Lightly smoked aroma. Very dark brown, hazy, beige head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, smoked, some sourness, chocolate.
16.9 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger fizzy beige head that left a good deal of lacing. The nose was moderately smoky at first, but the more it warmed the more the smoke came to the fore. There’s a really nice authentic "campfire" like quality to the smoke character that I really crave from Smoked beers that this exhibits. Some nice sweet maltiness, and a touch of hops. The flavor is nicely smoky, intense enough to please even this Smokehead. It almost has the intensity of a Schlenkerla, but also has a fairly aggressive hoppiness that truely makes it unique. Medium bodied and very drinkable (so long as you like Rauchbiers) with moderate soft fizzy carbonation. The slightly high ABV is rather well hidded. I liked this one alot, one of the best Smoked beers outside of the Schlenkerla line-up. Gfei (17) - Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Smoky and roasty aroma. Flavor is sweet with smoke and roasted malt. Moderate carbonation with a slick mouthfeel. Very nice smoked beer. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/19/2011 Source:BrewEngineer) Apple like smoke over creosote and dark fruit notes with a faint sourness. Slightly cloudy dark amber brown with small fluffy tan head. Smoky flavor with lots of roasty character. Light bitter stringency. Light to medium body and mouth feel. Finish is dry with some nice warming. Tasty. gunnfryd (15097) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2011

Bottle 0,5ltr: Dark brown coloured brew with an great moked taste, just Norway meets Germany’s Bamberg. Very drinkable Rauchbier indeed, only this one is from Norway. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Malzröstiger, rauchiger aber auch fruchtiger Geruch nach Waldbeereen mit holzigen Einschlägen. Stark schinkenrauchiger Start. Mitte fruchtig beerig, süßlich-rauchig. Abgang dunkelmalzig-süß, rauchig, leicht alkoholisch. Ausdrucksvolles und sehr schönes Bier. Dervock (1404) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle - Black pour with tan head. Smoke (obviously) but also a fair amount of sweet malt and a hint of ham hocks. Very sweet up front with only a hint of the smoke, then a smokey caramel malt taste and a smokey finish. Rich smmooth palate lovely.

from Erzbierschof - quite clear very dark beer with a poor head retention; fairly smokey aroma with notes of fire, tobacco and cold ashes; a good malt body; very tasty and pretty juicy; some earthy bitterness and a long smokey bitterness with notes of black cherries and licorice - quite original and very pleasant
