This is brewed for Ma Che Siete Venuti in Rome, Italy. Their blackboard listed it at 9.8%, though anecdotally I've seen it listed online as 9.6%. I had it there on-draught in July 2011, where they served it into a half-pint glass. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were above average merely from the bar it was served in. Cost was 4 euro.
Not paired with food.
A: Pours a two finger head of lovely soft cream, great thickness, and great retention for the high ABV. Colour is a cloudy gold-copper.
Sm: Rauchbier influence is certainly evident here, with abundant smokey bacon notes and roast. A moderate strength aroma.
T: Baconey body with smoke and malted barley. Actually quite simple, which I didn't expect. It's built alright, but could use more of a roast foundation. Balanced. No alcohol comes through.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Of perfect thickness. Complements the taste decently. Wrong for the style though, which requires more dryness and coarseness. If it had more roasted barley in its base, this would be cured.
Dr: Four euro for 250ml is excessive, but it's a pretty good beer for what it is. Hides its high alcohol content well. It's easy to drink. Its biggest fault is its lack of complexity. It pales in comparison to other German rauchbiers (specifically Bamberg's offerings), but it's not bad.
Serving type: on-tap
