This is smoked rye dopplebock. Burgundy-brown in color. The smoke aroma fills the glass and is the first thing I noticed—as well as the last. There’s some notes of sweet smoked woods (applewood? Cherrywood?) that approximate, in my mind, a combination of the fruit and grilling. It has a sharp, focused flavor—the smokiness dominates, definitely, with enough maltiness to give it body and heft, and a dopplebock sweetness to balance it out. I’d definitely try it again.
Serving type: on-tap

a: Nice brownish amber hints
s: smokey with ahint of sweetness
t: the smoke is right out front and burnt grains were present
m: Nice mouth and good smokey finish, like you just drank a camp fire.
o: I dont personally like drinking a campfire, but it is a smoked rye so if that is your thing then this one has it. If you like a strong smokey flavor and burnt grains this is a good beer for you. (If you are looking for a more traditional dopplebock this isnt a good choice.)
