Majek (697) - Ząbki, POLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Clear, amber colour, fluffy medium head diminishing quite fast. Very intensive aroma with lots of smoked malts (similiar to the smoked meat). Taste is medium sweet, minimal bitter with medium duration smoky finish. High carbonation (it could be softer). Medium body. Solid rauchbier.

mutz (896) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2016
Halve literfles gekocht in Berlijn. Helder amber, kraag blijft niet lang. Ruikt rokerig, beetje likeurig maar niet heel sterk, de smaak is ook rokerig, moutig en een dunne lichtzure afdronk. Weinig koolzuur, weinig spannend.

Neulen (9) - Nürnberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016 does not count
The ghost of the hangover vanished in the morning. A whole day of exploration through Bamberg, and it was still not over. The next day started with the smoky scent of the rauchbier, strong but not overwhelming. I could make out the rising carbonation in behind the deep colour. Smoke everywhere, taste, smell, palate, all smokey breakfast. I expected a rude awakening, but this was the opposite.

mgajdaczewa (1613) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 4, 2016
W aromacie silna szynkowa wędzonka, ognisko, popiół, mokry karton trochę też. W smaku wędzonka już nie taka silna, zbudowana na karmelowo - tostowej podbudowie, nieco za dużo popiołowości jest w tym piwie, podbitej przez mokry karton. Nie przekonało.

tricksta_p (3324) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is strong smoked malt, bacon, smoked ham, breadish. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium. A bit thinnish, but very easily drinkable with a big aroma and flavour of smoked malt.

darioklc (676) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAY 20, 2016
Dobiven na dar iz Njemačke. Kao i svaki rauchbier ima aromu i okus dimljenog mesa. Izrazito je izražena u ovoj pivi. Za nas koji nemamo previše doticaja sa ovakvim tipom piva treba se prvo naviknuti na ovo. Izvrsno je.

Ambro206 (358) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
Un fantico esempio di birra della Franconia. Al naso colpiscono subito le note affumicate di speck e fumo di legna verde. In bocca l’aroma si sviluppa con un deciso e lungo retrolfatto di crosta di pane ed un pizzico di arancia sanguinella. Nel bicchiere si presenta di colo oro antico con un fantastica meringa di schiuma bianca. L’equilibrio č fenomenale per tutta la bevuta pur rimanendo sempre tendente verso il dolce. In bocca il corpo č esile, la carbonatazione vivace e la birra scivola in bocca con una estrema piacevolezza.
