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

joeneugs (3498) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
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 (207) - 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.

radagast83 (5086) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2014
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.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2014
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 (7961) - 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 (13458) - 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 (5108) - 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 (606) - 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.
