AleRider78 (248) - - JUN 2, 2015
On tap at Ottawa Brewpub. Pours a thin layer of frothy beige head and has a dark amber coppery appearance. Ok lacing. Smokey aromas are immediately noticeable as well as roasted malts. Flavours are also roasted malts, some notes of toffee. Smokiness comes through more in the finish than up front. Good retention. Medium bodied mouthfeel.

The smoky flavour of this beer is first noticeable in it’s scent. It has a very crispy, baconesk flavour, however not the best rauchbeir I have tried

Great seasonal beer. Can be found on tap at select locations or the Mill St Brewpub. You cannot buy in bottles, but you can get the 1.89L growlers from the Mill St Brewery store (which works out better in some cases!).

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Growler. Amber- brown pour. The aroma is a bit salty and kind of odd. Moderate smoke but also some faint sulphur and odd astringency. A little bit of toasted malt and a very flinty but insistent bitterness. Meh - an odd sort of celery salt character as well. Oddly fruity as it warms up. This ain’t no rauch.

rejtable (1857) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Tap from Brew Pub in Toronto. This one’s not doing much for me. Very light smoke, some peat like in an Islay scotch, but not that present overall. Some roasty malt. Getting some metal as well.
