Had a pint of it tonight. Nice beer. I'm a hoor for smoked beer so I would definitely like more smoke. Bitter sweet finish which I think I'd prefer being less bitter. Tasty all the same.

I wasn't a fan of it, I'm afraid. Like O'Hara's Smoked Ale No. 1 and several of my own experiments with rauchmalz, you just end up with a kind of harsh kippery flavour on top of the caramel sweetness. I reckon rauchmalz really needs to be used as a base malt to do what it does properly. Peated malt works well as an addition to a mostly-unsmoked grain bill, in dark beers especially, but rauchmalz not so much, in my experience.

Hey,
interesting, is this available in any other bars in Dublin other than The Norseman?
