3.9/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into goblet
Vintage cellar $ 5.95/bottle
Lovely aroma of smoke
Head nonexistent
Lacing poor
Body dark amber, clear
Flavor very malty and smokey, no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl
Medium palate, slightly oily, carbonation soft

Lack of head/poor lacing detracts from the appearance, but served closer to 50 degrees the head is quite nice. Another good rauch from Bamberg.

Served in short glasses, at a tasting. Very nice appearance. Not a beer I would drink every day, but very unique! The smokiness was overpowering at times (leave subtleness out in this one!), and agreed from previous comments that this is best had ice cold. I would buy again for a group tasting to get a variety of opinions. Glad to have tried this one.
