A first batch bottle I'm just now getting around to drink. I'll try to not knock it for any age related issues.
Still an attractive beer. Nice tan head. Cloudy amber browns, pale red body. Sticky dripping lacing
Nice caramel with some smoke, but not excessive. Some oxidation (I at least need to note it). But nice bock aroma's.
Pretty big mouthfeel. Sticky and chewy in a nice lager like way. Good balance of flavors with the bock clearly there and a forthright but not excessive smoke stream. Very rich beer, it will be a little tough to drink the whole thing alone without something to eat to help cut it a bit. Gets all sticky on my teeth.
Enjoyable. Probably best with food.
Thanks brother.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured form a 650 ml bottle into a mug.

A: Medium brown. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, brown-white head. Dissipates fairly quickly, leaving a smattering of bubbles on the surface. No real lacing.

S: Roasted malt, liquid smoke, and bacon.

T: Smoked malt grains, licorice, peat, and some indistinct sweet component I just can't place.

M: Hearty, but shallow feeling. Has kind of synthetic, made in a lab, sweet/bitter thing going on. Peaty aftertaste. Kind of off-putting.

D: Sipping experience. Mine was, it was decent enough, but a 12 ounce serving would have been plenty.

Atmosphere is okay. Nice foamy head, but no real lacing. Nose is roasty and bacony. Malt grains, smoked in peat, balanced with bitter and some odd sweetness. Overall, this is an okay quaff.
