Pour amber to dark brown colour with a sizeable and unstable head. Decent lacing. Promising aroma of ham, caramel with a vestige of dark chocolate, grain - nice, almost intense enough. Some metalic tones are discernible at firs but they vanish into thin air when the beer gets warmer. Ham or bacon smokiness is more present in the taste, light caramel and chocolate play a minor role but can be found as well. Smoke and light herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. A very good choice when you don’t want to go to extremes (by extremes I mean Schlenkerla) but still are panting for a bottle of smoked beer.

Bottle… best by 3/15/15. It pours a dark ruddy brown color with a very nice creamy khaki head. The aroma is classic German rauchbier with smoked wood, ham, hints of malt and brown sugar. Lightly spicy. The flavor is more of the same with an emphasis on the wood smoked malt, lighter notes of spiced ham, caramel and brown sugar. The finish is nicely dry, woody and smoky. There’s a sweetness that pervades, but it accents the smoke perfectly. The mouthfeel is a bit light and lacking IMO, but that’s really my only complaint. Otherwise, a really nice Smoked beer.

Arek (422) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle 0,5 l, Drink Hala, Wrocław, Poland. Brązowe piwo o jasnobeżowej, grubej, puszystej i sztywnej pianie oraz lekko owocowym i lekko wędzonym zapachu. W smaku pełne, dobrze zbalansowane, słodowe, z bardzo łagodnymi wędzonymi posmakami i minimalną goryczką na finiszu. Podsumowując, mało wędzonki, ale piwo jest dobre i przyjemnie pijalne.

4 oz draft pour at Birch and Barley. Poured a clear ruby brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was slightly smoky, with some meaty bacon character. Flavor was nice caramel character, roasted malts. Mostly mellow, which was quite nice. Thankfully not over-the-top liquid smoke notes.

como (231) - POLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Butelka 22.03.2015. Obok aromatów wędzonych jest też spory udział diacetylu. Lekki gwóźdź nie potwierdza się na ciepło. Kolor ciemno-rubinowy, klarowne. Piana obfita, średnio-pęcherzykowa, szybko opada, nieznacznie firankując. W smaku wyraźna karmelowa podbudowa prosząca się o kontrę goryczkową która nie przychodzi. Goryczka minimalna, zalegająca. Dodatkowo nuty melanoidowe.

500ml swing-top bottle. Filtered caramel burgundy body. Foamy, glass lacing head. One of the more straight-forward, down the middle examples of the style. Smoky caramel amber malt aroma. Smooth caramel malt tones. OK, not really as good as Bamberg examples.

crossovert (8481) - Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2014
500ml swing-top bottle. Seems to be a fresh import. Very brown and almost murky pour. Struggles to form a head and finally does but it is very soapy looking, some nice lacing as it recedes. Smell is mostly landjäger and some dark bread. Very meaty smoke scent. Flavor is again lighter on the smoke, bit of metal, nice dryness, some herbal hops, some malt sweetness, very well-balanced for a rauchbier.Maybe a bit thin on the mouthfeel. It’s enjoyable and expensive but cheap for a shelton product. Probably won’t usurp Schlenkerla anytime soon though.
