Bomber. Pours a medium brownish, off-white head, decent retention and good lacing. Nose is malty with heavy dried fruits, hints of smoke, fall leaves. Mouth is malt forward, medium sweet, kinda watery body, smacks you with a big mouth full of raisins, dates, caramel and a pleasant amount of smoke. Finishes kinda weak though -- no way in hell this is 10.2%... if it is, that’s dangerous because it goes down like Kool-Aid. skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2014

Beautiful garnet color with a nice tan head. Aroma is malty with some smoke and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied. Flavor is sticky sweet, coffee like with some smokiness. Lingering creamy, malty smokey finish. Some chocolate even comes through when warmed a bit. Not a hint of alcohol. Definitely a treat. alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (March 2012). Pours a dark caramel brown with some soapy bubbles. The aroma has a mix of sweet malts and some dark fruit with a bigmeaty smoked ccharacter. Light spicy notes. The flavor is more meaty smoked malt, some caramel, dark fruit with a spicy bite. This was better than I would have guessed.

Interstimg and complex.enough to.score well, but I can’t really say I would.want it again. Copper with a beige head. Sweet country ham and a campfire hits the nose. The taste is caramel candy sweet and smokey. doublebock (558) - California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Copper color with beige foamy head. Aroma of bread and honey. Malty and slightly peaty with caramel, almonds and butterscotch. A very solid example of the style. Even though the beer claims to be "double smoked" it certainly does not overwhelm like many a Rauchbier.
