Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a dark cola brown color with a bubbly head. Very smokey meat like aroma. I?m very much alright with the heavy smokey beers, but this one is potentially over the top. Anything about the flavor is completely overpowered by the smoke. Swallowed a charred campfire log smoke. Though I can?t complain, this beer advertises to be this way. Definitely a sipper as a result. This falls under the "gotta try them all eventually" category.

Bottle @ Gambrinus, Tartu. Smoked aroma, some roasted malt notes. Drinking it is like eating a sausage. Good.

nihtila (1159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Amber brown beer with light brown head. Aroma of smoke, tar, thats it. Luckilty it doesnt taste that much but still tar and smoke dominate. Also pretty malty, some roasted malts. Soft. Sausage or bacon. Ok but still smoke beer which is not my favourite style.

Dark brown, clear beer with a heavy smoky aroma. It’s taste is malty with a light hoppy bitterness. The smoke dominates the aroma. Light brown and long lasting head. Light bitter flavor with a long smoky finish. Texture and mouthful is OK and not too watery.

MarkoNm (1028) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a very dark ruby color, almost brown, topped with a decent tan colored head. Aroma is very smokey, bacon-like quality, also slightly woody. Taste has some sweetness in it, but mostly it’s smokey. The fans of smoked beers will love it, for others it will be drinkable enough.

CarlosChamu (14) - Oaxaca, MEXICO - MAR 6, 2015
De color marrón rojizo medio con destellos de color naranja brillante y espuma de cabeza compacta, firme y duradera. De aroma a salchicha ahumada y tocino un poco de moho y ligero aroma a frutas. Su sabor nos brinda un excelente equilibrio de malta dulce y el humo. El humo sustituye al factor del lúpulo como el equilibrio de malta dominante. Ligero retrogusto cárnico.

bottles, 0,5lt. Found at Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos. It’s just THE smoked beer. An overall winner. Aroma of smoke and bacon and a dark appearance. The taste just complete the aroma of... smoked bacon, A very nice full body that could be a meal too. But, it goes extraordinary with some saussages or heavy pork, wild etc And you can drink more than one, but not more than four, I guess.
