A- Fantastic head on top of this black beauty. One of the darkest colored heads I've seen, deep dark nearly chocolate brown. It's a little lighter on top than the edges. Milkshake like consistency, thick, froathy, and creamy. Settles to a rather large cap, sparse lacing.

S- This one has alot of campfire smoke upon first whiffs. if you keep your nose in this long enough you can detect a generous amount of chocolate malt. I detect a small trace of sweetness but its really hard to get past the char!

T- Dark chocolate is quickly washed away with flavors of roasted malt. Light coffee bitterness near the finish is overwhelmed with smoke and the two linger on the palate with mild tobacco. More balanced than the nose, and quite enjoyable.

M- Mouthfeel is very good as well. Slightly above medium weight, carbonation is somewhere around the same.

O- Kind of dissapointed I didn't have this with some BBQ, but it was great on its own, I thought they did a nice job incorporating the smoke in this.

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of alcohol, hint of smoke, and hint of floral notes. This is more the style of Smoked beer than an oatmeal stout, though it doesn't fit easily into either category. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of smoke, slight hops, and slight alcohol. Overall, good body, blend, and aroma, but the smoke is almost an afterthought.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

A real nice thick brown walnut body out of the bottle, but fills the glass with very dark black colors. Head is creamy thick and cocoa brown, thick coating of ring lacing all around and thin creamy colllar to match. Real nice lovely looking stout.

Great aroma and as advertised. Subtle campfire smoke, nice wood like embers. Subtle coffee and char roasting aromas. Certainly some cobbed smokey hints of bacon to match.

Palate is large amd wonderfuly controlled smoke. Hints of earth hop and large smoked malt without plastic burnt character. Coffee angle is a little lost as smoked and rauch accents dominate. Nice carbon char with smoke that hints slightly toward tobacco and balances nicely. Some milk coffee comes out as the beer warms up and the smoke subsides a bit with a lingering presence. Missing a bit of chewy and creamy oat character.

Truly a beer described and tastes as labelled. Missing only a bit of creamy palate feel to match. Otherwise a blast to drink.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, very light coffee with light chocolate and smokiness. Flavor of smoked, toasted dark malt, brewed coffee, light campfire smoke that has some peaty mineral character. Finishes with light grassy hops and boiled down coffee with a light residual smokiness. Medium bodied. An interesting coffee stout with a somewhat lighter malt and body than expected from an oatmeal stout. The malt complement does not quite support the smoke and coffee flavors, although they are not that intense. I enjoyed this, but was left wishing for a more intense malty stout body to play off the additional flavors. A well made coffee stout that doesn't really stand out from the pack.

Very dark brown color, almost black with tan head. It's clear even if it's not so transparent.
At the nose there is a lot of coffee and chocolate, but also some molasses, an hint of bacon and a little of brackish. It's very particular.
Full bodied, very smooth in the beginning but with a good bitterness that brings balance to the beer. Long lasting taste. Very good beer.

Bottle from Tipples, labeled as Rauch Geek. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that goes on forever. Aroma is lots of smokey wood, candied bacon, chocolate, lots of earthy coffee, glorious. Flavor is chocolate and coffee up front with a nice bitter-sweet balance. earthy coffee really comes out as my palate gets used to the smoke. A rich oatmeal sweetness, lots of roasty malts, then a big punch of smoke that lingers on the palate until forever. Just a flavor explosion of all kinds, but the smokiness complements the other flavors beautifully. Relatively rich mouthfeel with low medium carbonation, but plenty drinkable. Probably my favorite of the Beer Geeks I have tried.
