Rated 2004-02-04. Dark brown, big beige head which lowers slowly, moderate lace. Very smoky, ham-like, malty, tar and wooden aroma. Pretty full-bodied. Malty and smoky, slightly ham-like, sweet flavor with notes of tar and wood. Long and smoky finish. Very nice smoked beer, especially aroma is nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost opaque dark brown color with a copper hue and faint activity. Light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with average legs.
Aromas of bacon and smoked salmon on wood. Flavors of smoky meat, tobacco, roasted coffee, caramel, and herbal spices. Feels like bread mixed with wood and bacon. Well balanced between sweetness and bitterness.
Full body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish of medium length, ending with a spicy smoky meaty beef jerky feel, still with a nice balance from the sweet and sour.
Overall this is my first of this style and not really a fan. Incredible experience to try, yes, but is it a beer that I enjoy or would I drink it again, no. Still perfectly drinkable to the last drop with complex and interesting flavors. The smoky meaty bacon taste is overwhelming the other flavors. The body is flat and missing some freshness. Sure I’m a bacon lover but not in my beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Marrom clara, cristalina. Espuma bege fina, de curta duração. Aroma muito intenso de defumado, com notas de melado, ameixa, caramelo, e madeira, que se estendem ao sabor. Esse começa adocicado, vai a salgado e termina amargo. Pouco alcoólica e de pouco corpo.

I really disliked this. It smelled like smoked ham/turkey, tasted like a bad sandwich.
