3.93/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a very clear amber color, with a fair amount of carbonation. Head is an off white color, that has extremely nice retention and lacing. All in all, a pretty nice looking beer.

Smell: I get some caramel and some fruitiness, all overlayed by layers of smoke. The smoke is definitely prevalent, but it doesn't overpower the rest of the beer by any means.

Taste: Caramel and fruitiness initially. Fruits that come across are of the dark variety, and give a pretty good showing in the overall scheme. Smoke really hits mid-palate and dominates the rest of the flavor. Some hints of dark fruits peek out as well, but the smoke is the main flavor the last half of the sip.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty nice feel, and it does drink lighter than ~9.5% ABV. Very flavorful but it stays reasonably drinkable. Pretty good rauschbier. Admittedly I'm notl experienced with this style, but this beer is pretty nice and not over the top in smoke flavor, which I appreciate.

3.69/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a dark murky brown with a small creamy off-white head that has good retention after settling

S- smoked sausage, campfire ash, charred wood, birch, caramel & raisin. Pretty much pure smoke with a hint of caramel sweetness

T- big smoky flavors up front; charred woodsy notes, earthy and herbal, spicy. There's a caramel malty sweetness that adds some balance mid-palate. The finish brings more smoke with some peaty flavor

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel leads to a smooth and creamy finish. ABV is brilliantly hidden

O- the smoke is big throughout, making it hard to drink the entire bomber. However it paired nicely with some brick cheese and summer sausage. I think this style is better tackled with some food. Overall, worth a try!
