What a perfect rauchbier, smells and taste like heaven. Brown beer with medium carbonation, mild smokey aroma and flavor. It is a crispy malty caramel, lager. For those like me who loves real bbq, this is perfect, 100% in the style.

Poured a clear dark brown. Tastes, well smokey. A friend of mine liked it very much, I am not to big on it. Smokey flavour isn’t what I look for in a beer. If you do, then it’ll rock your world.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought bottled 0.5 for app. 1.5 EUR.
appearance: deep reddish-amber to copper color, clear, elegant. thick and nice head, but quickly disappearing.
nose: plenty of smoke, hint of peat, dark bread,dried and smoked fruits: plums, pears and cherries. excellent
mouthfeel: very drinkable, smooth, low to medium carbonation, as for generally light marzbier can be described as full-bodied
taste: smoky notes are dominating, , definitely malty character, bitterness could be higher, gives slight impression of matured islay whisky
overall: best rauchbier I tasted so far. Drinkable, smooth, pleasant and light beer with very smoky character. Not for everyone, however denitely worth a try. Cheap and very interesting!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tastes like a beer version of a peated whisky. Beautiful, dark amber color, the head could be a bit more firm. Aromas of smoke and malt, the taste is dominated by a strong yet balanced smoke. A truly amazing Rauchbier!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
16.9 oz. bottle from Cost Plus. Very big, white head on a ruby brown body.
Nose of yeast with a hint of smoke. Mellow smoked wood flavor supported by a pleasant caramel malt body. Incredibly smooth and drinkable - no astringency despite the smoke. The almost dry finish is somewhat crisp and leaves a touch of biscuit like sweetness and a lingering smokiness. World Class.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

couleur brun foncé; mousse beige très fine; forte odeur de feu de bois (trop); goût malté et fumé; finale légèrement amère; bière intéressante malgré le fait que je n’aime pas trop ce style

From brewers droop, Bristol
Big rich smoked cheese aroma with sweet maltiness and one pence pieces (and twos). Nice deep brown with a little rediness and a fine white head. Flavour is light but significant smoke with a medium sweet and also dry maltiness with an afterglow of honey.
