4.22/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A beer from the fridge. Poured into a seidel at 45 degrees.
Appearance: A one finger head that is foamy and creamy with some retention. The color of the head is ivory with fair retention. The color the beer is opaque with mahogany hues. Tiny effervescent bubble crowd the glass. The appearance is good for this style of beer.
Nose: Smell like a Texas pit roast with mesquite. The smoke is perfumery, bacon notes, toasty, caramel, woody, and yeasty. This beer smells really good. there is not much else to the aroma because the smoke notes are strong; however, you can differentiate between the smoke and malt..
Taste: Bacon, wood, caramel, yeasty and perfumery. Not much else is coming through.
The mouth feel is dry and carbonated
Overall: The body of the beer is light and the finish is really strong. This is one of the better smoke beer I have tried; nonetheless, it is still difficult to drink.

4.18/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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.
