3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep copper brown with off a soft white head and a little lace. The aroma is savory peppery smoked meat. The flavor is less so these things but rides out with a distinct smokiness after a balanced clean malty and earthy bitter middle. Feel is lively soft, fairly fresh, very slightly metallic. It’s just awesome. Thankfully I found a place where I can get them for ’only’ $5

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Dark brown colour with dark head. Since this is a smoked beer it has the smell of smoke. Taste is similar to other beers made from dark roasted malts but with the addition of smoke. Well, I tasted also some tar. A bit on the light side, since this beer has not as much alcohol as some of the other dark beers. But that’s OK too. Nice in the cold winter nights.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Extreem rook geur. Spek geur. Aangezien ik geen spek eet is dit een rare geur en bevalt mij dit niet echt.
In de smaak is niet extreem veel terug te vinden van de spekrook.
Ligt bitter. Erg watterig.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ CORSO ADB 2013. profumo intenso di affumicatura. Si avverte anche una nota tostata. Colore marrone, limpida, con schiuma beige abbastanza fine, solo qualche bolla grossolana. La persistenza è buona. Il gusto è dolciastro, poca astringenza da acido, amaro dato non dal luppolo ma dal tostato/bruciacchiato. abbastanza corposa, è armonica con una lieve sbavatura sull’astringenza che però la rende più bevibile di altre Rauch. buon equilibrio.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark reddish brown, Smoked ham, burnt malts, hints of tar. Medium sweetness. This is one of the universally acclaimed beers that I don’t seem personally to be able to enjoy quite as much as other people. Smokiness obviously dominates, all other traits are somewhat masked by it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is dark amber/brown with a thick creamy tan head. Nose is very smoky. Smells a lot like smoked sausage actually. Taste is pretty darn interesting. There is certainly a smokey note to it but again it tastes like it smells...smoke sausage. Its a very interesting and enjoyable beer. Mouthfeel is fairly light considering how dark it is.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is of fire embers. Great appearance, dark almost opaque with a hint of bronze. Taste is agreeable despite not being a big fan of the smell of smoke in general. There is a pleasant lingering finish which is a mixture of malt, smoke and leather.
