500 ml. bottle, red - amber colour, with a small off white head with not much retention and a small ring of lace. Smell of smoked salmon domintaing it all in the beginning, with some notes of malts, caramel and toffee later. Light creamy body, taste of smoked salmon, but malts are more noticeable here: toffee, caramel. It will be great of course with a smoked salmon of some other smoked fish, but great too with sausages. Not for everyone’s palate (maybe even for mine), but a good beer indeed.

500 ml bottle. Very smoked smell of course, but not nice in my opinion. Dark coffe beer with a white head. Smoked taste and palate all over! Personaly i prefered the other one I tried from this company, this is just too much for me.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber brown with a big beige head. Lovely smoky aroma, with toasted grains and caramel notes. Taste of sweet malt, smoked bacon, caramel, some bitterness, a bit too sweet. Relatively low body, still very good beer, great food pairings.

Bottled sample at Beers 2015. Served slightly too warm. Body is brownish-orange. Strong smoked aroma and flavor. Mouth feel is creamy and full. carbonation is soft. Tastes pleasantly slightly sweet. Flavors of smoked fish (not fishy!), malt. Nice and very interesting. The smokiness is not overwhelming at all.
