Pours brown amber and mainly clear with a well-built yellow-white head that mainly fades but leaves some lacing. Aroma is a deep and richly smoky wood fire with notes of bacon or smoked meats. Taste is less smoky than the aroma but is sweet caramel and darkfruits with a balance of smoky malts. There are noble hops on the finish with just a bit mild bitterness. Alcohol is totally disguised. I really like this beer and am a big fan of these incredibly unique smoked beers. Perhaps not for everyone, but there is no denying the craft.

January 2011. From bottle. Dark amber color with a tan head. Sweet aromas of caramel, malt, dark fruit and of course smoke. A masterpiece of a beer. Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2013
16.9 oz. bottle. Purchased at Gabriels Superstore. San Antonio, TX. It pours a golden amber color with a fine head. The aroma brings some lovely campfire. It’s almost like I am camping, though I am in my living room right now. It’s smoked meaty aroma gives off the impression of smoked meats, in particular, sausage. The taste has some more smoke but it seems to compete evenly with the taste of some sweet malt. That brings some flavors of honey on the back end. It also has a moderate bitterness that I am not used to from Schlenkerla smoked beers. It’s definitely not the smokiest that they offer. Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2013
AMber color, light for style. Thin head, medium carb. Very strong smoke aroma. Excellent taste, but, again, smoke dominates. Shot palate that thins and stays. Not my cup of tea. edgallow (4376) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2013
16.9 oz bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma is smokey and malts. Taste is malts and only a hint of smoke.
