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!

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.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma of smoked meats, charred malts. Flavor is quite smoky initially with a smoky, meaty finish. There is a nice sweet malt backbone to complement the smoky notes. A classic smoked, very tasty! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Bottle. Aroma woodsy-smoky with lots of chocolate as well. Flavor also adds complex caramel and toffee notes. Really nice.

Floback (526) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours a fingernail of tan head that reduces quickly to a pool of froth over a dark brown body. The aroma is rich with smokey chocolate, soy sauce, and coffee beans. Flavors are similar with a hint of piney hops and dark fruits in the finish. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. The palate is smooth going down. This is a good example of this style.

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Sampled at the Richmond 14th Gathering. Delightfully smokey and roasty. Like a smoked stout? Very good actually, but more ’stout’ and less ’smoke’. Wish it was more smoke heavy. Sampled again at the river. again wished it were smokier. Beautiful dark brown pour with red highlights. very sweet molasses notes.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
750mL corked bottle poured almost black with a light beige head and good lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with some chocolate and smoke. Taste is malty sweet with some mild smokiness and some bitterness in the finish. Very palateable beer with a fine balance and not overdone with the smoke. Nice carbonation. Robust body.

Atheist_Peace (967) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Now this was one old bottle and the aging had great effects. Pours dark brown with a toffee head. Lots of smoke and dark fruit with a bit of grain, some chocolate notes and a nice little woodiness. All of the same elements come out on the palate. Surprisingly great considering the bottle was at least 3 years old and only 5%ABV.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
In short: A smoky chocolate lager with a rich creamy body. Unusual and very good.
How: Bottle 750ml, first batch, consumed fresh one month after its release
The look: Dark mahogany body topped by a medium tan head
In long: Nose is moderately smoky nose but not in a Shlenkerla-smoky fashion. This is more like a burnt cake/bakery smoke. Taste is pleasantly chocolaty, black chocolate without the bitterness. Light fruity touch of prunes and figs. Not very smoky in the mouth with only a light smoke presence. Really full chewy body, like a melted chocolate cake. Appropriate relaxed carbonation. Another superb S.S. from Les Trois Mousquetaires. With the S.S. Rauchbier, S.S. Alt Secrète and S.S. Oktoberfest Blonde I haven’t seen so many effective S.S. since the heydays of Heinrich Himmler.

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.
