look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

this beer is 1 of 4 in a collaboration between straight to ale, yellowhammer, and blue pants celebrating the legalization of bombers in alabama. this is a smoked doppelbock.

a - poured a one finger thick tan head into a willi becher that left a thin ring of lace throughout. the body was reddish-brown.
s - smokey, band-aid aromas.
t - smoke with some peat, caramel and a hint of chocolate.
m - creamy and rich.
o - just the right amount of smoke and a really solid offering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

shared 22oz bottle poured with a clear brown body and a decent head.

A good bit of medium roasted malt flavor but the moderately smokey nose is followed by an overly smokey flavor.

O: just too smokey for me but expected to appeal to those more fond of smoked beers.
