4.18/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
L= 4.5 Deep mahogany brown with a brown 2 finger foamy head.
S= 4.5 There is a ton of things going on with the nose here. There is BBQ on a hot day, charcoal and even hints of lighter fluid! Amazing
T= 4.0 Malty sweetness like a dobblebock up front that leads into smoke, flame, and charcoal
F= 4.5 Surprising light to medium bodied. From the nose you would think that this beer is going to be huge but thank god the flavors back down from the nose.
D= 4.0 (non-session) I could drink this beer next to a campfire all night. The best of its style thus far along my smoked beer journey. It has everything that a smoked beer should have. A true must try for those who have not tried it before.

500ml bottle poured into a lager glass.
A: Pours a dark chestnut color; much darker than I remember and much darker than your average marzen these days. Head retention is ungodly. A huge rocky beige head retains at a solid three fingers for as long as there is beer in the glass. Lacing sticks in stubborn clumps.
S: Campfire and jerky waft out of the glass. Hints of carob, chewy dark caramel, brown molasses, and brown bread. Very smoky.
T: Campfire, smoke, and jerky wrap around a core of nutty cocoa and carob. Burnt toast. Chewy brown caramel. Oily and herbal hop bitterness. Clean. Lingering campfire and woody smoke on the drying finish.
M: Medium-thick body. Weighty but very silky. It glides across the tongue. Moderately stiff carbonation. A very substantial and sustaining feel, as 'meal in a glass'.
O: Oh God, what an excellent beer. One of the more full and complex lagers out there. Glad to see that a few of the Bamberg breweries are still cranking out traditional smoked beers, and doing a world-class job of it. This is world-beating stuff. An absolute must-try for any serious beer aficionado.
