3.98/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Pours a deep brown mahogany, with the reddish highlights visible under certain lighting conditions. Normal pour produces about two fingers worth of bubbly head that recedes slowly into a creamy film. Lacing is present, but does not stay on the sides of the glass.
S - Very nice volume. Not overpowering, but easy to pick up. Dominant smell is roasty coffee, subdued sweetness, and a hint of the smoke that the beer is named after.
T - I'm not a huge fan of stout-like beers, but this one was quite pleasant! Follows the nose, and that smokey sensation that was barely present in the nose provides a really nice backdrop for the dominant coffee flavor. The roastiness isn't overpowering, and the flavors are all very complimentary.
M - So good. I can't say enough about how well Jack's Abby nails the feel of its beers. Medium-full bodied with a rich, creamy sensation. A little bit of cushiness from carbonation that isn't really visible. Clean, refreshing finish.
O - I picked this up because it is from Jack's Abby, not because it is a Rauchbier, which is a new style to me. This is the sort of beer that makes me want to further explore a style. Recommend, also goes great with food!

3.85/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Smoke, ham, toasted cereal grains, doughy, earthy, toffee, and chocolate.
Taste: Same as above. Some bitterness in the rear too. Nice mellow flavors.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: Nice smokey black lager. I'll revisit this one again in the future.
