On tap at Schlafly Taproom. Pours a copper color with white head. Smoky, malty, firewood flavors. Pretty good rauchbier. vyvvy (6516) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours clear golden/amber with a small white head. The aroma has peat smoke (not meaty), smooth caramel, bready malt, some cereal and a hint of spice. It has a medium/light body that is a bit rough with carbonation, but still has a smooth slickness to it. The flavor starts with the peat smoke, but it has a lot of sweet bready malt that offsets it nicely. The finish shows a bit of spicy hops and has a nice balance of malt, smoke and hops. This is one of the cleanest tasting smoked beers I’ve had.
