3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out a nice fire pit quality, with some ash and a touch of roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with ash, smoke, and some leather. Medium intensity smokiness. Balanced and clean, but nothing overly interested. Solid.

Smoked lager, at Festival Bières et Saveurs 2009.Light brown colour, with big soapy white head. Served too cold.Average mouthfeel, some smoke of course in the aroma. A good lager and smoke, but not that drinkable, a glass was too much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2009-06-06. Dark amber body is essentially headless. Smokey pulled pork and bbq aroma. Flavour is fairly mild, touch of smokey undertones that have a subtle layer that I am not fully appreciating. Average palate. Average beer that is lost on me with the smokey character. Meh. On tap at Mondial 2009, Montreal

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 My Bottom Line:
A compelling smoked meat personality flows through the quenching, lean body finishing into a gripping finale where this lengthy earthy smoke evolves into a supporting leafy hop bitterness. A simple and effective Rauchbier from Trou du Diable which has to seduce with its thorough fumes and captivating finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A clinging sheet of foam decorates the clear bronze.
-Carbonation is calm and the body quite snappy.
-A light underlying fruitiness adds some complexity.
-The malty body could be fuller and more expressive to really take this one into the realm of greatness, but as is, it remains a smashing quencher.
On tap at Vices et Versa and at the brewpub.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Church Key DC: Pours a transparent copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of rich earthy smoke and sweet toasty caramel malt with a touch of light fruity notes. Starts with average fullness and some nice light malty sweetness with good smoky complexity before a drier, smooth finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but has a good smoke profile.
