La birra si presenta con schiuma beige con una breve persistenza. All'esame visivo risulta di colore marrone, velato. All'esame olfattivo il suo aroma è abbastanza intenso e si percepisce in modo netto l'aroma dell'affumicato. All'esame gustativo il corpo risulta esile e si percepisce una certa sapidità e un gusto amaro, bruciato che rimane in bocca per un lungo periodo. Nel complesso questa birra risulta armonica è abbastanza piacevole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh my God! Amazing smoked aroma. It is like there is a steak in the bottle. Black color with beige head. Leaves smoked bacon aftertaste. Very good to excellent beer.

Pours dark brown body with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and grain, smells like roasted bacon. Tastes also like bacon and roasted malts. Soft bitter smoked finish. Medium body and a smooth texture. Average carbonation and a long aftertaste. Great beer for a great breakfast.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 Przepiękna wędzonka, aromaty wędzonego bekonu/szynki, takie przygaszone ognisko. W smaku dym, fajna nienachalna tekstura, nie męczy a wręcz zachęca. Doskonały przykład rauchbiera.

Bottle. Verging on black with a dirty brown head. Aromas of smoky bacon, forest floor, earth, mushroom, wood and smoke. Flavours of smoked small goods , molasses sweetness through the mid palate and roasty espresso bitterness to finish. Wonderful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

overtheline (105) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2016
500ml bottle pours a deep brown with tan head. Smoked bacon/ham on the nose with lovely deep woodsmoke. Has a really meaty smokiness to taste. Really good flavour. Full, almost oily, mouthfeel and a mild bitterness on the finish. Tasty stuff.

0,5l Flasche. Das Bier ist dunkelbraun, beiger flacher Schaum. Geruch nach kaltem Rauch. Geschmack Rauch, keine Süsse. Etwas metallisch im Abgang. Mir fehlt bei dem Bier was.
