Clear brown with reddish hue, foam light brown. Nose is mainly malt, with some smoke. Taste is somewhat sweet, malty, smoked and some bitterness. Atertaste is moderately bitter, smoke lingers as well. A fuller version of the Lager.
Bottle at work thanks to Johannes. Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Big meaty smoke aromas. Smoky taste, light caramel behind. Nice. Mister_Li (1342) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2017

European Beer Swap Tasting #2 szynka i karmel w aromacie. W smaku wyraźnie wędzone w mięsną, szynkową stronę. Nieco karmelu. Pijalne. Porządna rzecz. MikeBeermaster (829) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Aroma of dry smoked ham with hints of maltiness, bit of molasses. Dark mahone in the glass with minimal beige head. Flavor of smoked ham, some notes of herbal hoppiness. Beer is well balanced, however - watery. Poor. biir (1318) - Berlin, - APR 18, 2017
Tap at the brewery - dark mahagoni color, clear, white head. taste is bacon, smoke, molasses, dark wood, dark malts. Heavy body, but refreshing and crisp. Quite sweet, but very well balanced!

Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of smoke, raw sugar, raisins and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great stuff, delicious.

Pours hazy copper with nice off white-light tan head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Stong smoked nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is smoky, malty sweet. Good.
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours clear brown with a thin foam. Aroma is a warm fire, some smoke, and quite some bacon too. Body is medium, with a little but crisp carbonation. Umami, oily, thick. Nice. FatPhil (15967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut and ultimately his secret santa SinH4!martjoobolut (4230) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
Really sausagey smokey aroma, some herbs in that sausage, sage. Lightish palate, a little smooth from sweetness, pleasant carbonation. Sweetish smoky taste, no harshness, no medinal aspects. Lightish malts, needs a bit more beer, but the smokiness is lovely. Really nice rauch, smokiness pretty much perfect in its mellowness. Finish sausagey but a bit brief. Slips down easily, and is refreshing.
Bottle, bb 05.01.17 (thanks santa SinH4!). Pours copper. Aroma is nice bacony smoke, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, smoke, bacon, grains, malt. Overall: very good. Bit thin maybe, so fresher sample could be even better
