Half litre bottle poured into pint glass. One and a half finger tanned head which went quickly. Dark mahogany colour, clear at the edges, cloudy in the middle. Very distinct smell, was like being in a room full of smoked ham. Strong malty smoked taste. Not too much,going on apart from smoke. Was surprised by the high amount of carbonation.

Poured from bottle into DFH snifter. Pours a dark brown but transparent color- billowing white head on top, nice retention. Smell- peaty campfire, sweet malts. Nothing overpowering here. Taste- sweet smokiness, maybe a hint of cherry or sweet fruit on the front of the palate. On the end, some roasty bitterness. This is a well balanced, nice beer. I am not generally a fan of rauchbier, but this one is really nice.
