COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voilá! A beer from chilly Quebec inspired by the "rauchbier" you find in Bamberg, Germany — a dark beer made partly from smoked malt, aged slowly at low temperatures, and put in the bottle unfiltered, with a fine yeast sediment. All for one!

750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. The aroma is quite smokey. Med body. Sharpish carbonation. Flavor is smoke over something like very light citrus and some firm dark malt. Almost chocolate. Smoked chocolate? Maybe not.

A fantastic, well-balanced Rauchbier. Has that campfire characteristic that I love but isn’t overpowering and is extremely drinkable. Kind of like a good smoked porter rather than a pure Rauchbier, lots of rich dark malt flavors including cocoa sweetness. Great beer.

Metalchopz (2210) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
This Canadian rauchbier pours a very dark brown colour with a nice big beige head that is creamy, has great retention and creates lots of lace all around. Light brown-red highlights can be seen. Smells mostly like a stout, with coffee, molasses and roasted malt. The smoke aroma is almost not present. At least, it is found a bit more in the taste (I guess they did not want to shock people, that did not know about these rauchbiers). Creamy-tarty mouthfeel with a little stick to it, that is just right for this one. Overall, lacking smoke character, but still pretty good (especially for those who are new to this style).

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2010
750 pours brown with ruby edges and a huge frothy light brown head. Aroma of bacon, wood, caramel, vanilla. Taste has lots of smoke flavor and also a lot of caramel and fruity sweetness. Very smooth texture. Finishes with some burnt bitterness.

Sammy (8404) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Smooth smoked lager, very drinkable. SLight edge to the smoked malts. Sweetish smoke and also some lighter fluid. A bit of licorice, caramel and nuttiness. Pours brown with generous white head. Medium mouthfeel. Suitably carbonated. Good balance overall

750ml bottle. very deep brown with a medium, creamy tan head. very nice aroma with just enough smoke without being overpowering over chocolate scents from the malt. flavor has mostly tootsie roll, fudgy, chocolate malt with a hint of smoke. i could use a little more smoke in the flavor to cut the sweet chocolatey malts. medium bodied.

jonas (5595) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a golden head. Light smoky and honeyish nose. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel, which makes the body feel a tad too light. Roast and smoke flavours on a nutty base. Burned sugar on the tongue afterwards.

Bottle. Pours black with tiny tan head. Good carbonation. Nose is BBQ, hops and smoke. Taste is BBQ bacon, hops and smoke. More hoppy than most smoked beers.
