22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 4/24/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, wheat, wood smoke, dark bread, light char, nuttiness, herbal, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted/bready malt and smoke notes; with great strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, wheat, wood smoke, dark bread, light char, light nuttiness, herbal, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Slight tartness/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, wheat, wood smoke, dark bread, light nuttiness, and smoke/roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted/bready malt and smoke flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice smoked beer. All around good complexity and robustness of dark/roasted/bready malt and smoke flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a fine, half finger light brown head with great retention and sheets of lacing. Aroma of smoky toasted grain, cocoa, nuts with a bit of meaty smokehouse. Flavor starts similar to the aroma, with smoky toasted wheat with light hints of cocoa and nuts, develops a bit of tartness as the flavor thins out a bit, exposing the smokiness more clearly. Long lingering smokehouse aftertaste with hints of bacon. A quite nicely made interpretation of a Gratzer leaning towards the theory that this style was slightly sour. I'm not a sour fan, but the light tartness in this was pleasing and fit well with the smoke. I liked this more as I drank the glass and as much as the more lightly flavored attempt at a traditional version of this from Professor Briem. Nicely done and a successful Lips of Faith experiment. Possibly a bit challenging for those not familiar with the history of this rare, nearly extinct style.
