Half pint from Urban TapHouse in Cardiff (not necessarily best source). Pours a very dark brown with a thin sandy off-White head. Aroma is very grainy and smokey, low to none hop aroma. Slightly muddy aroma. Taste is smokey caramel. It’s like charcoal and crystal malts. Not an awful lot of rye coming through but a moderately spicy rye note underpinning the smoke. Smooth and drinkable but distinctly average. andrepintado (3659) - Porto, PORTUGAL - JUN 24, 2015

Pretty good. I don’t know what rye tastes like. It works though as a general all purpose style of session beer. cgarvieuk (25984) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2015

On keg at the Bow Bar.
Appearance - chestnut with some orange chinks. Nice head.
Nose - brown bread, light smoke. A hint of dried fruit.
Taste - big dried fruit cake thing. Lovely smoky backdrop.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - reminds me of Schlenkerla Fastenbier. Delicious. Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Dark red brown pour with a big bubbly off white head. Caramel, raisin, rye, spice, lemon zest. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Sweet and spicy. Nice mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2015
Digging this one. Mellow. Smooth. Surprisingly syrupy. Malty goodness -- recommended! Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Bomber. Clear darker amber brown, lasting firm creamy tan foam. Promising aroma of smoky caramel with a whiff of spicy rye. Taste is somewhat bland, toasted sweet caramel malts, some mild rye, flat cola finish. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Disappointing. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
