"Rauchy" Tastes like someone dropped my tripple-porter in the bonfire. Incase you didn’t check out the label this beer is smoky which is good, but it can mask the porter a bit.

Bottle provided by TheJester. 2009 edition. Jet black pour with a creamy beige head. The aroma is roasted and sweet bacon smoked. Dark fruits and smoked ham. The flavor is light roasted and smoked with a bit sour touch. Smoked ham and camp fire. Great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque brown beer, residual tan head. Fairly neutral palate but low carbonation. Light smoke on the nose. Tangy dark malts well blended with smoke. A little fruit underneath. All right.

Marheb (1966) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Une bière dont je regrette vivement la disparition. Riche texture qui soutient bien le chocolat et le café. La finale fumée est dense et attendu à chaque gorgée. Impeccable.

Bottle. poured a clear dark brown color with orange highlights. Lots of smoke in the nose. Campfire, smoked bacon, and a bit of toffee. Medium bodied and dryish. Smoky, roasty malt flavor. Pretty nice.

douglas88 (5827) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle thanks to Dany. Pours a pure black color with a very small bubble of white head. The aroma is massive sweet roast and smoke. A nice flavor of vanilla, char, smoke, roasted malts, light heat, some dark fruit. Very ashy and burnt. A thin palate. Really tasty, dusty and some sweetness plus smoke that resembles bourbon.

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2011
341ml bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a touch of reddish cola tinge. Minimal light tan head. Smoke aromas over a caramel malt, toffee sweetness, anise, toast and some roast coffee bean. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Smoke flavours are balanced well with a nice acidity, roast and chocolate.. Finish is medium, nice and satisfying.

Thx to cfrancis for this one. Ultra dark brown with a small light brown cap that prefers to hug the edges. Considerable warming out of choice on this one. Scotch like peaty aroma is very nice and compliments the dark chocolate feature as well as the deep roast qualities. Smells salty - similar to a smoked ham. Plum, mildly charcoaled wood and I can’t get cooked beets out of my head... what the hell is that about? The aroma fits right into my favorite aromas in a beer. Love the chocolate here.. and come cherries me thinks as well. Rockin’ the Ratt as well - oof! Tastes like tart salty chocolate if that is possible outside of a beer. Some obvious sour flavours from beginning to end of my glass. Cherries, big roast, more sourness.. the sourness took me off guard at the beginning but now just adds to the intrigue of this brew. Smoke and a bit of charcoal, molasses. Any chocolate that I found early is gone now. I’m starting to wonder if my palate is quitting on me here... some ichiban noodles will fix that. Smells amazing, tastes decent enough - the taste is pretty cool but it’s a pisser because I was hoping for something similar to the aroma. Kind of fascinating how the two are completely different. Slick feeling beer that leaves lots of coating and a long lasting suckable tartness. That’s hot.

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2010
341mL bottle, at least a few years old. Poured deeper brown with a short, but well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of liquid smoke, smoked beechwood, and a bit of hickory along with sour-ish oak.. chocolate and molasses beneath.. overall smoky, woody, and very enjoyable. The flavor was also centered around the smoke, building off of rising coffee and molasses at the core.. smoke of all forms around, with a lot of wet and woody character.. tart woody notes, campfire smoke, and coffee on the warm finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. lots of roast and lots of smoke.. mellowed out a bit with age, and certainly in a good way.

(bottle - 341 ml) Another big thanks to Chad for trading us this one. Dark black with a thick tan head. Big and smoky aroma with lots of wood and roasted malt notes. Flavor starts off with a meaty and smoky flavor and moves to a rather sweet and malty middle. Dark roasted malts and some chocolate permeate the middle and impart a lightly smoked but semi-sweet chocolate finish. Really good.
