A classic for the style. Aggressive smoke initially that seems tame only after it has pleasurably abused ones palate. Dirty and rustic in the best sense. Rodriguez (357) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 2, 2015
What a perfect rauchbier, smells and taste like heaven. Brown beer with medium carbonation, mild smokey aroma and flavor. It is a crispy malty caramel, lager. For those like me who loves real bbq, this is perfect, 100% in the style. panyeti (10) - Wrocław, - MAR 25, 2015
Coś wspaniałego. Intensywny smak wędzonki nie wpływa na pijalność - wchodzi lekko i przyjemnie. Co więcej - ani trochę się nie nudzi. BrunoSanchez (190) - Fermo, ITALY - JUL 12, 2015
Wowww! S P E T T A C O L A R E! Ho sempre bevuto la versione botiglia di questa birra ma adesso la mia recensione va x la spina. Scura con schiuma beige. Al naso note di fumo intense. In bocca corpo medio leggero molto ben bilanciata e beverina. Una birra di stagione leggera e dal sapore molto speciale affumicato "scamorza liquida". Molto consigliata agli amanti del genere Rauch SinH4 (5616) - Garching b. Mï¿½nchen, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Brown color with amber highlight and a nice tan head. Smoky bacon aroma, lightly toasted malts beneath. Taste is lightly smoky, more of the sweetish malts, nice balance with a herbal feeling. Texture is silky and the beer feels lighter than expected. A classic, which has become one of my beloved favourites over time. Bartlebier calls it a "masterpiece in character and simplicity", and I absolutely agree. Score went up from 3.6-3.7 (projected from my feeling when I first tried it, I did not rate back then) to 4.1 (second time, first time rating) and 4.4 (8-5-9-5-17) (most other times I?ve had it) so far. Can?t wait to have this from the wood at Schlenkerla, hopefully soon!
Wooden barrel in Munich at 500 years of Reinheitsgebot Fest. Less carbonation and even more harmony than the bottled version. Yup. This is a 5. Nothing more to say.
EDIT: A few more times from the wood at the source. I stand by my 5.

Unique flavour and taste by all means. A living legend. You must drink it before you die.
