3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Clear, dark copper colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweetish caramel malty and intensely but mildly smoky aroma, associations of smoked eel and smoked trout, hints of prune, bacon-wrapped prunes (Pflaumen im Speckmantel), ashes. Taste is dry, intensely smoky, peaty, hints of wet ashes, subtle hints of chocolate. Wow! One of the best smoked beers following the Schlenkerla path.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - smoked ham, some orange fruit.
Taste - yeah, orange and smoked ham.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy and smoky texture with a dry smoky finish.
Overall - a good example of the smoked style. The fruitiness balances the smoke out somewhat.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Capital Market. Hazy deep maroon in color. Nose is BBQ and dark fruit. Some sea water as well. Smoke up front in the flavor. The dark fruit and sweetness from the bock still come through. Smoke throughout, but still has the taste of a pretty good bock. Really well balanced flavors. Nothing is overpowering, just tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from co-op. Underpriced and undervalued. Perfect example of the German rauch style. Sweet, smokey aroma, more smoke in the taste. Malt, bacon, maple syrup, taste is initially sweet, followed by cured meat. Pretty solid throughout.
