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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
