GABF ’08. Hi Hapjy. A beast of flavorful smoky balance. Badass nose...scarier than the flavor. I dig it...now to wash it down with some furious.

2012 bottle. Pours cola brown. Nice roasty aroma. Flavor is smoky goodness and charred meat. Well rounded and quite good.

Had at official release at the Pig. Served to cold, no smoke aroma or taste. Once warmed for a bit, it was smokey sausage/bacon goodness! Very easy going down, not as much hops as you might expect from Surly, fairly balanced. Towards the end of the glass the smoke aroma and flavor really came out and was best. One of Surly’s finest.

Ummm, this smells lovely, smokey good. Very dark color with some good hop bite(who’d a thunk it?) I have only had a few other B.P and I enjoyed this better then the Gonzo, cause i like hops. Todd said he is going to put this in oak barrells before the offical release, so it will be fun to try it then and see what it does. Good stuff!

Tap at Woolley’s. Deep brown with some tan lacing. Smokey, leather, dried leaves and earthy hops. Taste is dry with light bitterness. Body is lighter with a foamy feel.

22oz bottle poured into small pub glass. Pours a dark brown almost black in color with a moderate white head. Aroma of smoked malts. Medium carbonation with smooth mouthfeel. Taste of roastiness/smokiness however not overwhelming like other smoked ales, nicely balanced. Great showing by Surly

Pitch black with a brown head and some mild lacing. The nose has some oak, smoked ham, chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is a smooth mixture of smoked ham, oak and roasted malts with a bitter smoke/hop aftertaste. The palate is more of a heavyweight with some mild to moderate carbonation, but has sort of a smooth texture. It’s not as smokey or rich as say other Rauchbiers out there but it’s definitely more balanced in terms of flavor.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750 ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Deep, dark brown colored pour with a small tan head that immediately vanishes. Sweet, smokey aroma with a hint of oak. Flavor is also sweet, smokey and oaky with some nice malty balance. Finish is sweet smokiness. I paired it with Mexican food for a great combo.

Bottle at Savor. This was my first beer from this brewer. I really enjoyed it! Flavor has the smoke all over it, but it’s not overpowering. Alcohol is well hidden. Very well balanced, would drink again if I can find it.
