2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown and bubbly. The head was a bunch of bubbles that only formed into a head for a few seconds.
Smells like smoke, lots of it. Exactly like a raunchier. There is also the smell of black olives.
It tastes smokey too. Also roasted malt and bacon.
Lots of carbonation, light body and stickiness to the texture.
I like the smokey smell and taste, but the other tastes and texture are just not fitting together for me. Worth trying if only for its uniqueness.
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Caramel, toastiness, some smoke, and some meat. mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Dark brown with thin, gassy head. Aroma offers some sweet, caramel malts at first before the smokey tea comes through. Reasonably thick, smooth texture. Flavour is like malty, sweet, smokey tea. Strange. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
"what an odd duck this one is. didn’t know the tea in this beer was smoked (and heavily so). the doppelbock made no appearance, but the aroma was an odd/interesting mix of smoke, tea, banana, and clove, with the smoke being the main player in aroma and flavor. it was a bit much for me...7 oz was nice but i would not have been able or willing to finish the bomber myself.

Aroma of malt, wheat, banana, chocolate, smoked bacon, and some taste I can’t identify so it must be the tea. Flavour is malty sweetness, quite sweet, with a smokey finish. I’m not terribly crazy about this, but it is definitely an interesting brew. WanderinCelt87 (197) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pour is pitch black with a tan head. Smell is malty and coffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a little bitterness. Leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Rated on 12-31-2011 (Bottled on 02/16/11) This beer pours a small very fizzy tan head that is mostly diminishing, opaque dark brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate and sweet. The flavor is sweet and in my face MALTY, MALT, MALTY, and MALTY. What the heck?? The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. I thoroughly enjoy malty tasting beer, but this is way too much! So much that it ended up being a drainpour. I don’t know if this is a bad bottle or not, but bye, bye.

Bottle at SlutFest 2011 on 04/23/2011. Dark brown body with a small frothy tan head. Sweet smoke and caramel aroma. Sweet malty flavor with light smoke, caramel and fruit. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
WTF?! why does it taste and smell like a rauchbier?! is it the tea? is it supposed to be that smoky? ugh, this was a mess. drain pour. wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Smelled ok but the flavor was big BBQ. Weird! After multiple swallows the bbqness almost goes away.
