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!

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2011
750mL bottle. Poured lower-viscosity deeper brown with a short-lived, fizzy tan head. The aroma picked up dark chocolates, a pinch of cherry, and molasses with mild accents of smoked malt (could’ve been cherrywood, which would’ve explained the cherry I found).. soft overall, and very welcoming. The flavor found black patent and chocolatey malts at the core, with lightly sour smoked malts laced throughout.. well-balanced, with few flaws, but it really wasn’t that interesting.. could’ve used a bit heavier malt bill and more smoke. Medium-bodied at the very most on the palate.. lower carbonation.. overall a fairly enjoyable brew.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2009
Big bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a dark brown with copper highlights, topped with a big bubbly beige head that laces its way down the glass. Nice meaty smoke aroma, cleaner than the Longrow from Brewdog that I had earlier, and with an underlying sweet burnt sugar maltiness. Flavours of strong smoke with underlying sweet molasses malt, slightly tart/sour finish. Tasty!

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2009
pours dark brown, off-white head. aroma is loaded with Bamberg style malts, hints of chocolate that seemed for upfront as the beer warmed up. flavor, light roast and smoke, hints of bitter chocolate and toffee. Contrary to the aroma, the chocolate was more present. Finish is similar, chocolate and light smoke. Well crafted and tasty.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle from a trip to Montreal back in April, so nearly a year on this one. Whoops. Pours a clear dark cola brown with a fairly sizable dense light mocha colored head. A little bit of metal, some slight fading smoke, a touch of jalapeno on some dark roast. Medium bodied, light apple and smoke, with a touch of chocolate. Finishes with a faint bitterness and a touch more smoke. As this warms a couple of the early flaws fade and it opens up. Definitely need one of these fresh.

marcus (6420) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
This dark brown beer poured with a generous tan head and a smoky aroma. There is a very smoky malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter, slightly sour finish. It tastes like a good German rauchbier, but the smoke is a bit more restrained.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 15, 2009
750ml courtesy of savvy1982. Pours dark brown with a nice, tan head. Smells of smoke, caramel, roasted malt, touches of chocolate. Tastes of smoke, pepper, spice, chocolate, caramel. Nice.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle, pours reddish dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke and some chocolate. Flavour of smoke initially, with roasted malt and subtle chocolate in the background. Finishes with smoky bitterness.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, husks), with light notes of smoke and charred wood. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Rather dull, with some rough edges (poor malt character, unpleasant twang and aftertaste).

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
750ml corked & caged bottle sample at Hart House beer festival July 29 2010. Near-opaque ruby pour with an average diminishing creamy light brown head (4-). Smells like woodsmoke, bacon, BBQ lighter fluid and caramel roasty goodness - not too smoky; nice. Taste follows, a tad more alcohol and smoke than in the aroma. Light body, weak carbonation, a bit astringent, finishes quickly and leaves a smoky linger - easy-drinking and pretty solid.
