Pours a dark amber with a huge, tan head. Aromas of charcoal, sausage, and a bit bready. The smoked malts are the flavor, leaving behind a long, charcoal and BBQ sauce finish. Medium bodied beer with a sticky mouthfeel. This beer is highly recommended for a beautiful autumn day by the grill.

Bottle From bierlinie in Berlin. Pours maple syrup colored. Smells of Bacon From the black forest. Taste is spicy and smokey. Really smokey in the aftertaste. Full body. Hard to place, but fine beer to enjoy

W aromacie wędzonka mięsna, trochę wędzonego sera. W smaku przyjemna wędzonka ze słodkim tłem, alkohol idealnie zamaskowany. Genialne piwo.

500mL bottle. Pours a dark brownish amber with medium white head. Smoky aroma of charcoal, bacon, and roasted malts. Taste is much the same. Smooth finish. Low carbonation. Full mouthfeel. Fantastic beer.

Aroma dominated by smokiness reminding smoked cheese, smoked meat etc. In taste it’s fairly smoky with same traits as described in aroma, with malty, bready backbone. On palate it’s fairly light bodied with low carbonation. Amber, pure colour with lightly colored solid head with nice lacing.

The scent hit me before I even crossed the river. Smoke poured from the other side of the banks, a dark ruby colour bathing the landscape. My senses were overwhelmed, dominated by roasted, toasted malt. I was not prepared. Even as I walked away, the overwhelming power of the beer came with me. My soul was roasted, there is no turning back.

Aromat szynki :) Do tego lekki chleb razowy, odrobina karmelu - po prostu świetnie się zapowiada. W smaku podobnie, jest bardzo czysto - słód, lekki karmel, mocna, słonawa wędzonka. W finiszu lekkie zioło od chmielu. Przepyszna wędzonka.

Pours a pretty thick brownish head and has a very dark amber appearance, a little bit clear. Even before pouring into glass, smokey aromas were quite obvious, kinda like that woodburnt smell. In actuality, it totally overpowers any other aroma I might get. Has good lacing. Mouthfeel slightly watery. Flavours right off the bat also has that smokeyness to it. Something like burnt roasted dark malts. Actually not offensive. Kind of reminds me of St Peters whisky beer, but better tasting. There’s hints of honey, even bacon, but pretty faint. Such an odd beer aroma/flavour wise but it’s pretty darn good.
