brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 23, 2011
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a short lived off-white head. S: Very smokey aroma with a fairly evident rye smell. A light fruitiness hiding in the background with some roasted malts and a little bit of a salty character. Some charred wood in addition to the smoke. T: Lots of smoke and burnt wood flavor. Slightly salty and meaty with the same light fruit character. There is a bit of rye along with some toasted bread and roast. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: Perhaps a bit too much smoke and not really very balanced.

Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours a dark ruby brown with a slight beige head. Aroma is very smokey. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is smoky. Not exactly bacon, but close enough. Smoke tingles the tongue. Not all that much other than smoke. Slightly malty finish. Some treacle. Quite an experience.
