Enjoyed in snifter, this smoked bock pours a brilliant hazy copper with a firm white head and nice lacing. Nose of smoked malts, caramel, raisins, and more smoke. Flavors of sweet caramel up front, very rich, moderate smoke to the aftertaste with figs and raisins. Alcoholic warming and lots of smoke. With age the smoke dissipates, but still pretty strong with a goodly mouth feel, very wet but coating. Decent, big, but decent.

Brilliant clarity, amber, with a frothy cream head that lingers. Aroma is malt dominant, fairly caramelly, almost buttery. I don't get much smoke.

Flavor is much more phenolic and smoke, with deeply caramelly notes. Nice and bready, toasted, caramel malt. On the sweet and smoky side, would go great with bbq.

Body is full, lighter carbonation.
