One of my friends bought this at Los Manantiales Liquor Store for his birthday ,well its kind of difficult to me to review this because its quite an unusual taste and aroma;Bacon/Pork notes...yes you read that right.And quite complicated aftertaste so full of notes that a low temperature are hard to identify.However this beer its a unique recipe and so a different experience for beer,although not my thing

Das erste Rauchier. Dunkel, cremig mit einem schönen Schaum. Intensives Raucharoma, spannend. Toll zu deftigen Speisen. Erinnert ein wenig an einen sehr guten Schinken.

First Rauchbier I ever drank. Interesting smell, of course as others wrote it reminds of ham or bacon, but it reminded me even more about "Lapsang Souchong" I used to drink regularly a few years back.
It was the last bier in a tasting evening, it’s certainly interesting to pair this beer with food.
I’m certainly looking forward to discover other Rauchbier.

500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours chestnut brown with a big white long-lasting head. Aromas of smoked cheese, ham, and soy. In the now immortal words of a friend of a friend, "It tastes like I have a pork product in my mouth." I think she was vegetarian. About halfway down it starts to taste like a more normal beer, which I guess is your brain adjusting.

This is a fantastic beer. Mahogany, big white head. Superb flavours of bacon and smoked ham. Taste is wonderfuly balanced, despite the strong smokiness: just the right level of sweetnees and bitterness. Long aftertaste.

Love this smoked beer. Deep dark brown pour with slight creamy head. Aroma hits you like a powerful campfire, with malts and oak as well. The taste has a nice smoked ham flavor with some burn sugar, caramel, and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and nicely carbonated. Not too flat or too thick. Wonderful.

Bière brune. Senteur de fumée, de saucisse et de bacon. Goût de malt fumé bien présent mais sans tout recouvrir. Très interessant et très bon !

From a bottle. The initial impression is that this is very smoky. It’s also tasty and refreshing. Creamy, somewhat malty.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (26:-). Rök och charkuterier i doften som påminner om bränt trä. Även i smaken finns det rök och charkuterier men också lakrits.
