COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawazako - 7.5% ABV 100% smoked malt. Bamberg Style
ラオホビールとは、ドイツのバンベルクの伝統的なビールの種類です。モルトを燻製することにより、スモーキーフレーバーをビールにもたらします。  「ラオホ」は、ドイツの伝統的手法をそのままに、燻製モルトを100%使用しております。色は少し薄めのブラックで、ホップは多く入れていますので、苦め。アルコール度数が7.5%と少し高めです。長期熟成で味わい深く、じっくり堪能していただきたいビールです。  「ラオホ」は、ビール上級者向けですが、スモークチーズやスモークソーセージなど燻製食品との相性は抜群!「飲みにくいかも?・・・」がやみつきに変わる、1度はお試しいただきたいこだわりの一品です。

Note: Originally at 6.1%

Dark muddy brown color that isnt particularly attractive. The nose is modestly clean with smoked cheese and a touch of caramel. The mouth is very malty with prickly carbonation. The smokiness is subtle but firm and comes In waves. Very smooth and clean. Fuller body than I expected. Didnt have the wow factor I remember from years past but this is good stuff.

Thanks TimE for the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing moderately filtered dark brown and orange with sparse white foam that quickly dissipates. The nose shows lightly intense notes of smoke and bacon with light caramel malts around the edge. Nowhere near the intense level seen in the Aecht Sclerenka. The palate is medium bodied and light carbonated. Flavors of light smoke and bacon supported on a bed of light baked bready and lagery malts. Finish shows a soy sauce and smoky bitterness with a resurgence of bacon flavors on the linger.

Tap at CBM Koenji. Smoked ham and honey aromas dominate with a touch of strawberry jam in the background. Well-balanced on the palate. Nice lingering finish with some smoked caramel and fruit. Lovely!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
On tap at Craft Beer Bar Marciero in Osaka, JP. Flatter hazy red amber. Nose is sweeter cherry, no smoke I can detect. Taste is richer with nice smoked sweet pork, slick and oily mouthfeel, medium to higher body. Pretty nice.

shoulderbroken (3906) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2014
Tap at Server Land. Rich copper red colour, creamy off white head. Aroma is sausages and smoked cheese. Taste, smoke is prominent, meaty, light caramel, cheesy, honey! Decent maltiness. Really easy to drink and different flavours come out as you go down the glass. Great stuff.

Draft to flute Sake, plums, peach, and brown sugar, but not saccharin and subtle smokiness. Deep transparent red with a thin white ring. The plum is quite strong, some peppery smokiness though. Not quite a rauchbier in my opinion.
