Stilbeschreibung: Das Rauchbier hat seinen Ursprung im oberfränkischen Bamberg. Das Malz, das man für diesen Biertyp verwendet, wird über einem offenen Buchenfeuer gedarrt und erhält so seinen typischen Geschmack. Besonderheiten: Das klassische Rauchbier weist einen sehr dominanten Rauchgeschmack auf, der oft als zu dominant empfunden wird. Roog, das Rauchweizen der BraufactuM Kollektion, hat die Rauchnote entschärft, ohne dem Bier jedoch die Rauchbier-typischen Charakteristika zu nehmen. Der Dreiklang aus Rauch- und Weizenbier sowie Spezialmalzaromen ist harmonisch abgestimmt. Verkostungsnotiz: Rotbraune Farbe, trüb, mittlere Schaumbildung. Legt einen kapriziösen, sehr individuellen Auftritt hin: Die Andeutung von Orangenzesten und Banane wird überlagert von Räuchernoten wie von Wacholderschinken, die wiederum gemildert werden durch gebrannte Mandeln. Eine leise Bitterkeit hallt nach.

revolution2718 (306) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours reddish brown. Nose is wheat, a bit smoky, a bit caramelly. Taste is a smoky wheat beer. Effervescent, a bit bitter on the finish. I don't like the aftertaste, it lingers and is odd. Not great. No aecht schlerenka.

massingasetta (351) - München, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2015
Roog is an interesting beer that I have been saving up, but now had the opportunity to taste at the BKL in Munich. This brown ale is smooth as silk in its approach. It is slightly malty and smoky, but adequately smoky without too much dominance. One notices elements of Weizen without much frill. A good combo of Rauchbier and Weizen that works, but it is not the most drinkable, more a Geniesser-Bier.

pictoman (709) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
Poured from the tap. Murky medium dark brown with beige head. Light caramel, plum and fig with a very light, subtle smoke. Feels a little safe, flavour dissipates quickly in the mouth.

AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - JAN 31, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 On tap. Murky, amberish/brown liquid, with a thick off white head. Nose is a bit faint, smells of toffee, biscuits, raisins, a hint of charcoal, a hint of pear and banana. In the mouth is medium dry, not sweet at all, with the roastiness really shining through. Overall an interesting beer, worth a try.
