This is a perfect example of a junky infographic: Information is forced into an unnatural shape for aesthetic purposes in a way that detracts from understanding the information.

Maybe that's the point.

Maybe it's just supposed to be stuck up on the wall of some trendy hipster microbrewery. Then the whole point of that infographic is to NOT be easily understood. Only to look compliocated and jargony.

Kinda like how Starbucks had infornographics to convince everyone how burnt coffee beans are superior.

Oldiron_79: poorjon: BumpInTheNight: smoked meat? Wat.

It's called a rauchbier. They're made with beechwood smoked malt and taste like bacon.

You sonofabiatch, you just divided by 0


Smoked malts are amazing. They've expanded quite a bit outside classic Rauchbier styles. We have a Micro Brewery here on Long Island called Blind Bat. They have a "Hellsmoke Porter" that makes you think you were eating a pulled pork sandwich at that very moment and just followed it with as swig of beer. It's sublime.

From his website; "In the case of my Hellsmoke Porter, I smoke a portion of the grains myself over alder and applewood."

How can you go wrong?

Uchiha_Cycliste: I ESPECIALLY like the Oaked Arrogant Bastard, it's stronger than the regular but manages to have a much milder taste, and being easier to drink. It amazes me.


That's because it's Oaked.

When you use Oak in brewing, either putting the beer in an aged oak barrel or onto oak chips, it imparts flavors of the wood itself and anything that's been in it before. You get a nice flavor from the oak, but it also mellows the sharper flavors at the same time.

/has an beer in secondary that's sitting on oak whiskey barrel chips right now

Somewhat useless without examples of beers falling into which categories.
