Bishop Bob's Holy Smoke This beer is a Bamberg-style Rauchbier. The town of Bamberg in Germany originated the style of smoked beers. These beers are made with a dose of smoked barley. Our recipe relies on a light bock recipe for its base and contains about 20% imported smoked barley. The noble German hops are used to balance the taste into a unique beer drinking experience.

Majority of 6 oz. pour, on tap at the brewerys taproom in Warren, Michigan. Consumed on 9-26-16. Hazy, maroon to medium brown. Long-lasting, beige head. Very pleasant color to the liquid. Meaty, smoky aroma. Barbecue sauce scent. Smells nice but should be stronger, and it doesnt have the powerful smoke of many rauchbiers. Nice, meaty, malty taste. Really tasty and delicious. An excellent rauchbier, which itself is an excellent style. Well-made base beer with good smoke. Even more smoke could have pushed this into the upper echelon. Medium body, heavy for the ABV. Frothy in the palate. Really good stuff. Looks great and super-tasty.

Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Very nice, the smoke is prominent, but balanced by a nice malty character.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Smokey aroma. Smokey flavor. Unfortunately, both are of a liquid smoke variety instead of a good campfire. 6/2014 Update: Tastes more like woodsmoke! Coincidence with their new BBQ menu?

Armoma is smokey, yet quite smooth. Dark as sin, almost no head on it. Taste smoke and water, a very thin beer. Not something to seek out but enough to try if given the means

On tap at Dragonmead Brewery. Very encouraging smoky aroma. Pours relatively dark. Has a smoky taste, but is somewhat of a letdown as its not very full bodied and seems a bit watered down.

Tap at Dragonmead. Pale amber pour. The nose is really nicely smokey. A little bit of light saltiness with a fairly clean malt character. The beer is moderately smokey flavoured with an insistent smoked character on the back of the palate as well. Fairly clean if a little bit sweet. Quite carbonic tasting but the beer is pretty decent really.

Tap @ Dragonmead - arouma is grilled bbq and bacon. Caramel and toffee base. Lots of woody smoke, not much hops. They actually do this one decently.

Bottle. Pours orange with no head. Lots of smoky bacon toasted aromas that are strong and really nice. Light toasted malt flavors that are smokey earthy. This comes together pretty well. Solid beer. 9/3/8/4/15

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 The aroma was awesome, smoky like lapsang souchong tea. Very subtle smoke and mild malt flavor. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dark brown appearance, nearly no foam, no lace. Overall, nice.
