WillemsUrenkel (1079) - Oldenburg, - NOV 10, 2013
0,5l bottle. Pours in a very dark amber. Long lasting steady head. Malty sweet and burned on the nose. Starts smoother, first like Schwarzbier, followed by smoked malt on the second stage with a nice sweetness. Light liquor taste. Easy to drink. Rauchbier for beginners. Like it!

Zlotta (579) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2015
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, best before November 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, smoky-malty aroma of smoked ham, campfire, caramel and some nuts. Sweetish, smoky-malty taste of campfire, caramel, some honey and nuts, followed by short, slightly bitter and faintly smoky finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Highly drinkable, not overly smoky but with a pleasant, smooth malt character. Would have liked even more smoke, but this is good nevertheless.

Saeglopur (1339) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 24, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by Gurthnar, thanks!
Brown body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of bacon, smoked wood, caramel, dark berries.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smokey, sweet, malty.

Nice one. A straight Rauchbier in the Bamberg tradition. Good balance between the smoke and the sweet malts. Drinks quite easy.

Bottle from my Secret Santa. Very nice smoked ham aroma, intense. Clear brown colour. Taste is nicely balanced, moderate caramelly sweetness balances the moderate to highly intense smoked flavours, smoked ham, slightly woody. Excellent. Thanks Santa!
