Excellent beer. Has an amazing smoky flavor like it came out of a wood fire. Very rich and tasty. troopie (2534) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Draught. Restrained aroma, doesn’t smell as smokey as it is. Full bodied flavour, the smoke prevents the malt from getting too sweet, odd as that may seem. Malty finish. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2011
A cloudy brown/red. Sweet applewood smoke faint on the nose. Sweet with hints of sour and mustard savoriness. Milky in texture with a light but definite smokiness throughout. Very mellow, wonderfully drinkable and excellent with the smoke from the cigar the guy at our table is smoking. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Tap @ Fredfest... Poured clear amber with a tan head. Super smokey, campfire, peat, burning cigarettes. A touch of sweetness coming from the malt. stchloe (1138) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2010
I don’t know this was weird, but okay I guess. Billed as a Rauchbier tasted like rye with a sweet bitterness that also came through with the yeast. Really really smokey flavor, like bacon.

Light dull amber colour, pouring bright. The aroma is smokey (beech) but with only a light caramel malt note to back it up. Simple palate - I like it but that’s only because I’m a smoke whore. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2008
22oz from Liquid Solutions. Bottle says the ABV is 7.3, but it’s certainly well hidden either way. Deep, slightly cloudy garnet pour, with a crisp head. There’s not a ton of smoke in the aroma, though there are some pleasant malts. But it’s definitely there in the taste, with some campfire, slight sweet notes, a bit of pine, and some sharp licorice. Not a bad variation on a German rauch, with a PNW twist in the strong hop finish. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Hazy amber incolor with little head. Mild hickory aroma sits atop caramel sweetness. Crisp amber malt flavor is married with delicate smokiness. Some light hops balance the smokiness. This is a nice surprise and a real great beer. jcwattsrugger (12581) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2007
22oz bottle-pours a light tan head and hazy dark amber color. Aroma is dark/medium malt-molasses/some smoke, some dark fruit. Taste is dark/medium malt-molasses/some smoke, quickly transitions to some spice hops. Medium body. Good effervescence. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2007
A deep amber color with a tihck head. The beer had a smokey aroma and deep rich malts. The flavor was that of a good amber beer with smoked malts. The malts and flavors whee very deep and a good mild balance. This was a good over all beer to drink.
