Red Duck Smokey & The Bear

Style
Smoked Chocolate Stout
ABV
7.6%

It’s pretty hard to picture a beer that wouldn’t work wonders while camping but Red Duck’s Smokey & The Bear feels particularly well suited. The smoked chocolate stout is rich, campfire-like and at 7.6 percent ABV, it packs in a little bit extra compared to a standard dark beer.

The first sip took me immediately to Germany’s city of Bamberg and its famed rauchbiers, with this beer creating a smokey mix of bacon and beechwood crackling in a fire pit. You’ll also find layers of smooth and velvety chocolate fudge, bitter dark chocolate and further roasted notes akin to freshly-ground coffee beans. Hopefully, there are only so many ice-cold days left in Victoria but while they remain, Smokey & The Bear is the kind of companion ready to join you under the stars.
