The smokey nose was the first thing I noticed until I took my first sip. The smoke permiated the beer, and yet it was nicely balanced with a hint of sweetness at the start and a nice hopped bitterness in the end. I thought this was a very good example of a rauchbier. I think I have also found a new beer to make my BBQ sauce with. I enjoyed this beer and will more than likely drink it again.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark red-brown with a beige head. The aroma is very smoky, bacon, ash, strongly roasted coffee. Medium body with a soft carbonation, a light sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is malty, caramel, smoked grain, honey, hints of apples and again with a lot of smoke and bacon.

oczek2015 (389) - Przemysl, POLAND - APR 24, 2017
Butelka 0,5 z datą ważności do 05.2017. BARWA: jasno brunatne, klarowne. PIANA: obfita, kremowa, jasno beżowa, trwała, ładny lacing.AROMAT: bardzo przyjemna bukowa wędzonka przypominająca wędzoną szynkę, bekon, momentami nawet nuty kojarzą ce się z oscypekiem z grilla. Naprawdę przyjemny ,stonowany i trwały aromat. SMAK: podobnie jak w aromacie ale delikatnej, można wyczuć słodowość pod palonością i delikatnie popiołowym finiszem. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, gładkie, średnio pełne, pijalne.

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.

Un ottima birra, aroma di malti tostati e affumicato, al palato rispetta benissimo l’aroma con una facilità di bevuta ottima. Consigliatissima.
