3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of burnt oak, campfire, peat and slight caramel. Appearance is reddish light brown with white head. Flavor matches the nose with a very slight milk chocolate taste. Palate is bubbly and creamy. Good and different on the Doppelbock side of things.

The commercial description is spot on. A smoother, creamier version of the rauchbier. I do appreciate anything with smoke, but I still prefer the ’punch you in the face’ aroma and flavor of the marzen and urbock, as oppossed to this mellow, vanilla campfire presented here. The flavor is definitely like licking a burnt piece of wood. Very nicely done.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Copper with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is very appetizing! Barbecue cooking on the pit with pork and sausage smothered in a tomato and brown sugar based sauce. That’s it in a nutshell. Taste is smoky but sweet. Sweet malt, caramel, light bits of brown sugar atop burning wood, barbecued meats and smoke. Body is medium with a very soft carbonation. Ends with more smoke, burnt wood, barbecue, and caramel. This is delicious! It’s unfortunate that this was not out during the summer. Would go perfect with any cook-out.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is very smokey and if smoke beers are your thing you will love it. I will give it credit for being what it’s supposed to be. The appearance is orange gold with a thin head and has very little carbonation. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin and watery. Overall a smoke beer for smoke beer lovers, which i am not.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours a clear reddish brown with a dense and stable off-white head leaving some lacework. Sweetish aroma of caramel and baconish smoke. Quite a rich and full body with a solid base of caramel, smoky in a rubbery way with a fairly bitter finish. 141210

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[500ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine, Edinburgh] Pours a rather nice copper colour with a pearly white head. Aromas of smoke – very similar to those thin packet frankfurters. In fact, it’s like every smoked meat dish you’ve ever come across. Having had the Rauchbier Marzen this Eiche is less crazy and slightly sweeter – but still very much the smoke monster (albeit a small monster compared to their other beers). The oak does make a difference – but at the end of the day you’ll either love this or hate it. Doesn’t really do it for me, I’m afraid

Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma and taste of smoke, not as much ham as expected. Sweet with a lot of carbonation. Good but not excellent. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (thx Travlr). Pours light amber with an off-white head. Flavor of shoe leather, beef jerky/bacon, malt sweetness, and salt. Grows on you after a few sips.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Clear dark amber color, beige head. Aroma similar to what I imagine the Lord of the Flies set must have been, with burning pig flesh all around. Taste has campfire, bacon, light spice, lots of malt, ashtray - everything but the marshmallows. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good Stuff here. Smokey, as is to be expected, but there was also an undercurrent of sweetness that balanced everything out. Good mix of caramel and smoke, like maybe caramel covered bacon or something.
