3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark cola color with a thick tan cap. Smell is smokey, bacon, peat, roast and malt. Smell is fairly thick. Taste starts with roast, caramel. The smoke is more in the middle and is not as harsh as the aroma. The body is light/medium and the beer is slippery with mild carbonation which is finely constructed. I was happily surprised as to the complex flavor and easy drinking nature of this beer.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma is wonderful, smokey wood. The taste is smoked kippers, wood and roasted malts. A sensation of burnt charcoal lingers on the lips and tongue. An excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a deep maroon, with a small off white head. The aroma is huge!! Huge notes of smoked sausage, smoked ham, bacon, charcoal, and roasted corn. Tasting notes include toffee, licorice and other medium malts, as well as barbecued sausage. This is a very unique beer, and I love it! This would go spectacular along with some summer bbq!

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark copper with a lasting foamy head and a really great smokey scent. First sip is weird for a bit, metallic in taste. After aired in the wild for a while its definetly abit better. All tho i like rauchbier this on is not as its best at the moment. The smokiness of this one is legendary tho havent tasted another one with as great smoke flavoer as this one. This one i shall re-rate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intrigued by the particular type, I decided to try this beer, colour is amber red with good persistent creamy head, aroma is of smoked salmon, in mouth is light and drinkable in body, not very teasty, but the aftertaste are only smoked and persistent...
Personal comment; For this beer one 50cl is exaggerated.

Balanced. Nose is not too smokey as is the flavour. Just the right amount of smoke but keeping it easy to drink.
