Dark brown color; some bubbles, big, not really a full head. The smoked malt aroma is very nice, delicate. The body is weaker than expected, with light caramel flavor, and nice smoke presence; there is not really residual sugar, but, as the Cara-Hell from the same brewery, this one as well has almost no bitterness, therefore resulting in an almost sweet beer; in the final the caramel turns a bit into liquorice. The final, unfortunately, is quite short; at least there is not the roasted malt character of other Rauchbier. Pleasant.

bottle from 2nd Aargauer Bierfest - hazy dark ruby-brown colour with a modest head retention; fair aroma of smoked sausage; medium-bodied and with a rather low carbonation; low bitterness and quite long smokey finish with nites of bacon, butter and malt - fairly smokey but not exagerated

Sampled at the "1. Treffen der Aargauer Bierbrauer". It pours a murky brown beer with an average sized bubbly head. Caramel and raisins in the nose. Smooth taste. Moderately smoky. Quite a lot of caramel showing up. Sweet with hints of banana. Residual sugars in the finish which is reminiscent of milk chocolate and walnuts. Pleasant.
