Ruby brown color with a big tan foamy head.
Little or no carbonation that I can see.
Smokey aroma dominates everything else here aroma wise. There is a sutle roasted malt aroma.
Very smokey with some roasted malt flavors.
The smoked malt doesn't overpower the beer but instead inhances the flavor.
Medium body beer with a dry finish.
The flavor also reminds me of smoked cheese if you ever had it.
A good drinkable beer but in limited amounts.
Drink well my friends.

500ml bottle poured into a lager glass.
A: Pours a dark chestnut color; much darker than I remember and much darker than your average marzen these days. Head retention is ungodly. A huge rocky beige head retains at a solid three fingers for as long as there is beer in the glass. Lacing sticks in stubborn clumps.
S: Campfire and jerky waft out of the glass. Hints of carob, chewy dark caramel, brown molasses, and brown bread. Very smoky.
T: Campfire, smoke, and jerky wrap around a core of nutty cocoa and carob. Burnt toast. Chewy brown caramel. Oily and herbal hop bitterness. Clean. Lingering campfire and woody smoke on the drying finish.
M: Medium-thick body. Weighty but very silky. It glides across the tongue. Moderately stiff carbonation. A very substantial and sustaining feel, as 'meal in a glass'.
O: Oh God, what an excellent beer. One of the more full and complex lagers out there. Glad to see that a few of the Bamberg breweries are still cranking out traditional smoked beers, and doing a world-class job of it. This is world-beating stuff. An absolute must-try for any serious beer aficionado.
