COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010.
Its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculierís fermentation process.

I tried this fine ale at a bar the other night. It was out of the bottle but still excellent. Its a very dark ale but not too strong. Very smooth, and a good choice if you like Bass.

A bit thin. And I hate raisins, as they are the work of the devil. My roomie in college (Balthazar) once brought some raisins into our room and I instantly chucked them out the window. Grapes should be made into wine or enjoyed fresh, not zombified. The fact this beer didnít get a 0.5 from me speaks highly of it.

Tastes like Pump House Burns Scotch Ale so it is right up there at the top of my list. Would Probably be out of this world on tap!

This is one of the best beers on tap Iíve ever had. Good luck finding it on tap though. Bottled is amazing too.

Burnt taste, fruity aroma. Very full tasting brew. I would like to try it on tap sometime.

rauchbier (3627) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2001
Malty nose with a suggestion of smoke, deep ruby red. complex flavours with a hint of sourness, but against a lovely soft palate. Extremely drinkable despite its high (by english standards) alcohol level.

Aroma: Reminded my tasting group of whiskey. Flavor is oakey, whiskey and somewhat brothy.
