Karbach Brewing Co. – Pontificator Smoked Dopplebock – 5 out of 7 Smokestacks

Karbach Pontificator

Here’s the best smoker out of Houston. Karbach’s Pontificator smoked dopplebock. Cool label, trusted brewer. Easy to find in bombers and on tap. A couple of “sleepy” Ministry officials scribbled down “London speed it up! Houston Rocket!” and the other, “better than it smells.” I take those both as positive signs. Overall Happiness factor – 5 Smokestacks (out of 7)
