3.81/5 rDev +7%
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.

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!
