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!

Pours dark brown with a light brown head made of large bubbles. Aroma of smoke and malts. Sweet smokey flavor with a bit of sour flavor around the edges of the tongue. I have to admit that I generally don’t like smokey beers and this one is no different. A bit too sweet without enough other flavor to cut the sweetness.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
750 ml. 5% version. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, smoke and bacon. Really dark. Tastes what it smells, with some plums as well. Could manage to be more smoky, but still, very interesting result in the end.

Snoro (294) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2009
Généreuse mousse, un goût parfaitement et déliceusement fumé. L’odeur aussi est très bonne de ce parfum fumé. Douce, à peine un légé goût acre à la fin.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Dégusté avec viak dans un verre de fin du monde et acheté à la trappe à fromage de Gatineau. Apparence noir avec un très faible reflet brun avec ub petit dépôt et une mousse généreusse. Arômes de mélasse, un peu de cerise, brownies et fûmé à l’hicory. Goût de fûmé, de mélasse, d’hicory, de levure et d’olive noir. Un bon corp, huilleuse avec une bonne amertume. Wow! une bière superbe.

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
Poured a deep, appealing, brown hue with a thin beige head. Aroma is actually quite earthy with notes of cocoa and lightly charred wood. Taste is sensational; there are a multitude of flavors that seem to jump out all at once. Plenty of roasted character with tinges of chocolates, molasses, and an almost woody/peaty presence, all bound together by a velvety blanket of smokiness that coats the palate. Seems to finish a little dry but is nonetheless refreshing in an odd way. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and the intensity of the flavor remains throughout the drinking experience. This is one of my first Rauchbiers and I think I like the style.

My first rauchbier! Poured a dark, deep brown with a beautiful, light brown head. The aroma was much less mild than expected. Primarily it packed a bold malty punch, with dark wild berries being the most prominent. The flavor was where the smoke spoke out the loudest. A lovely strong smokey flavor dominated a long finish. I guess the palate was supposed to be light given its lower ABV. I was hoping for a little more smoke all around.

The aroma is mostly of smoke with not much else contributing. Taste is much more full and balanced, with lots of crisp malt and some bittering.

Smoke, roasted malts. Some fruit. Unimpressed off the start, but got significantly better as it warmed. My first rauchbier, not too bad.
