Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2011
500mL Bottle - Pours dark reddish-brown with a thick rocky light tan head. Aromas of smoke that are reminiscent of beef jerky and tobacco, wood, raisin, and malt. The smoke is very smooth on the palate and is in no way overpowering as it is slightly on the nose. Some mild chocolate come through leading to a balanced finish.

rayaron (781) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle 0.5l. Dark amber with big beige head. Very nice smoked aroma with notes of bacon, some minerals and lots of smokiness. Very smoked flavor, sweetish with notes of bacon and sausage, some spiciness and roastiness, sourish with lingering dry smoked finish. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Such a great smokiness.

haggis03a3 (166) - Orinda, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Billowy foam, dark with a reddish hue. Full-medium body. Creamy, sticky texture with fairly lively carbonation. Long dry finish. The aroma is smokey of course, kind of like bacon. It’s also sweet, a little woody, and toast-like. No hops. Flavor is a little sweet, some bitterness, slightly acidic, but balanced. The smoke isn’t overpowering, it’s a very balanced beer that reminds me of walking through the woods and smelling the smoke from a cabin’s fire.

Icedwarf (807) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2015
Zwart bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is romig, rookachtig en licht bitter met aparte, niet te definieren maar prettige bijsmaak. Gedronken van het vat in restaurant te Forchheim.
