3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark murky brown with minimal head, no lacing. Aroma obvious of smoke, caramel malt, and not a whole lot else. Flavor is complex, but just not my style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromat - bardzo intensywna wędzonka, karmel i melanoidyny.
Piana - beżowa, drobna, ale dość szybko opada.
W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie - wędzonka i karmel; dość słodko. Goryczka niska.

500 ml bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits for $5.49. Deep reddish brown and clear appearance with a tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, oak, light toasted grain and trace hops. Similar flavor, moderately smoky, woody, toasty, moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Somewhat complex once it opens up. Medium body with a nice, soft feel and smooth, creamy finish. Quite a nice beer overall.

Smell of smoke and bacon, pours a clear ruby red, with a thin tan head. There’s a touch of sweetness from the underlying malts, before the smoke comes in. Rich smoke flavor, with flavors reminiscent of a good barbecue. Moderate body, and a nice sipping beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle in Atlanta.
Clear dark brown body with a very good head.
Very smooth, near full feel with pepper carbonation.
Very smoky aroma and flavor but not quite to the level that would totally mask some dark bread notes.
Overall: excellent for style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Scrumptious. Poured from a pint bottle. Pours a deep dark brown/red, almost black with creamy off white head. Somehow a big, big nose comes through that head and hits you with charcoal, ash, bacon, bourbon and general smokey barbeque notes. Like a big plate of slow cooked American ribs. Rich toasted malts and nicely balanced by a subtle but not subdued hoppy backbone. Definitely booze notes cutting through as well.
Taste strong sweet, medium bitter and medium unami. Again very well balanced. Palate is medium to thick, a little viscous and creamy.
I’m not usually into old world beers, but this is incredible.
