Pours red w/ a thin white head. Aroma is very smoky & the taste follows suit. I haven’t had many of these but the smokiness certainly dominates this beer. Interesting but possibly a 1 trick pony.

Pours a clear amber with a thin lt tan head. Aroma has nice smokiness with faint malty sweetness. Flavor is fairly smoky...mild medicinal note from the smokiness...and earthy bitterrness creeps in. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is smoky/earthy...hickory note...and dry.

Rich gold color. Pure white head. Light smoky aroma. Flavor is light smoke, malt, and a little sweetness mixed in with a bitter finish. This is the mark for a smoked lager. Good luck hitting it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught) medium copper with wispy offwhite bubbles. Nose of campfire, apple wood, caramel malt. Taste of mild smoke, well integrated, mildly spicy like a pepper, honey and well balanced for a smoke beer. Well carbonated and nice sweet linger.

Victory does it again. the nice thing here is that while its a rauchbier, its not nearly as overpoweringly smoky as some that ive had. the only complaint that i have is that between the sip and the aftertaste there is an odd metallic/chemical aftertaste, but that might have been the lines at the bar i was at. otherwise, a great smoked beer.

Powerful smoke, bacon, salted ham, biscuit malts, too. A fairly clean beer, meaning the not overly caramel, molasses, or fruity flavors, just biscuit malts and smoked malt. I wish I had been in the mood for a smoked because it is a very nice rauch but since I wasn’t it made a full pint nearly impossible. Good brew though. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber pour with a white head. Smokey malts, hickory, smoked salmon, and campfire complete the nose, while a nice caramel biscuit coming in with the first sip. Fruity smokiness, and smoked meats follow. Very full bodied given the appearance, with low carbonation.

On tap at Georgetown Pizza Paradiso. Clear amber pour with a small frothy head. Nose of campfire, hickory, fruity, tree bark, and some salinity. Really good rauch characteristics, drinkable, and surprisingly full bodied. A yummy brew.
