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!

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 Bottle, courtesy of Benzai during EuroSwap. Looots of smoked bacon, almost like next to a BBQ. Meaty and oily, very nice. Crisp carbonation, easening the greasy feel.

At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, murky very deep orange to brown color, aroma of smoked cheese with hints of charred wood and a hint of malt behind it, same traits in flavor with the charred wood stronger, light mellow bitterness. Nice and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
