Better beer than I expected. Nice bitterness to balance with the sweetness of malt which balances all that smoke. Bacon, camp fire, pork rinds. Good stuff. Would drink again.

Pour from 22 ounce bomber into a snifter. This beer a amber-brown color with a 2-finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is very smokey. Taste starts out smokey and finishes up with a noticeable malt presence with the smokey presence still lingering. Not real hoppy and the alcohol is well hidden. Overall this a very interesting beer.

Poured a deep reddish color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is very smokey with bacon and wood. It pretty much dominates the aroma. Wow, there is also a lot of smoke in the taste. A little bit too much I think. It’s like drinking bacon. Some sweet creamy flavors as well, but the smoke is just too much for me. Some caramel in the finish.

A good smoked beer. Aroma was good. Ash and bacon were there, but not overpowering. Pour was a nice deep dark amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was a great mix of a good bock beer (sweet burnt honey, caramel and lager) and a nice smokey back bone. The smoke compliments the flavor and stays through to the finish. I like my smoked beers to be a little smokier, but this would be a good introduction to the style.Nice carbonation rounds the beer out. Nice.

Pour is a clear dark copper with a small tan head. Aroma is baked ham with some caramel malt. Flavor has more of a bacon meatyness to it. Finish leaves a nice smoky bacon on the tounge. A good smoked beer for those that don’t really like smoked, like me. A decent meatyness and smoke flavor but not overpowering.

Very interesting bock. Looked gorgeous. The smell was very off putting at first. Smelled like a damp charcoal grill and smoked ham or bacon. First impression was bad but taking the beer for what it is, I looked deeper. A great beer overall. Not my style but still very happy I tried it. Taste was just like smell but there was a sweet honey bbq like front side. Wouldn’t buy this again but don’t regret giving it a shot.

500. Pours a clear dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that settles down to a light film. Big candied bacon nose, very odd and somewhat off-putting. Synthetic and peculiar. Watery medium body with soft carb. Bacon, brown bread, and strawberries on the mid palate. What these things are doing here together in the glass is something of a mystery.
