UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 this beer is great. my friends introduced it to me as the "ham sandwhich beer" and, try as i might, i actually cant come up with a better description. if you can possibly imagine drinking a smoked ham and cheese sandwhich, you have this beer. is that a messed up way to describe beer? oh well, its true. awesome beer.

Amazing smoked beer, i’ve tried others that were possibly smokier, more like drinking liquid smokey bacon than anything (can become cloying) but this works better and is a better beer because it’s so dry in the finish.

Transparent cola like color. Huge bacon and smoke aroma, not much else detectable. Flavor much the same. Tons of smoke, tiny bit of backbone sweetness, but hard to get through all the smoke. Tad dissapointed as I really enjoyed the first brew I tried fronm these guys.

ara os que conhecem a Rauchbier da Eisenbahn, essa Smoked alemã é muito mais potente, em todos os aspectos. Seu aroma característico lembra a carne, fumaça e principalmente linguiça, do tipo blumenau. Sua espuma tem aparência inicial cremosa e coloração marrom clara, com pouca longevidade. Seu corpo é claro e sua densidade media, com tonalidade marrom. Ao primeiro gole nota-se um paladar salgado, também de linguiça blumenau. Seu corpo tem textura seca e carbonatação suave, características marcantes das Rauchbiers. O final do gole é marcado por um amargor médio e um toque metálico, sem perdurar muito no paladar, no entanto.

Draught at Pig’s Ear BF. Nice smokiness balances malty sweetness to some extent. Lacks carbonation, it would have made it better.

Holy Smokes! Smells of rich smokey meats, and the first sip was like a bite of smoked salmon. Putting back more then one glass might be to much, but the flavor and aroma of this are top notch. You better like a lot of smoke to enjoy this one.

Don’t know how to quite rate this. If you want smoke, this is the real thing. The malt is smoked over beechwood. Not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2010 Pours dark brown with amber hues and mostly receding light tan head. Notes of smoked wood, toffee, meats, sausage, and brown malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I enjoy this, but it’s taken me quite a while to warm up to smoked beers.
