On tap at BTBF. A reminder that my ratings are hedonistic, and I am scoring it to my preferences and not necessarily how I would score it per style. Pours with a clear bronze hued body with a white head. Aromas are smoke, earthy, bacon. Moderate malt complexity past the smoke. Somewhat cleanish yeast character. Flavors are smokey, earthy and nutty with a clean yeast character. Can be a bit harshly smokey at times, a bit earthy. Lively carbonation, off dry. All smoke.

Poured a very pleasent copper color with a sticky head. I had no idea that this q\was going to be a smoked beer and I knew I was in trouble as soon as I smelled it. Though not as overboard with the smoke as some German Rauchs, but still too much for me.
