Aroma is full of smoke at first, with red and dark fruits being traceable on the back.
Taste of smoked meat, peat, dates, dark fruits. Really nice.

Overall good beer, as smoked a s a good whiskey. Great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, drunk at home. Light reddish-brown, medium carbonation but not a lot of head. Complex aroma of smoke, chocolate, meat, hints of citrus and sarsaparilla. Taste is a simple but satisfying light bitter with a long bittersweet finish. Aftertaste is more heavily bitter. Thin palette. Lovely beer, maybe slightly too heavy on the alcohol for what it is. Shame this is retired. O Emilesse rauchbier, I hardly knew ye!

Troebel bruin van kleur, kraag zakt redelijk snel weg. Ruikt naar leer, rook, sigaren, bbq spek. Smaakt rokerig , tabak, gebakken spek, mocht wat meer body hebben, de nasmaak zakt wat dunnetjes weg.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, picked up off the shelf three days ago. Pours a cloudy brown color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is definitely smokey, yet has a bit of sweetness (caramel?) underneath; however, the nose is somewhat light, to it’s a tad hard to tell. Taste is slightly bitter and strongly smoke-filled, like there’s a bit of charcoal in there. All in all, not a bad drink, though.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy light brown color with a very nice cream colored head with decent retention.
Aroma is part roasted malts and part like a sort of smoked cheese - I like it.
The taste starts bittery, quite bittery really and is complemented by some roastiness and coffee feel.
Quite nice, I must say.
