Bottle @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours clear dark amber with a creamy head. Sausage, bacon, caramel, grain and pipe-tobacco. Smooth and dry finish. Nice.

crossovert (7565) - 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.

Travlr (12286) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy chestnut color, tan head. Nice aroma of lightly toasted ham. Taste is more beer than smoke, decent stuff.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Tap. Clear dark amber to brown body with a tight bubbled off-white head. The nose is super meaty and smoky with some caramel malt. The flavor is a bit sweeter and huskier than I like, with a fairly muted smokiness due to the sweetness. Medium bodied with a bit of clinginess on the finish and soft carbonation. Not a favorite for the style, too sweet.

Moravius (529) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2014
Vom Faß im Brauereigasthof in Zeil am Main. - Tiefes Kastanienbraun mit goldenem Schimmer, klar; sahniger beigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase deutlicher „schwarzer“ Rauch (Buchenrauch), aber auch schön fruchtig zitroniger Hopfen. - Antrunk röstmalzig und vollmundig karamelsüß mit kräftiger Rauchnote. Dahinter deutlicher fruchtig-herber Hopfen (Orange, leicht zitronig), der im weiteren Verlauf stärker wird und die Rauchnote in den Hintergrund drängt, bis man meint, ein stärker gehopftes fränkisches Dunkles vor sich zu haben. Mild rezent. Im Abgang fruchtig-erdiger Hopfen, leicht trocken, angenehm säuerlich abgeschmeckt. Mild bitterer Nachtrunk. - Vorzügliches, vergleichsweise kräftig gehopftes Rauchbier mit nicht zu stark ausgeprägter Rauchnote und schöner, vollmundiger Karamelsüße.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Draft, Snallygaster. Large beige head with nice lacing atop dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, smoked caramel, bacon. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some smoke, smoked cheese and meat. Sticky light-medium body.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle, enjoyed within the confines of friendship and the walls of the Hessen Haus.
Pours a dark amber color with a great head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is totally that sort of bacon/smoked meat thing. It’s got some fall leaves going on... it’s generally just rich, smoky, and aromatic. Totally inviting.

The flavor is fairly smoky/meaty, but is far less rich than the aroma lets on. It’s malty but not overly sweet and allows for some herbal hops to shine through.

Very drinkable!

Lekko wędzone piwo, w którym nic się nie dzieje. Z tego samego kraju jest schlenkerla, a przykładu z nich nie wzięli.

JK (4520) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle purchased in Portland, Maine. Dark brown color, tall lacing head that lasts some time. Good smoke aroma and good smoke flavor. I don’t think it is quite up to Schlenkerla or Spezial quality, but this is a good smoked beer.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2014
500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Nice brown, small head. Sticky mashy starchy aroma. Sweet taste, same as the aroma - papery and starchy. Only gently smokey. A bit meh, to be honest. Palate is smooth.
