Sample from 77ships. Many thanks! Very complex woody, smoky nose. Campfire, smoked sausages, some caramel sweetness, light and easy drinkable. Very nice rauchbier!

From bottle @ Bamberg comes to Skovhaven. Pours hazy dark amber with an off white head. Aroma of smokey sausage, bread, toast, hoppy notes. Taste is smokey sausage, hoppy, bitter finish, malty. Not my thing, but not flawed in any way.

Idiosynkrasie (6173) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2016
330ml bottle. Moderately cloudy, reddish, dark amber colour with small, creamy, fairly lasting, minimalyl lacing, off-white to beige head. Sweet-ish, caramel malty and smoky aroma, a touch of peat, beech-wood, gammon. Taste is mildly smoky, slightly bitter, slightly nutty malty basis without remnant sweetness, a cautious touch of chalk and ashes; flat carbonation. Very well balanced, but the flat carbo cuts my enthusiasm substantially.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Bottle (Served by A..Gänstaller himself):Amber coloured with a ruby sheen, unfiltered; solid dryish (woodfire and ham) smokey nose, some sweet malt underneath; solid dryish bitter-sweet flavour,almost full (!) bodied and pretty soft; lingering bitter-fruity finish with a delicate smokey "tail". Extremely well balanced and tasty...

Borefts Beer Festival 2015. Hazy copper with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of bready malt and meaty smoke. Sweet malty flavour with a nice smoked character. Clean and very tasty

Draught at Tribaun, Innsbruck
Cloudy amber color. The aroma is like a smoked sausage box. Good body, supported by mild sweetness; good malt flavor, it has hints of fruity esters, powerful smoke flavor, flows down the throat like a cigarette, and gets drier in the final. The acidity is very low, hence not much like a sausage.
Somehow not as much as Schlenkerla; it’s also sweeter and less roasty. But it’s already a large effort.
