UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Had it on tap at Three Floyds. A perfectly titled beer. Tastes and smells like ham on rye. A true liquid lunch. Not bad.

On tap at DLD ’11. This beer is a true testament to 3Fs bittering/hopping skills as their distinctive floral and citrus hops still permeate through and give an impressive balance to the meaty, smoked bacon. The aroma is essentially as just described. The body is lighter feeling for a smoked and well carbonated surprisingly, as I was expecting a slightly thicker, creamy fullness. Still, nicely drinkable. Hamy notes here in the flavor, with spicy, roasted pig and wood, along with mixed cereal grains, rye, citrus and florals. The finish is hoppy though well balanced. Really a well made beer. Definitely my kind of smoked.

On tap at Smallbar Division in Chicago, IL while watching the final Premier League week relegation battles. Appearance somewhat clear dark amber with almost no head. Aroma not really present, maybe a bit of roasted malt in the backing. Taste is like freaking ham on rye! This may be the perfect hangover beer. Mainly dominated by a rye flavor with a hint of roasted/smoked malt, its just nuts because you can really taste the ham. Good and very unique.

Pours translucent dark gold/light brown with a thin ring of a head. Aroma is of pork roll, brown sugar, and smoked meat. Flavor is of pork rinds and sweet molasses/caramel with a bitter smoky finish. Light/medium bodied.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 Pours an ugly semi clear super dark gold, a light tan head forms a small ring... Fantastic nose of smoked ham, salt and bacon, closest thing I’ve smelled to a Schrenkerla, just awesome... Taste has incredible complexity and depth as its very similar to eating at a sandwhich as there is so many layers of flavor, rye break, ham, smoke, salt, great, light finish that almost dies hurts a bit... Feel is a touch watery... Great smoked beer to search out

bittermestupid (247) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2011
On draft at Map Room. Pours dark golden with a big rocky white head. Smells of smoke, ham, bread grains and some maltiness. Caramel malts, smoke and a light molasses sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is that of smoke. Interesting beer!

AndyReynolds (859) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma is roasted malts and smoke with notes of maple syrup and rye. Palate is much lighter than I would have thought. Flavor is bitter and a little dry. Pretty good.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2011
Pours a deep copper color with a rocky head. Smells like a ham sandwich! Deep smoked malts and bacon with something else underlying. A nice caramel malt backbone with a nice amount of smoke, bacon, and tastey rye near the finish. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Pretty unique brew!

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2011
On tap at 3 Floyds. Not too bad. The name pretty much says it all. Very ham/pork like, with a decent amount of smokiness. Not very harsh but rather smooth smokiness. Decent enough
