Haha, this beer is hilarious. It tastes exactly like a ham sandwich. There is absolutely nothing else to say about it. It tastes like a salty ham sandwich.

I have no idea how they did it, but it's spot on. Unfortunately, even though they nailed the taste, ham sandwich isn't a very good beer flavor.

I definitely give FFF points for originality and successfully doing what they were trying to do, but other than that, this is not an enjoyable beer.

No big deal, though, these guys have earned the right to experiment. Still the best brewery in the world, in my opinion.

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.

I HATE to give FFF a review like this but here goes. I did not like this brew. I only had a couple sips because I wouldnt have been able to drink anymore than that. Its seriously like a piece of salt ham. I'm sure thats what they were aiming for but its a very wierd taste! Unless you have food you cant drink it IMHO.

On tap at 3 Floyds. Smokey aroma. Very smokey flavors. First beer like this. But not to big of a fan of the smoked malt. Its got a nice bitterness. My girlfriend likes it more than I do. To much like smoke flavors.
