4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL at bir & fud, Rome. Deep murky brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma was slightly lacking, but texture and taste were outstanding. Nice body, a bit thinner than expected, but actually in a good way. I typically shy away from Rauchbiers, but the smoke was subdued and helped to round out the profile. Excellent recommendation from the waitstaff.

courtesy of fiulijn - pours a cloudy ruby-brown colour with a persistent beige foam; the aroma is fairly smokey showing notes of tobacco pretty well integrated within notes of prunes and melons; full-bodied and very sweet, juicy palate, no bitterness worth mentioning and a long aftertaste of red fruits, tobacco and cane sugar
