Poured into stange; dark brown, showing dark ruby in the light.
Smells like sweet smoke and not much else. Hint of sweet malt.
Taste is smokey mixed evenly with lighter sweet malt.

Overall I think I prefer the urbock but this is tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with two fingers of beige head.

Smell - camp fire smoke, roasted malts, smoked meat, hint of dark fruit, light earthy hop.

Taste - Starts with the roasted malts then goes into a nice balance of smoke, hint of dark fruit, and light earthy hops.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall - A well executed Rauchbier with a smoke profile followed by a supporting roasted malt backbone. Would definitely recommend to give this one a go if you are a fan of the style.

4.05/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear very dark brownish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a moderate amount of cola brown and garnet highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of thick film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of smoked malts, specifically a smoke that is similar to what I would expect when smoking sausages or bacon.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of roasted and caramel malts with a moderate to strong flavor of smoked malts. Light notes of leather and just a hint of iodine flavors from the smoking of the malts. Light bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very smooth.

O: Very interesting smoke aromas and flavors in this beer without being overwhelming. Very enjoyable, especially for someone that enjoys smoke and pretty easy to drink. Pairs well with smoked sausages.
