3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml flip-top bottle in Germany. Beautiful mahogany/red color under full beige head. Smoked wood, and meat aroma. Quite a different taste even for a Smoked Beer, taste like burnt wood and good beer, taste changes as it warms and gets better like smoked meat. After a time there are other flavors coming up. More complex than most Rauchbiere, less strong than the Bamberger ones. Nice medium bodied, good quality. Very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a 1 inch light tanned head. Strong smoked malt aroma. Taste is more moderate smoked, still here but subdued.More fruity malty and some peaty whisky notes as well, but the sweetness from the malt dont make this an extreme smoked beer. Rather good this one.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is very meaty smoke and is very strong. You can smell the beer from several feet away. The flavor is more of the same, with a ton of smoke and some caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Maybe not quite as good as some of the Aecht Schlenkerla rauchbiers, but a very nice smoky beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl swingtop bottle: Complex leathery smoke aroma, definitely pronounced on the whiskey malt. Light metallic and medicinal notes; black pepper, dirt and resin (different to the hoppy kind) with caramel and honey underneath. Pours ruby red with a completely disappearing head. The flavour shows hints of burnt wood with a light sweetness, minerally and salty. A lingering peaty and smokey aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit light and watery; too much carbonation for my liking. Interesting flavours to irritate the tastebuds a little - disappointing on the palate.
