Medium, short lasting light brown head. Dark red-brown colour. Powerful aroma of smoked ham, bacon etc., also malt. Flavor likewise but less powerful, nice balance and good mouthfeel. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber colored and a moderate head. Smoky aroma, smelled like meat, beef. The flavor was smoky with a mildly sweet maltiness, a touch of bakers chocolate, and it seemed oily. Finished dryish and slightly bitter. The upfront smoky nature put me off at first, but it is quite good when you get used to it.

Pours a clear brown with a thick off-white head. Beautiful aroma of smoked German sausage. Initial taste is also like very smokey german sausage but after a few sips the flavour doesn't seem as strong. Definately one of those beers that you can only drink 1 a day. An interesting beer that would probably be poured down the drain by your typical macro beer drinker.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This beer pours a brown color with minimal head and lacing. The aroma is the weirdest that I've noticed - smells like honey hickory smoke barbecue sauce - wonderful aroma. The taste wasn't very good though. It tasted just like it smelled, but for some reason the taste wasn't good at all. Can't say much more, but the taste was terrible.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very, very dark brown and ruby. Pale and large bubbly, nice lacing. Beautiful aroma of smoke, bratwurst, tar and burnt wood. Taste of smoked sausage and tar-pastilles in malty body. Long smokey finish. Delicate beer but one bootle per eve is just enough.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge head, dense and irregular. Beautiful sausage aroma, gentle and so enjoyable. Good head retention with deep amber color. Fun to sip, to get that chewy smokiness that makes you want to eat it or dinner. (gravity pour at GBBF 2003)

My first thought when I tried this beer was of smoked cheese.Love lts dark appearance and the lingering smokey taste that hits your mouth like an exploding cannon ball.Very dark for a Marzen and a beer that you either love or hate athough I personally think its really weird to hate it! Give it a try.

This is really a strange beer: it's not the first smoked beer I've drunk, but I'v never found a beer that has a so strong smoked aroma and taste. The flavour is a little bit salty and spicy and reminded me smokd ham. Really particular, but good, very good!

Dark brown and a big lacing dark head. Lots of smoke in aroma. Taste with salt and a hint of sour feets. Try it!
