Massive smoke nose. Clear and dark with white foam. Sweet malts start light, but then toasty notes as the smoke wells up on the palette. Smoke lingers long in the finish with a woody bitterness. A definite favorite for those who love smoke.

overtheline (103) - 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.

Bottle of 50cl, in a pint glass, from the fridge. Nothing more to say that the presentation didn’t : it’s a perfect smoked beer.

Estebanik (452) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bardzo drobna, bujna piana. Opada, znacząc szkło. W aromacie bardzo intensywna wędzonka. Smakuje jakbym wgryzał się w wiejską kiełbasę. Oprócz tego, lekka słodowa słodycz. Wraz z ogrzaniem wychodzi bardziej drewniana wędzonka. Klasyka gatunku

BBHansen (572) - Køge, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2016
bottle @ DØE Køge. Appearance: pours clear copper-red with powerful creamy beige head and lacing. aroma/taste: bread, light caramel, oak and smoke. palette strong malty and smoky aroma, average carbonation, medium body, medium to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by an average bitterness, medium duration and a watery texture. Overall: distinct smoke that overpowers the other aspect a bit.
