rayaron (839) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle 0.5l. Dark amber with big beige head. Very nice smoked aroma with notes of bacon, some minerals and lots of smokiness. Very smoked flavor, sweetish with notes of bacon and sausage, some spiciness and roastiness, sourish with lingering dry smoked finish. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Such a great smokiness.

haggis03a3 (174) - Orinda, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Billowy foam, dark with a reddish hue. Full-medium body. Creamy, sticky texture with fairly lively carbonation. Long dry finish. The aroma is smokey of course, kind of like bacon. It’s also sweet, a little woody, and toast-like. No hops. Flavor is a little sweet, some bitterness, slightly acidic, but balanced. The smoke isn’t overpowering, it’s a very balanced beer that reminds me of walking through the woods and smelling the smoke from a cabin’s fire.
