Pour is a hazed copper with a tight light tan head. Nose is strong grain up front, a bit rubbery. Hints of woody ash, and a touch of tree sap. Taste is super smokey, full on campfire. Some grain underneath and a hint of sweet tree sap. Body is light, carb is strong, feel is a hint slick.

Very interesting beer. A maple bacon flavor (yes bacon), with a very interesting meaty after-taste. If someone had asked me if I wanted a maple bacon beer with a meaty aftertaste ... heck no. But for some reason, this beer works. Can't say I would drink it all the time, but if I find this, I will definitely have it again.

Again ... very interesting beer.

Poured into a snifter

A- pours a bright & clear copper color with ruby hue, small fizzy white head that reduces to leave a few patches of lace

S- smoky roasted malt with notes of campfire, coffee bean and earthy aromas, sweet maple. This actually smells very similar to a nice smoked porter

T- caramel malt, sweet honey, baked apples, glazed ham. The smoke actually becomes most prominent after the finish with a camp-fire-ash smokiness that lingers on the palate

M- medium body with moderate prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a dry, crisp finish

O- definitely the most drinkable Rauchbier that I've had. It's sweet up front and smoky on the finish

Red gold body with fluffy finger of marshmallow head.

Nose is smoky and sweet. Mouthwatering.

Flavor is light but sweet. Not a usual combination. Smokiness is very present, but not over-powering. Maple sweetness really hits the mark here, without being cloying.

Pretty thin overall. Mouthfeel is slick and lightly coating.

Drinkability is very high. The mild flavors and light body make it very easy to enjoy.
