2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Brown colour with minor brownish head. Aroma is made of wet burnt wood (or coal). Taste of burnt wood (alt. smoked fish). Extremely smoky. Some of my friends love this one, I didn’t like it that much, but it sure differs a lot from "normal" beers.

Great meat marinade. Over the top smoke and wood on the palate. not near enough balance for me personally but still well crafted.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 From A Bottle.Auburn in colour,medium head,aroma is of smoked bbq snorkers and malt,taste places me on
bonfire night with burnt wood and fireworks and that felt good.
I also found smoked meats and hops,very smooth with a bitter finish.Take me to Bamberg and let me session this from the cask,I hope I manage that one day.It just goes down so well and quick.This is ebeneezer goode.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Klar mørkebrun bryg, med mørkt fyldigt skum. Dufter af bål og røget bacon. Smager af røg, men ikke så intenst som andre røgøl. Ingenting i sammenligning med Refsvindinge Skibsøl til eksempel. Men dén kan også være lidt af en prøvelse. Denne øl er en fornøjelse! Der er masser sødme og fylde gemt under røgen.

Bottle. Deep brown colour. Upon opening bottle immediate whiff of smoke. Upon puring masses of smoky aromas, campfirs cured meats and smoky bacon crisps. Once your sense adjust to the smoke dark malty caramel aromas appear. Initially drinking it was almost unpleasant with the smokiness overpowering everything. As I adjusted the smoke faded away leaving a slightly sweet brew with a full body. Bizarre but after a few mouthfulls excellent. A beer to spend an evening over.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 Holy crap, this is one goooood friggin’ brew. A backyard bbq in a bottle. Liquid smoke in a glass. Oh, Lord, please deliver another to me! This is the second best beer I have ever had, hands down. I must have another! A perfect balance of smoke, hops, malt, smoke, hops, malt, and more smoke make this a MUST TRY!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Creamy and persistent foam, great adhesion. Color dark brown with red glares, much not veiled and bubbly; much elegant one. Incredible scent and wrapping. Aroma of filled with smoke meat, bacon, burnt wood and scamorza. Full bodied and intense taste. Strong bitter and of long persistence. Astonishing.

Tasted this on alongside the Rauchbier Urbock. The marzen was less intense but still an amazing beer. Brown with a nice lacy head. Of course, the nose and taste are smoke, but there is more.

Bottled. It’s smoked sausages. Never known an aroma like it, and I rather liked it. The smokiness carries through in the flavour but (thankfully) in a measured way, has a nice malty bite to it. Almost a cheesy palate and aftertaste. On it’s own it’’s good, must buy more to try with food where it coudl be amazing.
