Appearance - black, Aroma - bacon-esque smokiness. Taste - ashtray. Palate - didn’t pay too much attention as I was too preoccupied with finding it disgusting. Overall - the bacon-esque smokiness promise something interesting, but it turns out to just be ashtray. I really, really disliked it, and the only reason I’m semi-glad that I tasted it is so I know now how your archetypical rauchbier tastes and that I should pass them on.

Sircatis (231) - FRANCE - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Achetée au E-Center en Allemagne. Bière très foncée. Un nez de salée et fumé comme du lard. Ça sent aussi le grillé. En bouche le grillé ressort plus. Goût très complexe. Bière étonnante. Une première pour moi. Mais plutôt agréable à déguster.
