Bottle from Legacy Liquor, VancouverOakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Beautiful dark amber to mahogany color, clear, with generous compact head. Delicate but persistent aroma of smoke, peat, wood, acidulated milk, roasted nuts. The mouthfeel is off-dry but quite smooth; the caramel flavor is delicate, layered with peat and some schinken, some milk cream, a bit nutty too; rather low bitterness, and weak final.
Pleasant Rauchbier, but timid.
Light brown, hint of smoke in the nose, bit of the whiskey, caramel malts. Fairly smoky, some husky malts with a toasty, caramelly character. Maybe even a hint of chocolate. Good beer, nothing stands out. mcberko (17205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of light smoke and dry bready malts. Flavour is much smokies than the nose suggests, drowning out whatever else is there - maybe some bready caramel malt. Dry smoky finish with low sweetness. Decent. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to Canadians. Pours clear brown. White head. Nose/taste of oak, smoked, touch of peat whiskey, black pepper, brown sugar and light bacon smoke. Medium body. Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle - Toffee, chocolate and no smoke I can sense. Clear maroon, with a brown head. Little bacon and smoke, lots of caramel and toffee, chocolate and a long finish. Well rounded and mellow, but not as smokey as I would like.

Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Amber gold, very pleasant balance between grains, sweet barrel, and campfire smoke. Extremely drinkable, full flavoured, with no single component dominating. A tame rauch, tame barrel, but just really enjoyable, exceeding my expectations. reebtogi (6240) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is smoky with some peat and vanilla. Taste is malty sweet with some hop bitterness finishing with some smoke and peppery notes. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A pretty nice smoked ale that I recommend for others to try.

Beautiful creamy white head atop a deep mahogany coloured body. Nose of smoke, jerky. Somewhat cola flavoured and him but a solid ash background with some BBQ pork lingering. Pretty nice. 650ml bottle purchased at Cascadia Liquor (Quadra). GRM (4019) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2015

650ml brown bottle. Reddish brown por, quite a large beige cap, very creamy and sticky foam. Aroma has a bit of chocolate malt and some smoke and wood hints. Taste has wood, smoke, roast. Finishes with some smoke and roast. Overall, a nicely done brew. Alcohol stays in check, smoke notes are nice, but could be stronger. Worth checking out.
