On tap. Dark brown body, with a rich very light brown head that stays until I finish my glass. Gorgeous. Not very smoky aroma at the start, but as the beer gets warmer, smokiness starts to dominate, very nice. Nice smoky flavor, can’t taste anything else, but it’s a smoked beer, right? Soft carbonation, creamy texture, heavy bodied. A very good rauchbier, maybe I had more expectations, but still, it’s a very good one.

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

M_Sack (553) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
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

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 (461) - 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

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.
