Bought through mailbox, Chicago .. . bottle: a sneaky 10.14oz bottle- tricksters! .. . sweet maple, smoke, and sweet bbq pit .. . dark tan, with light sturdy head .. . wonderful playfulness on the tongue, a little sweet, a little smokey- a fun delicious beer! .. . a bold body for this style, not as silky as some but the smoke presence is great! .. would love to have more than just this one bottle, a great dutch brew!! .. . The butler is head of the kitchen and dining room. I keep everything tidy.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy amber orange color with small creamy off-white head. Aroma of smoked sausage, ham, leather with some earthy hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt supported with strong smoke character, following is umami with some fruity notes, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Liquid smoked sausage :)

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent smoked beer. Obviously, the smoke is the dominany flavor, but it isn’t overwhelming. It is a weaker bodied beer, with a hint of alcohol at the beginning and end. Tried with Dave at the brewery in April, 2012.

Amber color, beige head. Smokey aroma and taste. Nice bitterness too. Not as smokey as a schlenkerla, but nicely balanced. Very good rauchbeer!

Dobre i pachnace dymem piwo wedzone. Ciemne, dymne i smaczne, dosc tresciwe. Ale inny maja jednak harakter piwa z Bamberga, bardziej mi odpowiadaja. Tu byla wieksza slodowosc. Ale i tak doba rzecz.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Bottled. Clear amber color, medium head. Aroma of malt, lovely smoke like the german rauchs, bacon, hint of citrussy hop, burned wood. Dryish woody taste, sharp smoked (the good way), nice bitter touch that balances well. Good body. Lovely smoked beer like the traditional german smoked ones.

bottle. murky root beer colored under a large beige head. smoked pepperoni aroma. palate is light to medium and creamy. flavor is mostly smoked/charred meats but also has an interesting fruity hop note that goes well with the smoked malt like grilled pineapple or peaches.

This amazing rauchbier pours clear amber with a thick tan head. Aromas of cooked bologna and hickory smoke abound. Malty but in balance with a long smoky fade.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 On tap @ the brewpub $ bottled @ home. The aroma has smoked meat, caramel and grassy german hops. Clear, amber coloured beer with a lasting off-white head. The taste is slightly bitter, has sweetness, bacon, caramel and grassy hops. The body is bit fuller than the Bamberg versions of this beer. Really well made Rauchbier. I like to add, this is for me the best beer from Emelisse. Absolute top in its style.
