4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 500ml bottle. Pours a nice dark redish brown, almost identical to a dark ale. Medium head that clears up fairly quickly but leaves a centimeter or so of froth at the top of the glass, looks fairly heavily carbonated. Smells of smoked malts (obviously), and I’m actually reminded a little of sausages or ham around a campfire, very pleasant! Tastes strongly of the smoked malts, but there’s also some good hops in there too that gives it a good bitter finish. After taste is a blend of everything, hops, malts, and most noticeably the smokey aspects. Pretty enjoyable over-all, definitely worth paying for.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a nice light brown foamy head. Aroma of smoked indeed, reminds me of a well smoked ham. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour has a lot of smoke and some maltiness. Grüss Gott this is a great brew!

Rich brown color with thin head. Taste and smell reminded me of smoked gouda cheese and smoked meat. Taste is similar--very roasty but not at all like a dark stout. I’ve never had a beer remotely like this before. One complaint is the body is a little thin, but definitely a unique beer.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2010 Oh lord, huge head, smells like smoked salmon vs sausage , I cant even bring myself to describe the taste........ first taste: Like drinking a stein of charcoal with a burned tyre on top. Second taste; actually pleasant,smokey but not offensive, like a good salami, interesting, very interesting. Third taste; a nice beer. RERATE - some notes, just a delicious smoked beer, beautiful bacon notes, lovely peat and smoke with a tremendous long bacon salami finish. Great

This is a very dark orange-red-brown beer with a complex aroma. It is wood and smoke. Reminds me of a pirate ship. It has a smooth medium body with a clean finish. The flavor is smokey and resiny-- a solid taste that lingers lightly. A great smoke beer!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Caramel brown, small off white head. Caramel, wood smoke aroma, little meat and earth. Tangy smoke flavor, delicate malt. Smoke seems a little heavy-handed on it’s own, but with sausage it’s just the thing.
