swing top bottle (500ml).-Courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!)
Dark amber coloured, medium sized pale tan head, strong smoked nose with touch of alcohol. Heavy smoked bacon taste with notes of ash and alcohol. Smooth, simple and good rauchbock.

Marko (4096) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 26, 2009
0.5l bottle a couple of friends brought from Wien (thanks a lot Ivana and Tomislav!), shared with ogivlado. Poured a lovely murky red body on top of which perched a bigh thick off white head that went away at a medium pace. The nose is simple but nice, buttery and smokey with light notes of alcohol. The taste is dominated by the smoke, reminding me of Dalmatian smoked bacon (panceta), built on top of a nice, very pleasant sweet maltiness with a light alcohol presence trailing behind. Somewhat buttery too. Fine mouthfeel. Sweetish, not too complex, but damn tasty.

TaktikMTL (6088) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Bouteilles de 1 l, avec bouchon de céréamique, partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez MartinT. Arôme: Odeur de jambon fumé avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est brune foncée. Présence d’un moyen col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel et de fumée avec une pointe chocolatée. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de fumée en arrière goût. (Rating #2194)

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
In short: A dense glass of very toasted and moderately smoked cereals. Kick-ass.
How: Bottle 1L. Bought on the premise by MartinT and consumed fresh within a few weeks. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Slightly cloudy amber body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Pleasant nose of smoked cereals, nothing extreme, just a very inviting cereals smokiness. Super nice body that is big and pillowy with a smooth carbonation. Taste of toasted cereals, bread crust, caramel, some smoke (less than in the nose), earthy notes and a hint of chocolate. Low hops presence but this is fitting here. Highly drinkable despite the nourishing body. Another fantastic brew from 7 Stern. I’ve only had two beers from this brewery but so far I can say something that my disadvantaged girlfriend will never hear from me, what a nice pair!

Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Hazy brick red-brown colour. Very nice 1-inch lacy white foam. This was out of a 1L bottle and seems straight off the draught. Earthy and caramelly in a unified way, heavy toasty, munich nuttiness, sweetish and bordering molasses, but never syrupy, all along clearly an expertly brewed lager. Very classy, if stuffy maltiness. A sweeter rauchbier, its bock base is rich and quite heavy, but it remains incredibly drinkable thanks to the plain joy it is to drink, the flavour balance, the clean toastiness and the classy, engaging carbonation. As good as their other rauchbier. Am I impressed? Sure I am. Am I surprised? Well, not really I must say.

MartinT (8218) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Within this sumptuous Rauchbock evolves smoked gouda, caramelized and bready cereals, all in a very drinkable and moreover succulent pint of wintry merriment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam laces around the cloudy copper.
-The smokiness is evocative, yet is not as intense as Schlenkerla’s, which makes it more drinkable to me.
-All of their beers were served at the right temperature. Bravo!
-Carbonation is frothy from the tap, which in this case increase the drinkability.
-Some roastiness is tasted within too.
-The body is lusciously round and easy.

On tap at the brewpub and from a 1-liter bottle.

brunnsbe (77) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2007
Draught at the brew-pub. A nice smoke lager, malty taste and sweetness from the malt. Not so much carbonation and therefore easilz drinkable. The alcoholpercent was 6.1% if I remember right.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2007
(Bottle BB ??/05/07; ABV 6.2%; Thanks Jay!) Aroma of tar and smoke. Dark amber colour and average size, white head with fair lacing. Sweet, caramel, tar and very slightly bitter flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Smooth and tasty smoked beer! 28/04/07

Geiserich (3497) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 19, 2004
Creamy, thick off-white head, good lace. Dark amber to brown color. Velvety taste, malty with hints of acid, light to medium smoky taste. Malty with pleasant smoky flavor. Pithy and full bodied, round but maybe a hint to alcoholic. Finish with a medium strong dry hop bitterness, some smoky notes. A really pleasant beer.
