A naso prevale l’affumicato, ma anche caramello, miele di castagno. Non aggressiva in bocca. Da provare alla birreria di Bamberg.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2016 La rauchbier per eccellenza. Ottima per pasteggiare con carne ed affumicati vari. Un classico senza tempo

Clear Amber pour with a thin beige head .... Aroma of smoked meats and caramel malts like peated malts but different .... Taste is of smoked oak, caramel malts, like smoked meats .... Has some light bitter notes ... Just a perfect compliment to a meat or bacon meal ... Less campfire more smoked meats so on the better end smoke wise to me ... Excellent

Botella. Color casi negro. Clara. Mucha espuma. Aroma a arenque ahumado. En boca es muy parecido al té ahumado: el Lapsang Souchong. Es un estilo muy distinto que te tiene que gustar para apreciarlo. A mí me gusta.

Darkbrown beer with brownisch head. Aroma of smoke ham, brown sugar and honey. Complex taste, smoky, bitter and sweet with average carbonation. Really special and enjoyable. I love it.

Nez délicieusement fumé, boisé, bois brûlé, fumée qui s’en dégage. Robe limpide cuivre et Ruby. Corps assez léger, fluide, alcool en retrait, multiples parfums de bois, de fumée et de céréales. Extra.

Pours a dark brownish-red with a thin white head. Aroma is smoky, tobacco, barbecue. Flavor is caramel, smoke, and barbecue. Has a light, crisp body. Very good.

0,5l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes Bier mit beiger Schaumkrone. Es riecht nach Malz und Rauch, schmeckt nach Rauch, Kaffee, Malz...recht komplex, trotzdem angenehm süffig und lecker!

Glas directly from the tap at the brewery in Bamberg, where the beer went over the counter as fast as it could be drawn from the barrel. No surprise: it’s a must-try when visiting Bamberg. Very dark brown with brownish head, it smells and tastes a lot like smoked ham. There are also aromas of the dark malts with some coffee, maybe honey. Low bitterness, but quite sweet which is an exotic combination with the "ham". Very interesting and very delicious, but I could understand somebody not liking it at all.
