Initial rauchbier-like peat-kilned smokiness gains brown-sugared pineapple adjunct and honeyed amber graining. Grilled pineapple tartness picks up orange-candied red apple, red grape and tangerine tang that subverts its peaty wood-burnt bog. An offbeat hybridized peculiarity.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, fabulous brown-bodied peach version of liquefied swisher cigar drapes dried peach puree syruping atop dank blunt-like cannabis acridity, oats-smoked pale wheat malts and crisp charcoal-fired tobacco roast. Peach blunt likeness picks up subdued black grape, walnut and black chocolate undertones as well.
On tap at Plank Pizza, uniquely hybridized rauchbier takes cannabis-derived blunt cigar flavoring to a new level. Dark-roasted mocha malting drapes dry Concord grape adjunct, tobacco-roasted peat smokiness and hash-oiled lupulin musk. Oak-smoked wheat influence, dank earthen soiling and charred walnut sear add depth.
Thinning peat-smoked maple malting (with a beechwood hint) drapes roasted hazelnut-pecan-walnut conflux and faded honey-glazed bacon sear. Dissipating maple influence allows phenol peppery-hopped astringency to ransack dry-malted raw molasses finish.
Complacent autumnal Bavarian moderation lacks depth and gets soapy. Checkered cherrywood-smoked mocha malts and Band-Aid aromatics fade into oblivion. Washed-out beechwood char and musty hickory-singed cured meat snip lost amongst brisk carbolic fizz to sooty backend.
Overreaching experimental smoked ale clashes peppery rauchbier-like meat curing against cake-frosted doughnut likeness for a peculiar mix that runs out of steam by its worn-out finish. Beechwood, cherrywood and hickory smoked malts make initial impression, contrasting pastry-like pancake battering, aromatic vanilla sweetness and syrupy maple sinew. Applewood-smoked bacon, glazed ham and charred cedar illusions get lost amongst crowded concoction in conspicuous bright pink bottle.
