BarleyandVine (56) - Stockbridge, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2013
A pleasantly malty sweetness that pours a ruby red color. This brew sports a rich smoke aroma and smokey flavor. A good special occasion brew.

McWorta (1558) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 2, 2016
Clear copper-mahagony brown with a pillowy light beige head. Aromas of smoke, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark red fruits, offers a mouthcoating light slickness, round medium body. Light sweet, delicately smokey and chocolatey with a light bitterness. Nicely balanced!

JtanK (359) - Krakw, POLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Aroma of wood smoke, malt and caramel. Pours dark reddish mahogany with large very stable beige head. In taste complex maltiness balanced by gentle wood and smoke flavors and mild herbal bitterness. Overall, more bock-focused as compared to the more smoky Schlenkerla Doppelbock. Medium-full body, drinkable.

Szopeen (373) - POLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Barwa ciemnobrązowa, wpadająca w rubin.Piana niezbyt obfita, ale ładnie zdobi szkło. Wędzonka jest bardzo wyczuwalna, w smaku chyba nawet bardziej niż w aromacie, są też nuty ciemnego chleba. Przyjemna pełnia, niskie wysycenie, goryczka średnio wysoka.

W aromacie przyjemna szynkowa wędzonka, do tego trochę chleba, ciemnych owocw, rodzynek i słodw, pachnie dość słodko. W smaku bez zaskoczenia, pierwsze skrzypce gra wędzonka ale nie jest ona przesadzona. Dość słodkie i pełne, wysycenie średnie.

mile (3859) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light - some caramel, smokiness and some bacon. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light - some caramel, some smokiness and bacon. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel, smokiness and some bacon, faint metal. Nice rauchbier with decent body - not overly too sweet.

Ritzn (676) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2016
Tap at the brewery. Dark brown with medium beige head. Aroma is caramel coated nuts, ham, dark fruits, smoke, oak. Taste is salty, umami, sweet dark phenolic fruits. Good heavy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sadly I really hate ham. So this was great on the one side but made me want to vomit on the other. Objectively speaking it is maybe great.

Moebbels (746) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2016
A very dark clear copper-colored beer with a little white foam on top. Nose has notes of beech smoke, smoked meat and some peat. Taste is sweet with a lingering, mild smoky finish. Soft carbonation and full palate but it is still easy to drink. Extremely well balanced and drinkable beer with good smoky aromas.

Frisch aus dem Holzfass in der Braugaststtte getrunken. Wie frischer Schwarzwlder Schinken aus dem Glas.
