Smoky meat flavour - quite enjoyable, if you’re into that. "Like BBQ in a glass," per the bartender. Decent amount of head. Not too thick.

0,5 l bottle. Pours out in a dark red brown, huge head. A lot of smoke and malt on the nose. Tastes the same. Thought it has more smoke so far as I remember from my younger beer days. Maybe I´m more experienced now. But to be honest, it has a lot of smoke and malt. Some bacon, some wood. Really nice one.

Aroma is full of smoke, tar, and dark malts. Taste is smoked ham, charcoal, minerals, and dark bread.

Real smoked beer. An explosion of bacon and smoke. Excellent to accompany a cigar.

From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Little aroma other than feint roasted malt. Reminded me of a light milk stout. Roasted chocolate malt. Nice ,light and tasty but a little sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Pours a clear deep brown with a thick beige head. Aroma: very meaty smoke, burnt wood/grass, bonfire. Taste: intense smoked meats, very woody like you’ve breathed in bonfire smoke, hard to describe precisely, some spice that reminds me of smoked sausage with hot paprika. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. An incredibly interesting style. The first proper Rauchbier I’ve had and while I loved the aroma I found it a little hard to drink due to the intensity of the smoke.

An excellent example of a rauchbeer. Aroma of smoking, prunes. The taste is very pleasant smoked, the same prunes and a bit of fruits ingredients.

50cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Donkerbruin met een beige schuimkraag. G: Gerookte ham, barbecue en wat leder. S: Zoet met een lichte bitterheid. Mooi gerookt maar ook niet overdreven. M: Doordrinker met stevige carbonatie.

Pours dark brown. Aroma is BBQ woodsmoke. Porky savoury goodness. Good level of smokiness in the mouth, rounded, smoked meat, a little bit of pepper, decent carbonation. Very good.
