ran into a fellow beer geek when he recommended this wonderful beer to me. popped off the cap and the smokey aroma that reminds me of pork or smoked bacon. deep amber hue with a fluffy head and lacing around the glass .

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a dark brown colour, verging on black. Small white head.

Smells nicely smokey and dark. Reminds me of smoked Bavarian cheese.

Tastes quite dark, nutty, and malty, with that smoke constantly in the background.

Overall I really like this beer, the smoked flavours really make it great.

A: dark amber brown color, little head

S: sweet, floral, smokey caramel

T: the smokey notes are much stronger in the aroma than they are in the flavor. Flavor is ver clean, crisp, darker malt qualities. Toasty, nutty, light, refreshing.

M: light body, clean and crisp.

O: very much enjoyed this beer. Truly hit the spot. Sets a high bar for smoked beer. Satisfies a want for a savory quality yet balances itself out with that clean, refreshing quality.

Highly suggest this.
