Wow - what a beer! Like drinking an artisanal smoky cheese - delicious.

aroma: rich smoked creamy cheese with slight seafood

taste: rich smoked creamy cheese with caramel, seafood and bacon with slight smoked wood

beautiful flavours, great and lingering mouthfeel and a tradition that I hope stays for good. The definition of craft/artisanal beer

One of BA's new-ish features is allowing you to see if you have rated any beers in a particular style. I noticed that I didn't have anything in this style and decided to give it a try. I didn't have a short mug or a strange so I did the best I could and put it in a slender packers mug I have. Bought at Little Wine and Liquor. About 5 bucks.

A&S: Extremely big head even when poured slowly down the side. The head is fizzy and tan colored, it retains pretty well for being so big and fizzy. The beer is a dark brown color lively with carbonation and translucent. Well it is as it is advertised. Smells like smoked salami. Smoky but not ash-tray smokey like some beer that have smokey qualities, it is more of a camp fire.

T&M: Not a super complex beer, similar to the aroma lots of smoked meat taste I getting more of a beef jerky and salami mix instead of the just salami in the aroma. A little spicy in the finish, a little on the bitter side but not much. The faintest bit of dryness in the finish. On the thin side of body, pretty smooth and not that sharp from all the carbonation like the look would suggest.

Overall: For sure one of the most unique beers I have ever tasted, not a huge fan of the style, but from reading the description it really seems to nails it. I think the rating are all over the place for this beer because the style is pretty different and maybe not the most palatable for everyone. I could see this being a very good cheese paring beer though.
