3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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]

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut colored liquid with a old bone colored heavy, dense looking head. Decent lace. Aromas of dry cured hams. Hints of sweetness. Lightly toasted malt in the front. Some caramel, mild smoke, and herbal hops in the middle. A bit of acidity in the finish and into the linger. A bit thin in flavors. Need a bit more to "chew" on.
