Samuel Adams Bonfire Rauchbier
Part of the Harvest Collection 2011.
Body is on the lighter side of amber, solid white head.
Aromatics are a bit lacking. Some smokiness along with feint malt in the background.
The taste is a whole different story. Sam Adams has provided us with one juicy, succulent, and fully enjoyable Rauchebier. This is one Raunchy Rauchebier. Upfront a cradle of sweetness, with a solid base of earthy malt and some citrus hops provide way for what is to come. A strong influx of dominating smokiness, raw, unrefined, and peaty. Teriyaki beef jerky infused with a hint of spice and lots of smoke. Finishes zesty, meaty, and citrusy. A delicious endeavor to partake in. Would be absolutely divine with barbecue.
A style often underrepresented, this beer is an absolute home run. This smokey meaty Rauchebier has all bases covered. Smokey enough to make your eyes water.
