look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Looks good. Brown and clean with a thin, off-white head.
S: The label isn't lying. Powerful smokey aroma with bacon showing up clearly. Smells more like breakfast than beer.
T: Smoke blasts the tastebuds hard. Didn't notice the bacon as much, but the combination of smoke and malt wound up tasting kinda like a band aide. Not something I enjoyed.
M: Moderately full, the smokiness made it seem fairly big. Good carbonation.
O: This definitely wasn't my bag. The chemical/band aide affect in the taste left a lot to be desired. Pleasent to smell, not so much to taste. Didn't finish the bottle.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber/brown color with a half inch light tan head that fizzled away pretty quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma is pretty much all smoked meats/malt (bacon), along with a bit of wood. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes mostly like smoked malt/meats, and there's also some wood and an apple juice flavor noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating with a decent amount of carbonation. I think it's a solid brew, it's definitely worth trying.

A: Deep mahogany brown. Murky with tan head that fades into white bubbles on the top.

S: Definitely smells like smoked meat. Something sweet in the smell as well, almost like maple bacon.

T: Smokey up front.. this fades to a gentle pleasant sweetness. The finish is a nice long lasting grilled aftertaste. There is almost a Belgian flavor in here, I'll need to get another bottle or two to figure this thing out.

M: Thin to medium bodied, though it feels quite light in your mouth. Carbonation is there, but it is not featured. There is a nice roundness to this brew.

D: Definitely something I would like to get again. I think I could drink a few pints of this, and try to figure it out a little better.

22 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a mug

A - It is a dark rust color with amber highlights. I normal pour provided four inches of tan head.

S - It smells like a rauchbier. I get that wonderful aroma of smoked pork. I get some caramel malt as well.

T - It's got a pretty good smokey flavor to it. I get some sweet caramel malt in the middle, and it has a dry, bitter finish.

M - Medium with some prickly carbonation.

O - It has the makings of a great rauchbier. I loved the aroma, and the initial flavor was good. I didn't like the dry, bitter finish.

This beer was picked up at a local stop and rob. The beer was served in a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a murky dark amber coloration. The head was a thick beige that resolves to a ring of foam. No lacing noted.

Smell: The aroma of the beer is loaded with smokey bacon. A nice maple note couples with the meaty bacon.

Taste: A sweet maple smoked bacon, starts very strongly smokdy and mellows out.

Mouthfeel / Drinkability: The body of the beer is just shy of medium. I think a little less fizzyness would improve the drinkability. I would certainly grab another bottle of this should I see it great bang for the buck at $5.00 a bomber.

On tap at the brewery.
Murky, muddy brown.
It smells like bacon. Juuust like bacon. Yummmm.
Much sweeter than anticipated. It's way more malty and sweet than smoky or savoury.
Smooth and round.
A good beer, but I don't know that I'd want a whole one...
