A dark beer with notes of smoke and tar (compare to smoked whiskey). The beer is known as "Rauchbier" in Germany. Perfect to the sausage and the ham after the fishing nets has been put out. Is gaining on being aged in it's barrel.

Backlog I love a good rauchbier! This wasn’t great, but it’s decent. If I recall correct this was a little too sweet for my taste.

Flaska från SB. Rubinbrun färg med fingertjockt skum. Dofter av rökta korvar och säd. Lite asfalt i smaken som snabbt försvinner. Lite väl tunn munkänsla. Inte så pjåkig.

FatPhil (12760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 19, 2012
Cask (Bishops Arms Bellmansgatan, Stockholm) (6-:4:6-:3:12+=3.1+)
Pleasant soft smokiness. Fairly watery palate. Super high drinkability. Nice dark lager - smoke is a very pleasant component, but very subtle. Not too sweet, unlike some smoky dark lagers. A slamming session beer.

3fourths (8982) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2012
draft at Akkurat in Stockholm. clear copper body with a foamy and rocky white head. robust and rich nose of honey-drizzled smoked ham, light touches of campfire and peat. with time develops more of a Munich toffee note that’s rich and sticky. medium-light body with superb balance - toasted, firm malt with good acid, low hop rate, medium sweetness that works well for it’s 5% size. perhaps the closest to the real thing I’ve had outside of Germany.
