This beer poured a medium brown color with auburn red highlights. Head is on the small side but I do see a decent amount of bubbles rising to the top. The aroma reminds me a of big breakfast with sausage, eggs, bacon, and toast. Awesome! The taste has less of a smokiness than the aroma. The initial flavor is of a nonsweet malt like barley but there is a sweetness behind the initial malt base akin to a chocolate/caramel mixture. I notice a oak like flavor in the base of this beer. The finish is more smoky and it lingers. The balance of smokiness to sweetness is very good. I could see this pairing amazingly with any smoked meat. Much more balanced and tastier than I remember the marzen being.

THE quintessential rauchbier!! Mild smoke in the nose with a nice malty character. Starts off with a nice toffee flavor that is quickly usurped by the smokiness... And man is it smoky. Mild hops bitterness on the finish... Barely noticeable through the smoke. Very nice!
