Samuel Adams "Bonfire Rauchbier"
Rauchbier (ABV 5.7%)

[Best served in a Dimpled mug]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear light to medium brown with a slight amber hue and had an average size (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that quickly dissipated and produced fair lacing.

The aroma was a nice mix of toasted grain malts, a light spruce hop and a cheesy yeast with a strong smoky note.

It tasted a little sweet and malty with a hint of caramel at first then became slightly bitter with a moderate smoky note at the end with the flavor lasting a decent amount of time after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was just a tad under medium in body and had a dry texture with a nice mild carbonation.

Overall it was kind of what I expected from a Rauchbier, a strong smoke characteristic which basically took over in the flavor department at the finish.
