There UBS no bacon in this beer. Repeat, there is no bacon in this beer, just the power of association. This is a traditional German Rauchbier where 60% of the grist is Beech wood-smoked barley. Beech wood is commonly used for smoking pork, thus the association with bacon; light to medium body, fairly low hoppiness, and a great smoked aroma pair perfectly with meats and meat alternatives. Prosit!

Bottle... Hunahpu’s Day 2015... This beer rocks!Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is fantastic, featuring beechwood smoke and toffee. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is a bittersweet blend of honey, English biscuits and generic hoppiness. Just enough bitterness to prevent cloying. Finishes moderately sweet and lip-smackingly smoky. World-class brew!

Amber pour, light head. Lots of smoke, toasted grain, hints of bread, some roasted nuts. Not crazy smoke, pretty solid brew.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with an orange tinge under a small white head. Big smoke and campfire. Medium bodied, sweet and full of smoke. Lingering throughout, big smoke into the finish. A touch fruity throughout, but nice and smoky.

Draught. This is a fairly smokey brew with a little more nuance than I have experienced with other smoked brews.

Ferris (8460) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014

PorterPounder (6390) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - on tap at the brewpub. Nice dark copper pour, thin, but sticky off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smoked sardines aroma, a but of peat. Flavor is solid, but not overpowering. Smooth smokey notes - some smoked meat, some underlying caramel sweetness in the back end, not overpowering or offensive. Mouthfeel is thick enough. This would be a good Rauch for those new to the style and just want to get their feet wet before moving on to some of the bolder offerings.

Shag (2714) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Amber color with a white head. Aroma is smokey with some bacon and ham along with caramel. Flavor also contains a buffet of smoked meat with some caramel and toffee. Medium bodied so drinkable but intense flavor. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 I tried this in a flight, and it was definitely different than any beer I?ve tasted before. I could see drinking it with barbecue, because it has such a strong smoky flavor to it. Overall I thought it was nicely done for what it was, just not my personal preference. I would have difficulty drinking a 16 oz glass of this beer.
