3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
When poured into the glass it produces a dense rocky tan head. The beer itself is red-brown coloured. The flavour is rich in smoke, bacon and some hops.
Aromas of smoke, bacon, malt and a little bit of realy dark chocolate, some earthy hops and smoke in the aftertaste. Good carbonation, enough to keep it refreshing.
Probably THE icon of franconian smoked beer. I can recommend it.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2015 Tap @ fermentoren Aarhus. Pours dark brown amber with a beige head. Aroma of meat, smoked sausages, weak bacon, leather, caramel malts and of course smoke! the taste has lots of umami and meat notes. also some smoked malts, caramel, leather and some dry grainy notes. One of the better smoked beer but I guess this is just not my style...

Dark brown with tan head. Smoke, sausage, caramel and floral. Slick, ash and meaty finish with nice noble hop bite. Overall: Chill incarnated. Very balanced and not as smokey as some say.

Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours dark reddish brown with a medium sized, off white head. Aroma has lots of smoke, leather, meat, bacon, sausage and peat. Taste has a nice sweetness to balance out the smoke, that is less prominent here. Not very dry, but mellow and nice, despite being pretty smoky in the aroma. Avg carb and light, smooth body.

0,50 bottle purchased at the Beertija pub in Rijeka/Fiume and consumed in Opatija/Abbazia - Croatia on a hotel terrace over the sea at night. Pours chestnut honey bright, infinite brownish head lasting. Nose: smoked provola or better mozzarella cheese, hint of bacon, lavender, background of fresh herbal hops. Mouth: medium-soft carbonation, grassy, roasted grains, easy going beer I must say. Dry finish with distinctive bitterness. The regular Rauch is far better tough this rocks too!
