This beer, created in honor of Henry Chinaski, was a collaboration between Three Floyds and Jonathan Cutler of Piece Brewery. Its delicate, spicy, smoked character is derived from a portion of smoked and rye malts.Also brewed by Barnaby&Chris to piss Nick off ;)

Admin Note: Formerly known as "Ham on Rye"

Darker gold pour, white head. Some retention/no lace. Aroma of ham, light smoke, caramel. Taste is lightly smokey, glazed ham, caramel. Palate is soft, slick, light finish. Really nails the ham.

On tap at 3 Floyds. Smokey aroma. Very smokey flavors. First beer like this. But to big of a fan of the smoked malt. Its got a nice bitterness. My girlfriend likes it more than I do. To much like smoke flavors.

Tap pour at brewpub - actually shared with another as Im just not a huge smoked beer fan, but this one sounded interesting. Copper pour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is obviously smoky (medium strength) with some sweet malt, a heavy dose of spice (yeah for the rye) and some bbq accents - very interesting, and not overwhelming. Flavor is solid - the smokiness is far from overwhelming and actually complements other flavors of ham (yep, no doubt it is in there), spice, medium malt backbone - good stuff. Palate is appropriate for the style, and this is about as drinkable of a smoked beer Ive ever had. Kudos to this effort - although I probably wont go back for another, this was truly a good beer...

Just like the name, this beer does taste like ham. Bitter ham. Pours an orange in color and smells like a pilsner. Very strong. Had at the tap room. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Darker gold in color and nice white head that shows medium retention. S: Big time rye in the front of this. Smokey aroma later on, pretty nice. T: Rye up front with some smokiness up front. There is a underlying sweetness to this but only in the front half. Very much reminiscent of a ham on rye. M: Medium mouthfeel. Tastes were smokey and left everywhere from the palate and long into the aftertaste. Nice dry rye to it. O: A nice change of pace, not something I would crave however.

Pours a clear amber/copper color with small white head. Aroma is full of smoked meat, spices and bread -just as the name suggests. Taste is sweet and malty with some bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with very light carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. This one was a lot of fun.

On tap at three floyds brewing. Sweet, smoky aroma. Almost smells of bacon. Taste is smooth, interesting malt profile. Mild bitterness backing, but mixes well with malty sweetness. Tastes like its name. Good beer.

On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass copper coloured, almost no head. Fine smokey-spicy aroma. Starts mild-malty, modest smokey, not too intense. Finish less smokey, fine malty-spicy. Quite drinkable. Really nice!

Aroma is rich, malty and bready, some dry ricey character. Hazy brown color with a creamy light tan head. Dry toasty rye flavor, light sweetness. Nice highly drinkable, little smoke character.
