look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Deep, amber-brown in color with an off-white, bubbly, fizzy head that fades quickly and leaves behind no lace or retention.
S: Huge smoke, roasted malt, earth, and peat. Beef jerky (in a good way) and bbq stand out. As expected, it kinda smells like a fire pit the day after.
T: The flavor is more balanced than the nose indicates. It's not the salty, smoky, roasty malt-bomb that I expected. Quite delicious, actually. That being said, it's definitely has plenty of smoke, earth, peat, charcoal, and heavily roasted/smoked malt.
M: Crazy smooth and flavorful with the right amount of carbonation. I can only imagine how perfectly this would pair with a pulled pork sandwich!
O: Pleasantly surprised but ze Germans do all of their beer right. A joy to drink. This style may not be for everybody but it's most likely one of the best offerings.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle in to a snifter.
A- Pours a clear dark brown body with some red around the edges. Head consists of a frothy gray cap which disappears in just seconds.
S- Smokey! Smoked, salty meats. Bacon. Pancetta. Brown sugar ham. A little campfire-like smoke, but it's mostly meat-like.
T- You guessed it... smoked meat all the way. Lighter flavor than the Urbock if I remember correctly. I can easily drink the whole bottle to myself without the flavor raping my taste buds.
M- Light body and medium-light carbonation. I wish it was a little chewier.
O- Pretty tasty overall. I'll definitely be having this and the Urbock sometime in the future.
