From draft in Bamberg. Dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is malty with smooth smoke. Flavor is bready with nice non-overpowering smoke. Medium body with average carbonation. Nice woody smoky finish.

MMJL (304) - Gliwice, POLAND - NOV 26, 2015
W barwie bardzo ciemne jak na marzena - miedziane; z niską ale drobna kremową pianą. W aromacie bardzo intensywna wędzonka w typie szynkowym, ogniskowym, drzewnym. W smaku dominuje mocna dymność, ale są też i nuty słodowe, może ciut karmelowe. Goryczka dosyć wyraźnie zaznaczona - chmielowa ale w połączeniu z wędzonką sprawiająca nieco palone czy wręcz popiołowe wrażenie. Dosyć mocno wysycone

Tasted from bottle pours a dark ruby with beige head. Aroma is campfire and cured meats. Taste is smoke, caramel, bacon, earthy flavors. Very well done smoked beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Goût très spécial salé de bacon fumé, très bonne bière dans sa catégorie mais une suffit sinon écoeurante

Helder bruin. Licht crèmekleurige kraag. Geur rook en spek. Smaak rook, spek, hout, kampvuur. Lekker en vrij subtiel.

16.9 oz brown bottle poured into proper glassware. Appearance: Dark body, tan head with a good lace. Aroma is smoky sweet The flavor is meaty & compliments the smell. Mouthfeel is light on the palate. Overall this is a great beer that pairs well with barbecued/cured meats, or cheese such as gouda.

0.5L bottle, smoke, smoke, cured meat and smoke. OMG I loved it. Aroma of smoke and caramel, taste smoke, bacon, some sweetness. Medium body and great beer in general. I suppose the beer style which you like or hate. I like it, no I adore it!

Sample from a 50cl bottle (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. You love it, or you hate it. But let’s try to rate this one objectively. This bottle pours a dark, clear brew. The colour is reddish, dark brown, black. The foam is nearly non existing. The nose gives a hint of the smoked beer: Roasted malts, bacon, meat. The taste is correspondingly smoked. The carbonation is soft, the beef taste is heavy. I could also notice some wood features, corn, salami. A very strong aroma and a Rauchbier archetype! Therefor, I rate this as a smoked brew - although I really don’t like the style.

Bottle. Dark ruby/brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of heavily smoked malts, bacon, wax and black pepper. Flavour of raisin, Dr Pepper and smoked meat. Thin to medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Lots of smoke. Paired well with my brother’s homemade beef biltong.

kran w jabeerwocky. ciemne z bardzo ladna piana. aromaty.. no coz, ewidentnie schlenkerniana wedzonka gra wiekszosc rol, glowna i drugoplanowa... ale w tej wedzonce faktycznie jest cos niesamowitego, w sensie - jest fajna :) w odroznieniu od wielu innych :) moze to placebo i kwestia marki? nie wiem, ale dziala. a poza tym? w tle pojawiaja sie jakies lekkie, kawowe a moze nawet czekoladowe klimaty? smak, poza wedzonka oczywiscie, to slodycz i lekka kwaskowatosc. bardzo fajna, gladka faktura. bardzo dobre.
