500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a lovely clear brown colour with a thick creamy off-white head. Aroma: Smoke covers oretty well everything else. Caramel and dried fruit sweetness. Taste: Nutty, fruit sweetness, ham? Light hop bitterness at end. Like a rich smokey scotch. Pairs well with a smokey barbecued rib sauce.

A really nice, flavorful beer! Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Clear dark brown color with a nice white head and good lacing. Fruity, Smokey smell and taste. Roasted almonds, bananas, warm spice. Very enjoyable beer. Great for grilled meats!

Amazing smoked beer. Wow, the carbonation is low. Dark color. Smokey...smoked cheese...smoked summer sausage...wow...it’s like eating summer sausage and cheese without the food. It’s amazing. Very delicious. Pair well with smoked cheese and sausage

Poured a ruby hinted brown with a two finger tan head. Moderate sticky lacing was present. Aroma was a light smokey malt, not unlike sitting by a smoker with the meat on low and slow. Caramel and malt forward taste followed quickly by slight smokiness with just a hint of ham. Just a little bit of hops on the end. This has a medium-light body and carbonation with just a tad of oiliness. This is my first Rauchbier and it is definitely a unique type of brew. I agree with some of the others, the more I drank, the more I liked. Alas, I only have one bottle that my daughter brought to me in western PA from Raleigh. Not sure if I can get this anywhere around Pittsburgh.

Smoky and Sweet.

L: Pretty darn good, better than anything I've seen recently, off-white head, nice caramel brown color. Definitely hazy. (although, I'm no expert in this area)
S: Smoky camp-fire, but not too overpowering. Some said a bit like "smoked meat", I must say, I agree.
T: Initial hit of caramel sweetness, then the smoke. If anything tasting more like smoked ham than anything else, so maybe a bit of clove. I swear on the first or second taste, I had a bit of chocolate in there. I must say a bit bitter on the upper palate, and perhaps a bit grassy, but that's all I got.
F: Medium carbonation is the general theme here.

Personally don't think it's anything to write home about, but it's good. I'm about to enjoy it with some Salami de Cacao.

This is a pricy but very good beer if you like the taste of smoke then you will love this, it's like drinking smoke from a camp fire that leaves your mouth watering for more.

Ok.... you love thoe smoke beers or you hate them. Whatever, check it out! Initial taste is like cheap bacon. But then..... you can’t stop. They say something like that in their adverts. I must admit, it’s tru.
A really nice beer that sticks out of mainstream.
