Served at a veggie beer dinner at Local Option, paired with brie-stuffed gnocchi, in a smoked tomato butter sauce, with roasted fennel & onion.
Sampled about 12 oz. of this creative brew. It had a thin skim of foam on it when it arrived, but the head retention was poor. The surface had a slightly viscous look to it when swirled. The color was a saturated golden amber.
Intense smoky aroma of cured pork, proscuitto, smoked ham, even bacon. The intensity is greater than Schlenkerla Helles, but not quite to Urbock/Weizen levels. A very nice smokiness, later on it lessens in concentration allowing some bready malt and rye aroma to show through.
Flavors follow the nose, it has a bready, spicy character from the rye malt, and plenty of smoke flavor too. The finish is fairly dry and woody, but the body is a little flaccid without much supporting carbonation. It was a nice pairing with the course, and was mostly sipped at for about 20 minutes or so.
This is a Rauchbier, and meant to be intensely smoky. The authors of low reviews here don't seem to be aware that this is a legitimate beer style.

A: Darker gold in color and nice white head that shows medium retention.
S: Big time rye in the front of this. Smokey aroma later on, pretty nice.
T: Rye up front with some smokiness up front. There is a underlying sweetness to this but only in the front half. Very much reminiscent of a ham on rye.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Tastes were smokey and left everywhere from the palate and long into the aftertaste. Nice dry rye to it.
O: A nice change of pace, not something I would crave however.
