Just a smoke bomb.

After getting hopped out this beer is a palette cleanser of smoked meat and wood. Pair with a peaty scotch like Ardbeg and a fat cigar.....maybe some beef jerky.....

At 5.4 it's a good BBQ beer and you can swig a good amount of this one.....

I can hear the horses winnie from here as Frau Blucher enters the fray....

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of beechwood smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follws the smell and has flavors of smoked malts along with notes of Band Aids.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't too difficult to drink because the smoke is not overpowering, but novices might not be able to get past the Band Aid flavors.
