Depending upon one's definition, this offering is either a hearty rauchbier or a smokey bock. Since the smoke is so prominent, I will go with the former.

Appearance is an autumnal burnt orange with half a finger of head that dissipates quickly. There is a faint hint of smoke in the nose, but it does not portend the deep smoke in the flavor.

Smoke is certainly up front in the taste, especially on the finish. Malty flavors also abound and compliment the smoke very well. There is a light malty sweetness on the finish which contrasts the smokiness nicely.

All-in-all a very good effort.
