this is as smokey as any rauchbier ive had, definitely the most smokey american made beer ive had. it pours really dark brown, dark chocolate color, with a yellowish tan head an inch high. the nose is crazy, like a bonfire, or like smoked bacon or something, meaty and woody, dark malts, vanilla, and burnt toast. the flavor is totally dominated by the smoke, its nice over a huge porter that can stand up with all that flavor. the malt profile is awesome, and the alcohol isnt really there at all. its got a long bitter finish, with some detectabe hops happening. mouthfeel is lovely as well, really creamy in texture, its a nice contrast to the sort of rough around the edges flavors. carbonation isnt bubbly, but its bright, makes the beer quite drinkable. i enjoyed half the bomber, and put the other half into a pot of bison chilli, and found the results to be great. its a perfect beer for that application, and a nice one to drink with foods like bbq and roasts. world class.

Inky-black pour with faint hints of mahogany. Totally impenetrable when in the glass. Beautiful multi-inch, tan, head forms. Thick, small bubbles. Retention is excellent! Roasted, toasty, smoky, sour, notes in the nose. The nose is evident, yet restrained and elegant. Smoke, and toast dominate. Anticipation builder! Medium-light body for a porter. Lingering smoke notes on the palate. Nose and palate bring forth memories of camp fires. Perhaps a little short? Delicious. Minimal (spotty) lace formation. Bright and balanced. Could be used as an aperitif. Certainly gets the gastric juices flowing! The ABV is not evident.

Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, smoke, slight alcohol, and slight dry hop. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, dry hop, sweet malt, alcohol, slight smoke, and slight hop. Overall, good appearance, body, and aroma. I would have liked a stronger smoke presence, but still a good beer.
