4.17/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer is listed at 7.0% in the taproom now. Don't think it is actually 9% anymore.

There is always something new and interesting at the Taproom, but their ability to consistently knock it out of the park is so impressive. This was a great example of that.

APPEARANCE: A thin, quarter-inch head topped the 16oz. pour from Matt at the taproom. It receded rather quickly and underneath it left a deep mahogany colored beer that was much darker than expected. It was a bit hazy, but not too much.

SMELL: Wood chips and smoke. This was a gorgeous aroma, but it could stand to have been a bit stronger.

TASTE: Smoky with a slight dose of bacon. The smoke dominates and makes this a very mellow beer. A slight malt-flavor kicks in in the end, providing a nice little dose of sweetness, but ultimately this is a dry beer.

MOUTHFEEL: The best way to describe the feel of this beer is ticklingly sparkly. It is thinner bodied than I would expect from this beer, but still full of flavor. As I mentioned above, it is very dry until the very tail end where a kick of sweetness comes in to play.

OVERALL: Avery nails another style. In fact, they nail the style then take it in a uniquely Avery direction. That's what happened here.
