2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
one of those beers that sounds amazing on paper but disappoints... i mean the schenkerla maerzen is great, the urbock is even better, so therefore this should be unbelievable - but it doesn’t necessarily follow because once lagers get up over 7% it gets so much harder to make them work. for one thing the head here disappears in a second, hinting at fermentation issues. add in a strange medicinal oak smoke flavour to the alcohol flavour, and you get a big mess with the smoke and the hops and the sweet caramelly malt as well. what a shame, but at least they still make the urbock with the beech.

Very nicely balanced rauchbier. Doppelbock character dominates with maltiness and light alcohol, and the smoke in the flavor compliments the beer’s complex malt sweetness. Light amber color, crystal clear . Smoke aroma mixes with malt character in the nose, and the smoke character lasts to the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Nice, luminescent amber brown. Small white head. Big charcoal nose. Lots of smoke. Some ash. Smells kind of like the shirt you wore next to a campfire when you smell it the next day. Taste is ash and smoke forward. Some basic maltiness. A small hint of caramel sweetness. Very interesting. Could not see myself throwing back a couple of these.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden brown small tan head. Aroma of wood malt and a hint of smoke. Flavor is sweet and smokey. Not that familiar oak smoke but more emphasis on the smoke. Reminiscent of bacon. Long sweet finish, smoke lingers but a a hint. Mostly malty finish. Fun tasty beer.
