Kirkas, tummanruskea ja hieman punertava olut vaahtoaa todella runsaasti. Pitkkestoinen vaahto jtt mys reilusti pilveilev pitsi. Tuoksu vahvan savuinen ja maltainen. Maussa savu korostuu entisestn hystettyn vahvalla palvikinkkuisella, leipisell ja maltaisella otteella. Melko tytelinen suutuntuma, kevyesti hiilihappoja.

Maris (1438) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2016
From a 500ml bottle on 4/7/2016. pours a deep brown with a small head. The nose is smoky campfire and bacon, as per the other rauchbiers these guys make. In the mouth, its rich, sweet and chocolatey, with some caramel, toffee and honey presenting as well. The smoke a touch more hidden than one might expect, but you still get some bacon, smoked meats and ash, along with a firm, sticky, roasty bitterness. The palate is thick and chewy, with the carbonation moderate. Big (I would have guessed higher than 6.5%), complex and delicious.

16.9 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a two inch light tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of smoke, roasted malts, caramel, wood and fruit. Similar aroma. Has a smooth, mostly full body. Not as aggressive with the smoke as the marzen, but is smoother and more rounded. Both are equally tasty and excellent.
