Syfher (204) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2016
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 (450) - 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

mduspara (25) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle 0,5 Pours clear, dark brown colour with a medium beige head. Smokey ( I love this word ) with the aromas of smoked meat, wood, caramelised malts and tobacco. Kinda reminds me of "Tabasco chiplotle ". Medium bodied and nicely balanced. On the palate it tastes like it smells. Almost like a barbecue with the Chipotle sauce. Nice smokey aftertaste with a light bitterness.

jsporrer (299) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle from HO1K. Pours a clear dark brown with a thin off white ring. Strong aroma of smoked ham. Clingy with oily lacing. Taste is thin and watery with the smoked ham flavor that lingers. Would have been better if more robust like a porter or stout. OK, but not something I would drink often.
