COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made almost entirely with Bamberg smoked malt from Germany, this beer also uses 3 different Munich malts to balance with the smoke malt. An extended lagering time has given this beer a smooth full malt profile, with an intense smokey finish.

3 day old growler to pils glass Smoke, peat, bacon, and chipotle aromas. Nice reddish amber with a thin white head. A bit of sourness, then a nice lingering smokiness. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel.

Ferris (3926) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft - Oak and malty on the nose, not very strong. Clear ruby with a quick dissapating head. Peat, smoke and malt with a nice balance. Very sessionable for something with a robust flavor.

Good Rauchbier, quite enjoyable. Smoke was not overpowering, but that may be subjective depending on what you expect. I definitely could have a few of these... paired with a nice meal! I had the BBQ Chicken Pizza which was delicious.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Dark amber color with red hue, medium head. Wonderful aroma of smoke, rich and fat, woody, a bit caramelized, with hints of Schwarzwalder Schinken, like a good one from Bamberg. The body is quite thin, it was expected bolder; the mouthfeel is somehow dry; there is a good flavor of caramel and very good smoke, with wood and campfire impression, traces of ashes and with perfectly balanced bitterness. The final is good, but it suffers a bit from the lack of body.
Very well brewed, flawless; with a few more points in Final Gravity, this would get very close to some of the best German examples.

On tap at Central City brewpub, pours a clear copper / golden with a medium white head. Aroma of a firepit, ash and peat - quite intense. Flavour is the same with a noticeable sweetness as well. Finishes very ashy / firepit-like. Solid take on the style - I just am not really into it.
