COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We house-smoke North Carolina six-row barley over hickory wood, imparting a sweet, subtle smoke to our hickory-smoked brown porter. Depending on your comfort level with smoked beers, you may find Hogwash subtle or overwhelming. Try it with North Carolina barbecue for some smoke-on-smoke action, or go for the Trifecta of Awesome: bacon, beer, and chocolate!
Availability: year-round, draft only for now. 5.4% ABV.

Cybercat (6142) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Taps opaque coffee brown with a nice, fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma features hickory smoke, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate notes, more stout than Porter. Flavor delivers roast malt, hickory smoke, chocolate, and subtle molasses notes. This ain’t no hogwash! Firm, smooth body has good fizz. Get smoked - but please contact Lyft or Uber if you get too smoked!

Nice sweet smoked beer. Brown with ruby highlights. Campfire it the aroma. The taste adds a nice brown sugar sweetness. Medium carbonation and drinkable,

Enjoyed a growler full with great people in Indianapolis. Nice smoky nose with a hint of sweetness. Hickory. Appearance was a bit light for a porter. Taste was nice and smoky with a faint sweetness. Kinda how I like my ribs. Not a lot of porter flavors but the flavors were still good. Palate was touch thin but still went down smooth. Overall a really good beer that was more interesting than a lot of the run of the mill beers that a lot of places are turning out. Nice work!

Amazing smoke beer. Great aroma of a wood bbq pit with a drak and burnt color to match. Taste was still somewhat sweet but with a good rauch balance.
