Bottled (from landbierparadies). Copper colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is mild toasted and smoked wood, some sweet malts, some toffee and mild earthy notes. Flavour is mild smoked wet wood with a nice wooden and resiny bitterness to it as well as some sweet malts. Balanced and tasty.

omhper (23899) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2009
Draught at the brewpub (as Dunkles Kellerbier). Served in stein with firm creamy head. Probably amberish coloured. Marked tarry smoke nose. Dry and medium bodied with clean rounded mouthfeel. Very direct smoke flavour, countered only by light caramel. Not as deep and soft as Schlenkerla, but with nore intense tarry smoke. One of the most distinguishable beers in the whole of Franconia.

Koelschtrinker (18025) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 2, 2011
Rauchig ser, leicht modriger Geruch. Im Antrunk ebenfalls rauchig, was aber das einzige Aroma ist. Es leidet aber unter einer deutlichen Wssrigkeit, die anfangs im Hintergrund und spter auch vordergrndig vorhanden ist. Im Mittelteil herber, das Rauch verliert weiter an Intensitt und ist nur noch sprlich vorhanden (dabei aber noch deutlich erkennbar). Wssrige Spuren findet im im Abgang, zudem trocken, leicht rstig. Nett, aber viel zu harmlos.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Ceramic mug. I just asked for a rauchbier and got one...same brew though. Nicely smokey aroma. Smooth, such balanced beech smoke, caramel malts. The most Heller-esque rauchbier Ive found elsewhere. Damn fine, balanced rauchbier.

MiP (15328) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Good smoke aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Good stable tan head. The flavour starts off with a little smoke, mild and clean. Medium malt body. Some roasted nut flavour. Slightly grainy finish, quite good though.

kevnic2008 (11443) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
Many thanks for this bottle to Beerhunter111. Dark chestnut color with thin tan head. Aroma has an initial blast of meaty smoke aroma, but as it warms, the smoke evens out.

pivnizub (10252) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle (purchased at the Brauerei): Clear, light amber coloured, slowly collapsing off-white lacy head; dry malty nose, but mainly smoked aromas like ham or charcoal detectable; solid sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; some caramalt, a tinge of vanilla and smoky flavours in the moderate bitter-sweet finish. Wow, a well quaffable, unexpected "smoky Dunkel".......
