3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared by drewbeerme at RBSG. Pours a deep and murky auburn brown with wispy head. Nose is sweet and caramel with some smoke in the distance. Light soy notes and cocoa as well. On taste, completely different experience. The smoke hangs on strong with a great campfire note that goes well with the robust caramel notes. I can’t believe this is 6.5 years old and still going strong. Perhaps on its way downhill, but phenomenal nonetheless.

Some awesome person poured some of this into my glass at RBSG 2010. Pours a dark reddish brown with some semblance of head. Very cool to try this. Aroma is still smokey, surprisingly, after all this time. A bit of sweet malt, maybe some cherry. Flavor is meat and liquid smoke. Really surprised it’s still smokey because I’ve always thought that smoked beers lose the smoke quickly. This is pretty nice. Obviously, not as great as it must have been so many years ago, but still. Wow. Awesome beer.

Sampled on tap at RBSG ’10 (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a nice murky rusty brown, fairly opaque, some lighter edges, small carbonation. Dies to near nothing. Aromas are decent smokiness, biscuit, cherry wood. A decent saltiness and cured meats. Initial is fairly smokey and salty, a good biscuty malt with toffee, malty sweetness anf cherry wood and smokey meat smoke. Not bad, a decent oxidation sends it for the worse and a touch of bandaids follows through. A touch of biscuity mellow, Ok, the smoke is still bringing the power, but the beer itself appears to be past it’s peak. Smoked beers are definitely a secret love though and wins it a point or two overall. Cheers.

Not sure who was kind enough to open this at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting but thanks a ton! Poured a dark cloudy brown with a small grayish brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of smoked malts with dark grains a bit of a jerky note. Flavor started out reserved with dark grains with smokey notes really grow to a very smokey finish and after taste. Definitely some smoked meats come out in this.

Amber pour. Aroma is smoky as hell with some bacon notes and bandaids. Flavor is really sweet with a good smoked bacon flavor profile. This one showed no signs of oxidation at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as light notes of smoke. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and smoke from beech wood, as well as notes of over ripe fruits and alcohol, leading to a dry finish where the alcohol tickles the tongue. Thank a million CaptainCougar for coming to Denmark and bringing this - I’m really happy to try one of the other rare examples of a smoked BW, but I think Ungstrup’s Reserve is the better...
