16 oz bottle. smells of smoke malt and chocolate. Pours a beautiful deep brown with a tan head. Lots of lacing. Smoke and sour with toasted notes and a chalky lingering finish. Oily slick mouthfeel. super toothsome beer.

Bottle pour. I think I had this beer really early on in my craft beer journey, and didn't really understand the style. Certainly wasn't on board with it as much as I am these days. I picked this as my secret ingredient for my semi annual batch of chili, so with half the bottle left over, I get to enjoy/rate this finally. A near black pour, but a thinner appearance. A nice smokey aroma and flavor that doesn't necessarily overwhelm the product. Has that smoked meat reminder for me, which I think will pair wonderfully with the chili. A sipper for me. A nice, unique, and fun beer to have. I'll enjoy this again someday, hopefully at the source.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 God smag af røg, men ikke så meget som jeg husker den. Sødlig uden den sprittede smag som mange andre bock har.

4.3
CikyFonsz (136) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JAN 27, 2018
Brunatne, pod światło przejrzyste. Piana niska, redukuje się do drobnego pierścienia. Aromat intensywnie wędzony, poza tym trochę paloności, słodu. W smaku dochodzi trochę kawy i czekolady, a całość wpada nieco w sos BBQ. Sporo ciała. Nasycenie niskie. Goryczka wyraźna, palona.

3.7
Cybuch (658) - Muszyna, POLAND - JAN 26, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Bardzo przyjemna wedzonka ogniskowo drewniana. Barwa brazowa, piana drobna, ladna. W smaku wytrawne, wedzona sliwka, pelne. Goryczka srednia. Wysycenie niskie. Fajne, troche jednowymiarowe.
