daknole (8557) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Brown pour, beige head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, herbal notes, bready notes. Flavor is smoke, odd herbal flavors dont meld all to well with the beer. Messy. Meh.

Poobah (248) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Amber pour with a thick head that dissipated to a thin covering. Sweet nose. Malty intro with a malty, moderately carbonated mouthfeel, followed by a dry, smoky, somewhat bitter, yet sweet finish.

haugeberg (71) - - NOV 24, 2012
Drank from snifter poured from 12 oz bottle. For a light beer, the smoky flavor is very good, but almost overpowering. Quite an interesting combination of flavors. Definitely worth a second beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle... Pours a clear, beautiful copper color with a small, quickly-vanishing, white head. The nose delivers fireplace smoke, caramel and spicy grains. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is of caramel interwoven with moderate campfire smoke. Mildly sweet, grassy finish. I have to go against the grain here. I dig this beer. Bottle courtesy of garmonbozia!

markwise (4346) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12oz bottle courtesy of Pari9869. Cheers, Sam! Pours a hazy brown with an off-tan head. Nose is campfire smoke with some light wheat bread-y notes. Flavor is similar- smoke dominates and light bread around it. Interesting idea, medium in body for the style with lingering barbecue coal- type smoke in the finish. I can see this being a great marinade beer.

NachlamSie (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 6 pack from Rouse’s. Pours a cloudy amber. There is a decent smokiness in the aroma which is tainted by sour grain and metallic notes. A few sips in and the smoke wanes in the face of the sour/pennies qualities. I was excited by this concept, but it has not been pulled off successfully. Needs way more smoke and more cleanliness in general.
[August 9, 2012]
So I’m still trying to work on this 6 pack. It’s pretty bad. The off flavors are abundant and aggressive. Almost any bad flavor one can get from a beer is here: pennies, sweat, eggs, spoiled milk. The smoke quickly becomes forgettable, it’s super weak anyway. Just a train wreck of a drink. I can’t even finish any more of these.

BeerandBlues2 (9100) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is light smoke, pear esters, wheat malt and light earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light smoke, fruity esters, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

unclemattie (4038) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2012
12 oz bottle. Amber color. White thin head. Aroma is toasted wheat. Smells sweet. Thin body. Tastes of toasted cereal and an odd wheat ale tartness. Not at all like any smoke beer I’ve ever tasted. (3370)

mile (2749) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown, small to medium mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma with light roasted malt, light sourness and faint smokiness. Body is light to medium, flavor is light roasted malt with light sweetness. Finish is short to average malty - faint wheat and dryish., light roasted malt and faint smokiness, light sourness. bBt thin-bodied "rauch bier" - could use more body and smokiness. Not so sweet, though.
