Bottle @ Dark amber color, malty head. Very smoked smell like a smoked soasiges. Taske is simillar like a smoked meat, start is more malty and finish is very smoked meat like. Perhaps good as a beer to grilled meat, not to drink allone of food :)

Trying to polish off some of the (too much) beer I bought. Can’t carry it all! My first rauchbier. Pours dark amber brown. Smoke / bacon on the nose. Delicious smokey flavor. Surprisingly not much malt presence for a beer this dark. So good!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pivotéka u Modrého lva. Colour is hazy copper. Medium off-white head, disappearing very quickly. Aroma smoke, bacon, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, light sour, barely any bitterness. Too sweet for my liking, in conjunction with the caramel aroma. Finish light sweet, none to light sour, more caramel than smoke. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours an unclear, brown to copper colored body topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma has some ham notes and a touch of cellar, but caramel dominates. That goes for the flavor too, there’s also some faint smokey sourness, as well as something sort of fruity, with smokey sourness in the end. Medium body. A rather nice one, but it lacks on depth and really good smokyness. 110610

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Greyish dark brown with a small head. Aroma is full of smoke, caramel, smoked plums and some candied cherries. Taste is a combination of bonfire smoke and smoked plums, with an aftertaste of smoked plums. It all reminds me of a Christmas compote with smoked plums. That being said, the body is far too weak to carry such an intensive smoky aroma. Also the bitterness is quite strong yet seems a bit out of place. I like the amount of smoke in that but the body would have to be more chewy. It’s quite a good beer but nothing more.
