On tap at the brewery October 2014. Pours a cloudy copper with thick frothy beige head. The aroma is spice, toasted grain, smoke. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, light finish, good.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Cool to find this one laying around. I would have expected to see this as a taproom exclusive. Lucky for me I have had a couple chances to see those beers. Pours a muddy brown color worth almost no head. I love that this style is disliked so much, yet I think they are great. Maybe they are misunderstood. Smokey, oak and malt aroma. Very cool flavor, with a toasty, slight smoke, paired with a modest amount of sweetness. Not offended on this one. Actually quite nice.

after4ever (7656) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Draft at SB. Pours a murky dark brown with a scant white head. Sticky sweet bacony nose. Sticky thick body with minimal carb. Sweet bacon mid palate. Heavy and cloying. Such a rad reference for that name and label, though.

"Chestnut colored, full bodied. This doppelbock has all the bready goodness I expect from the style with a not-as-subtle-as -advertised smoke aroma and flavor...which was awesome. Great new beer, Id definitely get this often if I could."

solidfunk (7882) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
A little heavy on the smoke, without much left over. Reddish orange pour and ok head and lacing here. Some light caramel. Tap at Black Squirrel.

onceblind (7896) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Hazy dark amber under a thick and sticky foamy off beige head. The nose smells of peppered bacon and toast and damp wood. Big flavor of meaty grease and smokey camp wood with some burnt toast crust and sweet earthiness. Its not as smokey as some other smoked beers, so its a bit more agreeable.
