NielsenRatings (8278) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Tap @ brewery in Bamberg. Hazy dark orange/brown appearance with a cream colored head. Honey baked ham, somewhat spicy, caramel, mild meaty smoky aroma that’s just fantastic. Rich caramel malty, lightly nutty, toasty, pork smoky, light vanilla flavor. A real treat.

Small glass at Fermentoren, poured from a wood barrel. Golden-brown body, firm off-white head, dotted spots around the sides of the glassware. Mild smoked sausage to the nose. Mild smoked malts in flavour, semi-sweet. Malt bitter endnotes. Medium to thin bodied. Easy to drink (Copenhagen, 10.05.2012).

gunnar (4875) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2012
On tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen.Pours clear golden/amber with a small white head. Aroma is light roasted with a tiny smoked note. Taste is moderate roasted, caramel with that nice touch of smoke, shy and not too dominating, very good one.

Christian (10782) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Bayrischer anstich, at Fermentoren. Clear amber with a big and creamy white head. Meaty smoke aroma with biscuit and bready malt. Sweetish malty flavour with mild smoke character. Low carbonation which may have hurt the flavour profile a little. 3.7

Re-rate, on tap at the brewery: Malty with both dark bread and mild, complex smoke, rich flavour with a touch of dried fruit.

Very good Rauchbier, not as smokey as Schlenkerla, but still with a lot of character!

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - APR 24, 2012
21/11 0.5 l bottle, thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured clear copper body with smaller head. Very nice smoked aroma, cheese at first, then ham, peat etc. A bit of caramel changes its concept, but typical Bamberg cheese, ham and peat are very well present in flavor. Not too smoked though, for where it came from. Fuller in body, inclining to "medium" category. Finish was longer and held quite an interesting herbal note. An easy rauch to drink, expected heavier stuff here, but it’s surely a very good beer.

suprchunk (1956) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2012
Dark toffee colored pour. Big peaky off-white head that slowly falls. Some lacing left behind. Malty, smoky, and a hint of roast. Sweet, smoky flavor of malt and bacon. Not as strong as the last one I had, but still very delicious.
