3.54/5 rDev -3.5%
22 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a mug
A - It is a dark rust color with amber highlights. I normal pour provided four inches of tan head.
S - It smells like a rauchbier. I get that wonderful aroma of smoked pork. I get some caramel malt as well.
T - It's got a pretty good smokey flavor to it. I get some sweet caramel malt in the middle, and it has a dry, bitter finish.
M - Medium with some prickly carbonation.
O - It has the makings of a great rauchbier. I loved the aroma, and the initial flavor was good. I didn't like the dry, bitter finish.

2.55/5 rDev -30.5%
A: Looks good. Brown and clean with a thin, off-white head.
S: The label isn't lying. Powerful smokey aroma with bacon showing up clearly. Smells more like breakfast than beer.
T: Smoke blasts the tastebuds hard. Didn't notice the bacon as much, but the combination of smoke and malt wound up tasting kinda like a band aide. Not something I enjoyed.
M: Moderately full, the smokiness made it seem fairly big. Good carbonation.
O: This definitely wasn't my bag. The chemical/band aide affect in the taste left a lot to be desired. Pleasent to smell, not so much to taste. Didn't finish the bottle.
