Probably the best smoked beer I’ve had so far. Smell nuts, smoked, malts. Very nice color, dark brown with a deep red glow. Nice taste and a pretty good body considering only 6.2 ABV.

black and white beer... both taste and aroma contain a lot of, well, smoke... but not much else, which is a shame.. texture starts out oily, but turns watery after a few sips... nice salty, warming (firelike) finish

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Mild nutty-smoky aroma, with tangy malt sweetness and light citrusy notes. Dark amber clear with light haze, topped with off-white creamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with medium malt sweetness, pilsner malt with mild smoke. Stays medium sweet with mild chalky bitterness and light tannins. Finish is bitter with dry after, nutty sweet with a bit of smoke.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2011 (Bottled) I always anticipate trying new Smoked beers , your palate recieves a bizzare and pretty fucked up expereince by their "unique nature". This take on a Rauchbier is decent ,if slightly subdued on the uncompromising smoke character that makes this style worth drinking .
If you’re gonna set fire to malt and drink its ashes-it should be more intense than here . The customary smoked character of course , like liquid pepperoni is here ..and the palate is pretty rich and earthy, maybe hops coming through & it looks great in a Schneider Glass. THE SMOKE NEEDS THE VOLUME TURNED UP!!.

Bottle from Bruisin’. This is a classic take on a rauchbier with no real surprises. The aroma is smoky, first and foremost. It has that bacony quality like beech smoke. A little sour twang is noticeable. The smokiness is good, reminiscent of Schlenkerla though nowhere near as powerful. Vegetal flavors are present. Overall I am very happy with the brew. However, it isn’t as full bodied or as smoky as others I prefer.
