"a little lighter on the smoke than i was hoping for. a pleasant enough brew that shows a little fruit and carmel in the nose and flavor. medium bodied. subtle.

Nice dark amber color. Small amount of head. Smells of dark smokey malts. Leaves a dry feeling on the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a better beer than I had imagined. Pours a crystal clear amber. Very slight aroma of smoke but mostly caramel and malt. Flavor has more smoke but it isn't overpowering. Not a fan of the style but this is probably the best one I've ever had. Medium bodied. Very nice beer.

12oz bottle pours a cloudy amber color with off white head. plenty of carbonation and floaters. minimal lacing so far. strange aroma of caramel and smoke. almost a semi sweet smell. flavor is well...caramelly sweet smoke. almost a medium bodied lager but this is not a good smoked beer.

Bottle. Pours red with a small head. Aroma has malts and caramel, kinda boozy. Nice, smoky and sweet flavor, malty overall. Little chocolatey at the end. Pretty decent. 4.5% alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo: Poured a dark natural golden honey color that appeared as a burnt amber hue while only a thin layer of head graced the top of my beer. The aroma was full bodied with a rich base of caramel malts that really gives off a scent of smokiness. The flavor is pure rauch with a thick taste of smoked malts that makes this beers one the better rauch or amber style beers I’ve come across.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: very clear bronze to amber color, small tan head
Aroma: rich malt, roasted malt, pretty intense aroma
Taste: coffee, smoky, strong dark malt for an amber, some hops show themselves on the finish
Palate: highly carbonated, not dry at all, minimal aftertaste
Overall: pretty strong malty smokiness dominates this beer, pretty good I just prefer more hops than malt

Bottle. The look is clear, off white head, and amber in color. The smell is smoke, plastic, malt, band aid, and ok. The taste is blah, malt, water, caramel, and smoke.
