My first rauchbier. Smells like bacon, tastes like slow cooked ribs. The smoke isn’t so dominating in the flavor, it is a well balanced component of the malty flavor, not the only flavor in the beer. Quite tasty

Piana obfita, piękna, kremowa. Kolor piwa brązowy. W aromacie przyjemna dawka dymu. Raczej średnie wysycenie i średnia pełnia. W smku raczej słaba goryczka i ponownie dym od drewna. Na pewno ciekawe marcowe, ale ogolnie to dość średnie

From a 5year old bottle into a Chimay glass. Pours brown with head and lace. Aroma of liquid smoke, pulled pork, smoked wood. Light carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of burnt malts, molassas, minerals, slight liquid smoke, slight chocolate. Overall unique, flavorful, generally an aquired taste, but tasty for the style, well worth tasting after understanding what this is as a smoked brew. Amazingly potent after many years.

From a 500ml bottle on 14/6/2016. Pours a very deep amber with a biggish head. The nose features smoke, bacon, ham and ash. All of these feature in the flavour, which is joined by some caramel, brown sugar and a little honey. Features a modest bitterness. The texture is slightly syrupy and the carbonation average. Very cohesive and well balanced. A delightful smoked beer.

Clear brown, nice head. Aroma: smokeyness, malt, caramel. Full body, medium to heavy sweetness, medium bitterness. Taste: at he beginning malty and appleish, but later smoke dominates till aftertaste. Some bitterness at the finish. Not much is happening, but there’s everything that should be.
