On-tap at Churchkey in DC, poured into a pokal glass.
A- Pours a slightly hazy ruddy brown color with a finger of off-white head, nice retention and lacing.
S- The aroma is excellent, it has a really delicious smoked meat / bacon aroma, as well as smoky burnt beechwood and some light hops. For me the aroma is always the best part of rauchbiers, and this one does it very, very well.
T- Retains a lot of the great meatiness and smoke from the aroma, although slightly toned down. The malt really steps forward, with a bit of caramel and fruitiness and is accented by a light hoppiness.
M- Medium-bodied, smooth creamy feel.
O- A really nice rauchbier, the aroma is amazing, and as usual Schlenkerla has done an awesome job, although I think I slightly prefer both the regular Urbock and Marzen.
Serving type: on-tap
