Moravius (707) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2013
Flasche. - Assamteefarben, dichter heller Schaum. – In der Nase Torf, eher unangenehm. Auch der Antrunk ist von einer starken Torfnote dominiert, die vom verwendeten Whisky-Rauchmalz stammt. Es folgt eine nicht so recht zum Torf passende Karamellsüße und ganz leicht säuerliche Fruchtigkeit (Apfelsaft). Recht dünner Körper. Kaum Hopfenbittere; dafür auch im Nachtrunk noch der penetrante Torf. Da wollte man wohl die Kosten für das schottische Whiskymalz durch Sparsamkeit beim Hopfen wieder reinholen ... Und aus der leeren Flasche riecht es tatsächlich wie Pisse. Nicht mein Fall.

lusikka (6738) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a beautiful dark copper colour with an amber hue and a small head. Aroma is very strong with pungent wood, smoked ham, fern and peat. Flavour of smooth smoked malts, mild raisiny sweetness, grassy bitterness and smoked ham and tar. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Smooth malty, slightly sweet finish with subtle smoked notes. The smokiness nor the peatiness here isn’t too overwhelming and complements the beer rather nicely. On the otherhand, this beer is a bit too thin and flavour-wise a bit too smooth and not strong enough. Overall a nice smoked beer still.

rauchbier (3640) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. from The Dram Shop, Sheffield. Amber red, thin sortlived off white head and gentle condition. Intense woody, smokey nose with a slight phenolic/iodine edge but a low burnt toffee sweetness lurks, much more balanced in the mouth but still with a few rough edges, quite fruity and sweet with a dry smokiness that has a now muted phenol note. Finsh has some more toffee notes and a lingering but subdued peaty smokiness.

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle from Getränke Oase, Munich. Lovely campfire aroma, lovely glowing brown. Light palate, I would have liked a bit more body to baolance the smoky whisky character. But it’s nice.

kappldav123 (5307) - GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
Thanks to jonas for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass brownish, small head. Extrem smokey aroma. Starts the same, extreme smokey, also soapy-sharp. Finish milder, warming-malty. A bit too much.

jonas (5984) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. In your face woodsmoke and peatyness. Clear amber, low golden head. Very agressive smoke, like sucking on a ember - metallic, ashen, peaty, iodine, burned grass. I dig the extreme smoked notes, but I think the body needs a bit more substance and a we need a bit sweetness to balance the burned notes out. Nevertheless - a salute to the brewers for leaning out of the window and trying something extreme.

on tap at the old favourite hutt’n. nutty shade of light brown with a thin but lasting head; they didn’t hold back on the whisky malt - loads of honey cured ham, old train carriages, thick socks; perhaps it was the ambience of hutt’n but some caraway came through in the aftertaste as well as heavity peated whisky, of course, sea breeze and some musty air conditioning. hopefully will inspire more franconian breweries to go a bit wild and crazy from time to time
