Exactly. Smoky, meaty, not sessionable. I seldom have more than one (though standing in Schlenkerla's ox-blood painted beer hall I mighta had three)Nick JD said:Nick JD, on 11 Apr 2013 - 15:56, said:
It wasn't "foul" at all.
It was SMOKEY. And MEATY. Just not sessionable. Then again, I'm not sure that's the purpose of a rauch.
Make a great accompaniment to a lot of meals ... thought you'd be ordering a nice ale or a clean lager when you were finished dinner.
A rauch would be an interesting thing to brew for me and I'd like to do one one day because of these wonderful Bamberg rauch memories. Dunno if I'd want it taking up a Keg as I reckon I might not get through 19L in a year, but certainly something I want to do one day.
Edit: pretty sure there's a recipe in Classic Styles. I reckon I'd start with that, maybe do a 5l batch and bottle it into stubbies and compare against Schlenkerla's Marzen.
