of caramel, toffee, slight smoke but its fairly hidden, slight oak, toffee, dark fruits, red fruits, pretty oxidized though. Taste is caramel, slight spice, hints of earth, grapefruit, slight red fruits and dark fruits with raisin, especially the green variety, finishing very sweet.

Sweet NG score from GhostFace, thanks again Neal!!! 12oz bottle pours up with an amber body supporting a tan colored head of foam. The aroma has pleasing bacon like sweet apple maltiness that slips and slides smooth with smokiness. If you like ‘em with a moderate amount of rauch then this one will be very very inviting at this point. OK, here goes. The taste is pretty rich with malt sweetness, sweet red apple wedge esteriness and then firm levels of bacony smoky love. This really hits the spot. Yes!

Back to an old ratting. Smoke and booze on the nose, but SMOKE and metal on the tongue. Way to much smoke for me seems unbalanced. No thank you.

12oz bottle, four pack from Eastside Liquors in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. What a strange brew! Clear copper color with a dense foamy white head. Aroma is ridiculous, an extremely smoky bacon blast overcoming all of the more subtle undertones. Flavor is similar, with a smack of liquid smoke, followed by salty, fatty bacon and a sharp finish of spicy rye. It’s good, but it’s a mind-bending beer.
