look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slightly hazy brown-ish copper color with one finger of head that fades slowly with a nice curtain of lace.

Aroma: Lots of smoke that reminds me of apple wood smoked bacon. Really no other aroma can penetrate through the smoke.

Taste: Full bodied and creamy, with nice nutty malt sweetness before the smoked flavors take over. This really reminds me of drinking smoked/cured meat. A bit of hop bitterness towards the back end, before a slightly oily, lingering finish.

The Rest: Very tasty; an excellent rauchbier!
