2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of Braudog. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasty and slightly smoky/ashy with soft coffee notes. Taste is roasted malt, ash, light yogurt and coffee. This tastes more like a milk stout to me. Slightly lactic throughout once it hits the tongue. Body is light-medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Slight tartness as well. Guess it’s possible this just didn’t hold up despite being in the fridge since I got it. Ends with more roasted malt, yogurt notes, light coffee and soft ashiness.

Bottle. Deep and black, with the visuals of a thick, creamy brew. This drinks with an ashy, smokiness, but still is predominately a sweet, malty brew at its base. I love the name and history behind this beer and give it extra points just for that. And to be fair, it delivers what’s promised ... a "light smoky aroma" balanced with a pilsner malt. Well done, if not assertive enough to land amonst the classical rauchbier styles. (#4725, 8/9/2012)
