lesifflebiere (1887) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Blonde légèrement cuivrée avec une mousse blanche qui s’attarde à la surface ; les malts fumés sont bien présents mais retenus en nez, et on croit aussi reconnaître du raisin et des pommes. En bouche, le fumé n’est pas trop agressif, laissant la part belle aux sucres. Amertume finale très discrète, mais appréciable. Une bière fumée assez simple, qui remplit bien son rôle mais qui paraît bien timide, en comparaison avec la plupart des produits de DDC. Néanmoins, elle demeure agréable, une bonne addition à leur registre déjà bien fourni. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Very well done. Not sure I’ve had a smoked beer I like so much. Malty with light barbecue flavour. Some caramelized malt - nice to see a smoke beer that didn’t burn it off completely. Light sweet finish, soft carbonation. Tap at brewpub. Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Nice hazy amber body with an average off-white foamy/creamy head. Robust smoked malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and herbal hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries smokey and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bitter/smokey finish. Interesting and well done. hivemind (915) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Draft at Blind Tiger on 11/28/2012 for their VSK night with James, Streets, Paul, some others. Thanks for saving some for me, guys. Nose is pure BBQ smoke. Light orange-amber-apricot color, which I thought was strange for a "smoked" beer. Thin-bodied, kind of a sweet aftertaste. Greasy, actually. Jow (3925) - New York, USA - DEC 6, 2012
This Rauchbier is lovely. On tap at Blind Tiger pours brown beige head and a smoky nose. tastes of just the right amount of bacon, also with earth, leather, resin, toast, floral, herbal, and nutty. quite pleasant

Blind Tiger, NY tap 12oz ($9.50): Pous a brownish color with off-white. Aroma is beef jerky, bacon, smoke, smoked malts, wood, and more bacon. Yeah, I know that rauchbier invites hyperbole, but what can you do? The taste is huge smoky meat, with rather light malt backbone. The thing is that this is almost a light beer, but with just loads of flavor as the body is rather thin. I kind of wish that it had maybe a little bit more maltiness and/or alcohol to compliment the huge roastiness, but I’ll take what I can get, and this was excellent. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Draft at blind tiger with Andy, Paul, and Tom. Pours a super deep hazy amber body with no head, no lacing. Aroma is light smoked meats and very faint burnt rubber. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of meat, smoked malts, pepper, and light plastic. Good smoked. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #8 of festival. Pours a murky orange-copper with lots of little bubbles and a small lasting bubbly off-white head. Big smoky aroma with lots of smoking, burning wood along with notes of meat and blood that I often get in good Rauchbiers and finally some roasted malt. Very smoky flavour, also malty and fruity along with light hops -- lots of smoke but it’s still easy to drink. Medium bodied. A solid Smoked beer and right on style, just like I like them. robinvboyer (4670) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
