3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Toffee, chocolate and no smoke I can sense. Clear maroon, with a brown head. Little bacon and smoke, lots of caramel and toffee, chocolate and a long finish. Well rounded and mellow, but not as smokey as I would like.

Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Amber gold, very pleasant balance between grains, sweet barrel, and campfire smoke. Extremely drinkable, full flavoured, with no single component dominating. A tame rauch, tame barrel, but just really enjoyable, exceeding my expectations.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown, hint of smoke in the nose, bit of the whiskey, caramel malts. Fairly smoky, some husky malts with a toasty, caramelly character. Maybe even a hint of chocolate. Good beer, nothing stands out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Beautiful dark amber to mahogany color, clear, with generous compact head. Delicate but persistent aroma of smoke, peat, wood, acidulated milk, roasted nuts. The mouthfeel is off-dry but quite smooth; the caramel flavor is delicate, layered with peat and some schinken, some milk cream, a bit nutty too; rather low bitterness, and weak final.
Pleasant Rauchbier, but timid.

Pour a clear reddish brown with a light brown fluffy head that leaves good lacing up the glass. Aroma of campfire, wood, peat, light chocolate and bread. Taste is peaty, woody, brown sugar, light vanilla and pepper. Finishes nice and dry with a medium low carbonation... Overall a great Rauch that’s well balanced.
