Pours clear golden/amber with a small white head. The aroma has peat smoke (not meaty), smooth caramel, bready malt, some cereal and a hint of spice. It has a medium/light body that is a bit rough with carbonation, but still has a smooth slickness to it. The flavor starts with the peat smoke, but it has a lot of sweet bready malt that offsets it nicely. The finish shows a bit of spicy hops and has a nice balance of malt, smoke and hops. This is one of the cleanest tasting smoked beers I’ve had.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Growler shared by a friend. Pours a crystal clear copper with an offwhite head. Nose is richly smoky, beechwood, light caramel sweetness noted and very clean. On tasting, light sweetness, bacon, smoke & a woody note. Low hoping. Clean, could use a bit more malt with less sweetness but a really nice classic rauch here.

On draft at Churchkey DC on innauguration night. Pours a clear light amber with an off white head. Aroma of an agricultural burn - but much subdued. Rather thin mouthfeel. Short indistinct finish.

On tap, it poured an amber color with a small white head. The aroma was very smokey, almost like bacon with some malty notes and woodsey aromas. The taste was smokey but very well balanced. The body was medium and the finish left behind a bacon flavor. Nicely done.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap room. Pours a light golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is nicely smokey, woody with notes of sweet doughiness and a bit of meaty character. Flavor is much the same, lots of the woody smokiness that sits over a sweet biscuit note finishing crisp and clean. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Excellent rauchbier

3-23-2014 Deep golden-orange color and almost zero head but nice lacing. Nose is very plain with not much strong smoke presence but does have an overall sweetness too it. Flavor starts out with a smooth cherry wood flavor, sweetness from the malt really balances the smooth smoke presence. Light fruity flavor with notes of apple and tart cherry. Body is modest with a light oily mouthfeel and low carbonation that accentuates this. Overall a well balanced but a bit on the sweet side. I love the beechwood smoke in this brew that lends a nice smooth smokiness.
