On tap at the brewery. This amber ale poured with a thin off-white head and a smoky aroma. The flavor, too, is smoked malt and quite spicy with a carbonated mouthfeel and a slightly bitter finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a light amber with a small head. Nose is smokey with beef jerky and spicy rye bread coming through. Taste is nice, with your mouth being hit by salty ham washed down with rye soup, light spicing, some cinnamon and spice. Nice body and mouthfeel. Very nice.

What a cool beer. Tastes like a rye beer with a sweet smoked ham aftertaste. Upon ordering, the waitress told me to get a small glass, which I’m glad I did. A good taste, but not something I could drink a lot of.

Draft. Amber in color. Smokey aroma, alot like Christmas Ham. Tastes like the name in liquid form. Good smoke beer.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Clear amber with a tight head. Big spicy smoke aromas of a really good split pea and ham soup. Medium body and smooth. Great spicy smoky flavors of a ham sandwich and split pea soup lunch riding on a lightly sweet bready malt base. A nice smoke beer. Draft at the brewpub.

Pour is clear golden amber with a thin sticky off white head...smell is smokey bacon and a subtle sweetness of toasted sourdough...taste is lightly sweet at first with a caramel note, then smokey and spicy with some black pepper...well done!

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Oh my God, this stuff was delicious. Pours orange and murky. Smells just like a damn Ham sandwhich. Tastes just like...you guessed it, a damn ham sandwhich. Exactly like a ham sandwhich. Not so much deli ham, but a big slice of home, oven baked ham. Sound silly? Iím being very serious. But, the thing that makes this beer truly special is that the ham is the dominate flavor, and yet doesnít overpower the malt and rye character of the beer. My only suggestion would be to figure out a way to make a "Ham on Rye with Cheese and Mayo" beer, since thatís how I like my ham sammitches...but that might be kind of terrible, so this one is fine as is! This is a big chewy beer all around, and if there are no plans to ever bottle this stuff, I will be making a trip to FFF to get a growler.

On tap at FFF. Coppery color with a small off-white head.l Smoke and bacon in the nose. Weird, but not in an unpleasant way. Tasted liked it smelled, smoky and ham/bacon. A bit of a rye bite in it too. Only thing missing was the mustard (joke). Would have preferred a smaller glass of this and a bigger of the Dark Lord. All-in-all a good smoked beer. Especially liked that it was a collaboration with Piece. Excellent beer to cook with. Mmmmm . . . chili.

Draft @ DLD 08: Dark copper/maroon color with a minimal white head. Smoked malts and shockingly enough...ham and...more ham. Seemed odd but it worked and tasted just like it smelled. It wasnít too heavy on the ham taste that it overpowered the malt aspects but rounded it out nicely.

Ham on Rye.....Tastes like Ham on Rye. Seriously. Very nice smoked brew with a very different taste! I hope they start bottling this stuff.
