eaglefan538 (3016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2016
American smoked ale pretty much. Bottle. Pour was copper brown and the head was thin to near nil. Aroma of smoke and caramel. Flavor followed, lacked complexity, but it was tasty and nice. Just not a great example of the style. Moderate body. Probably more sessionable than most rauchbiers.

Thin body and modest flavor. Aroma was decent. Clear brown color. Flip top bottle adds nothing but cost.

Dark brown rauchbier with a smoky bacon aroma, a malty caramel flavour with bacon undertone. The finish is rather light but this is a pleasant and tasty smoked beer.

This beer is an example of something that doesn’t have to be complex to be excellent. Although this doesn’t work so well with aromas as a simple aroma isn’t terribly impressive. Whereas, for flavor it’s basically more or less just malts and smoke, but with the carbonation and the subtleties of the yeast and the precise balancing of these qualities that yields mastership. Perfect finish.

superspak (4388) - Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2015
500 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Listed as 4.9% on the label. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of wood smoke, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, slight fruitiness, herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/smoked malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big wood smoke, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, slight fruitiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wood smoke, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/smoked malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice rauchbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready/smoked malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma was slightly smoky and aromatic. Flavor was malty sweet with smoked meat, caramel and had a hint of peat.

djoeye (3170) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; fawn big head and copper clear body. Aroma; tar, peat, salted liquorice, faint floral notes. Taste; brown malts, peat, ham, some caramel, some grass - leading to a soft short finish. Normal texture and soft carbonation. Not complicated at all, but short finish. Not super-exciting. [50cl brown bottle 4.9%abv BB11-02-2016 Greetings to Bierothek in Bamberg DE, T@Ferie2015]
