Portland, Oregon - Belmont Station
Now having had a few smoked beers, I have decided this style just isn't for me.. This beer has a strong smoke flavor with some caramel and wood. It is nowhere near as bad as Schlenkerla's smoked beer, but it isn't my favorite and I am having a hard time finishing it.
This one is like drinking 2 beers at once.The caramel and the smoked taste don't seem to balance,but rather co-exist with each other.Despite that quirk or because of it,I enjoyed this unique taste(another BBQ in a bottle!).
