3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big smoky aroma, but not particularly meaty to me. More of a burnt wood and singed raisin aroma. Head died too quickly (from bottle). Nice amber color. I couldn’t decide on the palate on this one; seemed alternatively chewy and thin. My craziness. The flavor was heavily smoked, with slight bitterness, slight sweetness, and some fruit (raisin). Good, but not great.

Angenehm süßlich-rauchiger Antrunk, später milder werdend. Wenig herb, unspektakulär, mit der Zeit langweilig. Die Rauchigkeit kann dies nicht verhindern, da sie deutlich abflacht. /8/8/7//8

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2011 Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Sparkling, clear amber lager without much of a head to it. Peat smoke and applewood bacon are the olfactory components that rule supreme – lovely, extreme. Light to medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is sweet and smoky – toffee, honey, bacon and scorched peat. Smoky, moderately sweet finish. Big-time thanks to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconia lagers possible!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really quite smokey in the nose, a slight peaty quality comes through but also the typical bacon goodness that I love in these beers. Very warming without even taking a sip. Body is a bit on the light side for the style, which isn’t excellent for individual sips but makes the act of drinking a glass more reasonable. Smokiness dominates the beer, not a lot of other malt character, but still a pretty good Rauch (if not very complex).

@ Hutt’n. Whisky-malt beer from Oberfranken? Nice. Golden-copper colour. Brash, assertive phenols in the nose - Port Ellen stuff? Wow. Brash taste, too, with deep rich smoke, stacks of peat and hints of iodine. More please.

Warm red, lovely head. Whiskey aroma is upfront. Bandaid in a good, peaty way, echoes of Ardbeg. Soft palate. Very bandaid and in yo face woody smoke. Unique beer, which is great.

bottle thanks to bu11zeye. i think exiled almost drank the whole bottle before anyone even got to try any of this. that guy loves his smoked beers. poured copper with a white head. aroma reminded me of a dentist office. flavor was smoke, meat, and BBQ with a light body and low carbonation.
