At the brewery. A unique take on a Rauchbier, definitely on the sweeter side. A proper Vermont Rauchbier, heavy on the real maple syrup. Nose is massive maple and so is the flavor, with a touch of roasted malt in the finish. If you aren’t a fan of Schlenkerla style smoked beers, this is an easier beer to approach. Fits the style but really brings that earthy, maple sweetness throughout.

Pours the color and clarity of cola with a rocky, 1.5 inch, khaki-colored head embedded with pinpricks and craters. Nose is interesting - a hit of sweet, followed by smoke, followed by maple sweetness. The sweetness definitely dominates. Taste consistent with nose - the smoke is there and is also intermingled with some char; however, the maple dominates the flavor profile. Finishes with a slightly medicinal bitterness. Mouthfeel is light in body with an assertive carbonation. Overall, I like it; however, it's not what I typically expect for the style. Definitely more sweet than savory.
