Taste reminds me of smoked whitefish. Decent color, decent body. A very interesting smoked beer, but not necessarily a world class beer worthy of telling my friends. I'd try it again, but due to its intrigue more than its sensationalism.

Pours a clear dark amber with a frothy white head that is dense and foamy. Head retention is good as is clarity.

The aroma has smoke and bready lager qualities. Malt sweetness shows up well with some caramel essence.

Taste has smoke, wheat, caramel, and bready yeast. Smoke, caramel, campfire, charred. Tastes like the morning after a campfire with your best friends. Good beer and certainly has the flavor of BBQ meats.

Overall, if you like smoked beer you'll like this. If you don't like smoked beer then you will probably not like this. Worth a try, it's a gorgeous beer for fans of the style.

Appears a bright copper slightly ruby hue with a well formed white head. Aroma brings out layers of smoked meat, my notes mention bacon. Think being around a campfire while cooking smoked meats that's the aromatics. Serious smoked ale not as heavy with the smoke as some of the Bamberg versions, but it's unrelenting smoked meat with a nice bready malt layer, minimal hops are detected here. Mouthfeel the bacon and smoked meat character lingers between sips, medium bodied with ample carbonation. Overall something different nice to see enough smoke in this type of beer, usually American brewers go way too light with the smoke this is intense but enjoyable.

Do not actually know if this is limited or a seasonal - had at the Pittsburgh location over the weekend.
Very nice appeareance as it was a murky brown with good two-finger head that died quick on top of a mostly meaty, smokey aroma, although one could say hints of bread, sweet caramel and spicy hops. I call this a Rauchbier b/c I'm not buying a smokey Bock - while there is a decent sweetness and some hop bite, this medium-boded beer which can be a little full and sticky, is mostly smoke/meaty. Not in a bad way - I enjoy a dry, "harsh" rauchbier now and then to wet the whistle, and I would describe this as a rauchbier on the lighter side. Good beer and worth a try if you like the stlye and you're at Fat Heads.
