A: Dark amber/brown clear beer, with a big tan head. Lacing is good and head retention is very nice.

S: Aromas are what I expected from having other Rauchbiers -- smoke and wood smells dominate. A campfire in a bottle!

T: I get some initial malty sweetness, followed by an explosion of smokiness. The taste reminds me of eating smoked meats. Other flavors are of earthy hops.

M: Meaty in body, with average carbonation. The finish is a mix of sweet malts and smoked flavors.

O: A real gem among Rauchbiers!

Poured a great deep reddish brown into a Pint glass, half finger white head and nice lace. Aroma showed the smoked hops right away with a somewhat malted background, taste was malty sweetness followed by a flow of smokey rich bitterness with each sip. Mouthfeel is medium/light and makes for an easy drink, the smokey waves mellow as it warms and some hops begin to show through with a slight bitterness. Overall this is a very solid beer and one that I'm very glad I picked up!
