3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL Bottle - Pours dark reddish-brown with a thick rocky light tan head. Aromas of smoke that are reminiscent of beef jerky and tobacco, wood, raisin, and malt. The smoke is very smooth on the palate and is in no way overpowering as it is slightly on the nose. Some mild chocolate come through leading to a balanced finish.

Delicious! Strong burnt wood aroma, medium body. Very smoky taste, with a hint of licorice and banana. Makes me imagine I’m in a log cabin in the winter.

Smoked beers aren't really my deal, but this has enough balance to keep it drinkable. Doesn't overpower.

Draft into tulip glass. Dark espresso color with off white, thick head. Aroma is heavy smoke, some hickory, sage. Taste is smokey malty, not sweet though. Small amount of hops, not bitter at all. Very nice mouthfeel, heavy, a little chewy almost. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 500 ml at home, many thanks to McTapps! Into a Guinness pint, ABV 5.1%
Beautiful very dark brown, almost black colour on the body, with two fingers of thick, tan head sittinig on top of it. Good retention, medium lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of smoke, peat, smoked ham, light wood.
Taste follows, lots of smoke and peat, taste like a good smoked ham. Very good.
A bit thin on the body, soft carbonation. Dry on the palate and a numbing feeling on the tongue.
Very good smoked!

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark copper hue with off white head. Aroma campfire, caramel, cola, cloves, lager-like esters. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium body and good carbonation lends to it’s creaminess. Taste is sweet initially with a savory smokiness throughout the finish combined with a nice CO2 sharpness to round everything off. Overall this is a fantastic raunch bier! Not too much of anything...well proportioned and VERY balanced!

If it weren’t for Schlenkerla’s Urbock and Eiche, this would be my favorite Rauchbier. Similar smoke notes as for the Urbock, but thinner and less robust. Still an excellent beer.
