Emelisse – Rauchbier

A dark-red smoky substance, this is a take on the classic German Rauch-beer. Lots of smoky notes (obviously): smoked eel, but without the eel. Bitter-sweet on the palate, and quite dry, with a hoppy finish. An interesting glass. Clean and chiseled, well balanced, and lighter than expected. A good take on a style of beer I don’t really like.
