Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours dark copper with very little head. Smoky aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is tart apple skin with smoke, finishing with quite a bit of smoke. If you like smoke, you should like this.

Bottle: Thanks Worldofwood: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Lively creme head that disappears right away and leaves a headless clear orange to amber colored beer.
Aromas of yellow apples, smoked branches, hint of leather, light dusty, smoke, some other fruits with a light sweet character.
Flavour is lightly alcoholic, light acidic apples with a close to nasty malty bitterness, light wood smoke, light herbal, apples and some dryness. The bitterness becomes better with time.
Aftertaste is bitter, apple, smoke, herbs and some sweet coal.
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy dry texture.
Was expecting, maybe more, maybe not, but was expecting a surprise and got it. Funny and quite tasty Cider. In balance with the smoke, just a less interesting bitterness...

If you like drinking bacon, give it a go. It’s literally what it tastes like. Bacon with hints of spices and apple. I usually really like woodchuck. I wish I could get my money back, and that’s a first for any beer/cider for me.
