tricksta_p (3936) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is strong smoked malt, bacon, smoked ham, breadish. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium. A bit thinnish, but very easily drinkable with a big aroma and flavour of smoked malt.

darioklc (729) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAY 20, 2016
Dobiven na dar iz Njemačke. Kao i svaki rauchbier ima aromu i okus dimljenog mesa. Izrazito je izraena u ovoj pivi. Za nas koji nemamo previe doticaja sa ovakvim tipom piva treba se prvo naviknuti na ovo. Izvrsno je.

Ambro206 (361) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
Un fantico esempio di birra della Franconia. Al naso colpiscono subito le note affumicate di speck e fumo di legna verde. In bocca laroma si sviluppa con un deciso e lungo retrolfatto di crosta di pane ed un pizzico di arancia sanguinella. Nel bicchiere si presenta di colo oro antico con un fantastica meringa di schiuma bianca. Lequilibrio fenomenale per tutta la bevuta pur rimanendo sempre tendente verso il dolce. In bocca il corpo esile, la carbonatazione vivace e la birra scivola in bocca con una estrema piacevolezza.

VsXsV (4042) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2016
Draught at Akkurat. Clear copper liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of smoke, charcuteries, bonfire, light floral hops and grain. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, smoke, bacon and light caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Hugely drinkable. Great stuff.

Garlic_of_Doom (633) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from Getrnkenfeinkost. I had this straight from the bottle so the appearance is set at a median 3. Aroma is smoky, woody and grassy. Taste is smoky, woody, light malty, spicy and peppery. Medium body, high soft carbonation, soft and smooth mouth feel, yet dry. Smoky, herbal bitter aftertaste with slight yeast notes.

Hands down one of the best smoked beers Ive had. Not as sweet as many can be.

SinH4 (3731) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Copper color with tan head. Aroma is smokey ham and light sweetness, good balance. Taste is light smoke, light sweetness, but the beer behind it comes through as well. Refreshing and rather light and well-balanced Rauchbier. Good! 7-4-6-4-15 = 3.6. At the brewery. The carbonation is a bit higher than expecte, but the aroma is delightful and the beer nicely balanced, not overtaking. 8-4-7-4-15

Lars_G (4) - - JAN 15, 2016 does not count
Colour is amber and clear. Foam is okay, disappears again fast but sticks to the side of the glass.. Aroma sweet and smokey with some wood. Not too heavy. Fizzy in mouth, primary in the front of the tongue, but the general mouth feel is good. Smokey notes and tobacco, but also caramel, sweet dried fruits like raisin, and a hint of toffee and vanilla. Recommended as and introduction to rauchbier :-)
