a: served in a cylinder glass, Fastenbier is a deep, purely clear maple syrup brown in color, with a low bone-white head
s: aromas of fantastic pure hardwood smoke, heavily aromatic without any "meaty" notes, backed by a supportive malt spine that provides some toasted sugar and dark fruit while staying mostly out of the way
m: carbonation around low-moderate, body medium
t: genuine hardwood smoke, strong but sinking into a balanced state with a body of lightly toasty malts, some dark fruit sugars - but hardly sweet with plenty of cleaner lager malts present to thin things out, leather, totally drying with a very mild, grassy hop flavor
o: maybe there were some external factors, but this one didn't really stand out in relation to other Aecht rauchbiers I've had - a superb example just the same, but not more special than any other from the brewery
draft at ChurchKey, DC
Serving type: on-tap
