The smokey nose was the first thing I noticed until I took my first sip. The smoke permiated the beer, and yet it was nicely balanced with a hint of sweetness at the start and a nice hopped bitterness in the end. I thought this was a very good example of a rauchbier. I think I have also found a new beer to make my BBQ sauce with. I enjoyed this beer and will more than likely drink it again.

Clear beautiful deep autumn auburn color with a fair beige head. The signature smokiness I’ve come to love and appreciate from this series. Soft. That great campfire character. Tremendous. A great drinkable smoke.

super smoky, but a fresh smoky, like the fire is burning strongly and the sausages were just cooked, not like how your sweatshirt smells in the morning. Strong but smooth, light, leaves a great rustic/smoky tastes in the back of your mouth.

creamy medium foam. redish dark color. smoke and bacon is very apparent in the smell, i also smell hints of (maybe hazelnut) liquor. slick texture, medium body. bacon and smoke again in the flavor, more subtle though than the smell would suggest. medium bitter finish. overall the flavors were not as strong as the smell would suggest.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piękny aromat a’la grodziskie z butelki. Piana obfita, trwała, grube pęcherze, lacing średni. Piwo bardzo wędzone. Kolor ciemnoczerwony, pełny. Klarowne. W smaku słodycz, lekki karmel i gorycz. Wszystko dosyć stonowane, w postaci dodatków do konkretnego wędzenia. Odczucie w ustach pełne, ale nie intensywne. Gaz rozchodzi się po całej jamie ustnej, lecz szybko znika. Goryczka lekko ściągająca.

Dark brown color with creamy head. Very good lacing.
Roast aromas, mainly smoky. Also some fruits and some of caramel and vanilla.
In mouth it is slightly bitter. Medium body and a bit oily. Good carbonation. To sum up, equilibrated but slight flavor.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a tiny dark brown head. Aroma of smoked wood, caramel and bread. Quite salty taste. Almost no carbonation. A bitter finish. Not my piece of cake.
