Pours a clear, dark mahogany with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent pale tan head. Malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and a hint of - is that beef jerky? Flavor has a malty core with tones of smoke, barbecue and caramel and a hint of yeast. It’s almost like drinking a well-smoked sausage. (Ugh - I’m a vegetarian, but this is beer!) Smooth texture has above average body and some decent fizz. Like barbecue? Try this one!

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.
