poznan (88) - POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Barwa miedziana, niska, ale trwała drobnopęcherzykowa piana, klarowne. W aromacie kiełbasa, ładne wędzone nuty, nawet majaczy trochę czekolady. W smaku wodniste, kwaśne, płaskie. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka podobnie.

Piepenhenrich (1124) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
Smoked Bier (Rauchbier) is certainly not for everyone. Had this from the bottle, good quality, nice, intense but not overwhelming flavors of smoked ham.

4.1
lupuLust (331) - Franke(n) im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017
Several times fresh from tap (fränkischer Anstich/ wooden barrel) at Spezial Keller - Gentle touch of smoke, beechwood and ham. Also fresh wood notes (unsmoked) in taste and smoked ham. Finishes with nice fresh-from-the-yeast round edge. Slightly bitter and quite refreshing. Gärkeller aromas and low carbonation

3.4
tgrtnr (281) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
500 ml from tap at Spezial Brauerei in Bamberg. Clear amber colour, small head. A bit reserved smoke aroma, citrus fruits, roasted malt. Bitter smoky taste, no sweetness. A bit watery texture and light bodied, Soft carbonated, easy to drink and very palatable. Refreshing!

tmrmwel (2204) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2017

Medium body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is smoked malts, with bread, caramel, leather, wood and bonfire smoke.

3.3
JStax (7123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2017
7 year opf bottle shared at muckfest by mrmuck. The beer is a murky amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has paper, raisin, smoke, and grainy notes. More sweet than anything. The smoke comes through, but more as an afterthought. Medium body and medium carbonation. Not as bad as it could have been.

2.6
phaleslu (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Bottle shared by thebaldwizard. Thanks, Muck! 2007 vintage. Pours a clear amber with no head. This is oxidized to hell. Tons of cardboard. Smoke, peat, some residual sugars and sweetness. Light-bodied, with low carbonation. I need to rerate a fresh one.
