Bottle shared at THT, thanks to Bierkoning for the bottle. Hazy brown with beige head. Lots of smoke and bacon, light malts, more smoke, soft herbs, light caramel, light minerals. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Just medium bodied. Not really my thing. thanatosti (1873) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg.
Clear brown with a white head. Smoky aroma with some bacon. Sweet savory, slightly metallic taste. Thin body. Solid gentle rauchbier. mike_77 (7370) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2017
Dark brown with thin head. Aroma is smokey and a bit meaty. Flavour is similar but with a background malt sweetness. Idiosynkrasie (8333) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, chestnut colour with small to average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Beefy, smoky aroma, notes of smoked ham, hints of smoked eel, beech wood ashes. Taste is dry, smoky, minimally peaty, grassy and bitter hoppy overtones, hints of smoked ham. Slightly anaemic, lacks a bit of caramel malt support for a better integration and exposition of the smoky notes. A nice one, though.

Drinking from a 33cl bottle.
In the aroma smoke malt, bacon.
The clear brown beer has a small off white head.
In the taste some sour, but the smoked bacon is topping that.
Medium carbonated. FatPhil (17515) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
330ml bottle - thanks Martjoobolut!martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
Very starchy aroma, wallpaper paste, but also a pleasant dry smokiness. Blandish sweet starchy malts too. Smooth sweet palate, OK carbonation. Finish is a bit smoky and sweet. Kinda rough rauch. Later it improves a bit, but the starch was big no-no.
