Draft. Completely amazing. Thick campfire smoke aroma. Flavors of smoke, lager yeast, vegetal and some chili too. World-class. RabbleRouseRye (21) - Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2017
I love the smokey taste of a traditional German Rauchbier and Monkey Paw doesn’t disappoint with this beer. Although I will say it is a a slightly sweeter smoke profile than I am used to with this style. If your looking to pair this with food it goes with just about any red meat from steak to sausage. Just a very fun beer. blipp (10184) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Nice smoked malty base, a bit of toffee-sweet malts, light husky notes, and a lingering smoked malty finish. Pretty good. hayduke (5757) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 7, 2016
