I love this beer. I know this is one of those "take it or leave it" beers. I have brought growlers of it to parties and people don't take to the smokey aftertaste of a rauchbier. I would love to see Victory brew this more regularly. I haven't had it in two years and I check the taplist regularly. This is one of the better rauchbier said I have had.

Holy liquid smoke! I felt like I had been sitting near a camp fire from the smells and taste coming from my glass.
