On-tap at Revolution.

Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that lingers around the edge.

Aroma of smokey campfire mixed with medicinal cherry throat lozenges. Not good.

Upfront taste is light smokey malts with a slightly sweet fruitiness. Malty middle with some caramel sweetness and piney hops. The finish is a unique combination of pine, smoke, and citrus. Lingering smokey flavor.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Clean finish.

Not a fan of this at all. Really hard to drink, even for a smoked beer. The aroma of cough syrup throws the taste off before it even hits the tongue. Comes across as a malty IPA gone awry with smoked malt. Disappointing.

It flies in the face of all logic, but I love this beer. I wish it was bottled. I wish FFF would at the very least would make it annually again.

Appearance - The beer was a darker golden color served with a bubbly white head. The barkeep at FFF served the beer in a pilsner glass.

Smell - The rye is the most impressive note, but I am pretty sure I can also actually smell salt. This one smells like it tastes.

Taste - I think the 2014 batch is a little weaker than previous years. The initial impression that comes to the front is the tang of the rye. But then, the smoke and the saltiness (like ham) balance out the rye. The main drawback of the beer is that it finishes a little weak. The aftertaste veers in a sour direction, with the salt losing its flavor.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is pretty straight forward. The carbonation is pretty average and the beer goes down smooth, leaving a nice coat on the tongue.

Overall - I like this one a lot, but even I start getting bored by the end of the glass. I think the beer itself gets bored with me because it loses interest in tasting the same.

A: Darker gold in color and nice white head that shows medium retention.

S: Big time rye in the front of this. Smokey aroma later on, pretty nice.

T: Rye up front with some smokiness up front. There is a underlying sweetness to this but only in the front half. Very much reminiscent of a ham on rye.

M: Medium mouthfeel. Tastes were smokey and left everywhere from the palate and long into the aftertaste. Nice dry rye to it.

O: A nice change of pace, not something I would crave however.
