COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mit diesem Bier verbindet Georg Rittmayer seine beiden Vorlieben für einerseits die fränkische Tradition des Rauchbiers sowie andererseits schottische Single-Malt-Whiskys, die er am liebsten in ihrer rauchig-torfi gen Variante genießt. Selbst importiertes, über Torffeuer getrocknetes Malz aus den schottischen Highlands bildet die Grundlage für dieses individuelle, leicht dunkle Rauchbier. Bereits in der Nase zeigt sich deutlich der Unterschied zu herkömmlichen, fränkischen Rauchbieren, deren Malz über Buchenholzfeuer getrocknet wurde: Intensives Aroma nach Torf und Rauch lässt sofort Erinnerungen an schottische Islay-Whiskys, genossen vor einem prasselnden Torffeuer, aufkommen. Am Gaumen hingegen präsentiert sich ein harmonisch-ausgewogenes Geschmacksbild, das feine Süße von dunklem Malz mit den dezent eingebundenen, kernigen Rauch- und Torfnoten elegant verbindet. Das cremig-vollmundige Geschmacksbild erhält durch die individuellen, typisch schottischen Noten eine belebende Frische und stellt somit eine einzigartige Aromenkombination dar. 12°. 35 EBC.

on tap at the old favourite hutt’n. nutty shade of light brown with a thin but lasting head; they didn’t hold back on the whisky malt - loads of honey cured ham, old train carriages, thick socks; perhaps it was the ambience of hutt’n but some caraway came through in the aftertaste as well as heavity peated whisky, of course, sea breeze and some musty air conditioning. hopefully will inspire more franconian breweries to go a bit wild and crazy from time to time

Bottle. Clear whiskey amber with a short lived head. Smoked peat whiskey aroma and flavour, unusual.

Well this is certainly smoky in the Scottish sense. Tons of peat in the aroma and flavor (Islay Scotch), which unfortunately always reminds me of formaldehyde. I can’t get past this. If you dig on peaty scotch you may enjoy this. As for me, I’ll pass.

rauchbierlover (648) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2012
Dark orange body with a small white head. Whiskey aroma, so the taste. A bit watery. It gets worse and worse while you drink it. A bit disappointing

Bottle @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2012, Bratislava. Pours amber with a small creamy head. Peated smoke, caramel and grain. Heavy . . Not a fan.. Too much peat.

heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 31, 2012
21/07 GT at Richtar Jakub, 0.5 l bottle. It poured clear orange body with tiny white head. Whisky aroma, peat and ash, not alcoholic though. Nice peat flavor, slightly acidic, only some touch of caramel and cheese noted. Medium in body with long finish. Very simple, almost exclusively peat, which I did not adore, but still managed to be pretty nice.

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2012. Dark orange appearance with a light brown head. Rich peaty smoky, swampy, earthy, herbal, mild ashy aroma. Rich caramel, burnt, a bit spicy, peaty smoky flavor. Cool beer.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2012
Beige lace, clean brown body. Peat, big time, almost like a pleated whiskey. Bitter astringent taste and more peat. Really not my kind of thing.

Gurthnar (5865) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle, RBESG 2012 grand tasting. Amber to brown clear colour. Aroma very strong peat, you can almost feel the taste in your nose. Smoke, wood. Taste strong peat all the way, medium bitter. Very smooth, extremely drinkable, not harsh at all. One of my highlights of the evening.
