New in the variety pack, let's give it a try. Pours out a dark, copperish color with a tan head. The smell is mighty smokey, with some faintly detectable spicey hops in the background. The taste is a very smokey, then slightly sweet, malty, with a slight dry aftertaste. I have to admit this is my first Rauchbier. This beer would go great at a an autumn campfire, or with some good hickory smoked BBQ brisket or pork sausage. The mouthfeel is adequate and full, slightly prickly and carbonated, but still smooth. Overall I like this beer as it is a nice change of pace but I could never imagine drinking very many of these. But I am glad they packaged a few for the variety pack.
