bjakk (399) - Skagafjordur, - JUL 3, 2014
Yellow towards golden with white foam. Smoke, sour hay in the aroma. Smoke, dry with hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoppysmokiness grows. High in carbon. Watery. Lacks balance

VamboladeTolly (257) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle @ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours clear golden with small white head that stays.Aroma is smoked, hints of hoppines, grapefruit, some soyurness. Taste is medium bitter with sourness, smoked malts, slight citrus. Interesting but smoke kills most of it.

jookos (2638) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle@drinkbaar. Clear golden copper. Whoa, this is interesting. First whiff is sort of sheep- like, like what fresh sheep wool smells like. With a beech fire burning right next. Smoky, sort of messy primal nose. Med light bodied, bitter, dry finish. Caramels, citrus, some tropicals, hops. Strange one. Quite a meaty smoked beer. With hops.

Draft at Olympic. From notes. Loads of smoky malt dominates, hints of Roasty with some light fruity notes. Very good.

Reimer96 (1348) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma of of campfire, wood, smoke and a faint citrus smell in the background. Taste is wood, smoke, peat, campfire and citrus hops. Interesting smoked beer but the campfire flavor and peat last well into the aftertaste... Different for sure.

Tap at the Jeffrey. Pours yellow with white head. Nose is light citrus and plenty of smoke. Tastes of ash, grapefruit, lemon, and some hay. Thin bodied and slightly bitter on finish.

martjoobolut (959) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 7, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours clear golden with off-white head. Small head stays. Aroma is manure, hops and malt. Flavor is smoke, citrus, malt and manure. Finish is smoke, some more manure and citrus. Overall: ok smoked beer, but nothing special.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, 6%. Smokey aroma, the slightly burnt-rubber type of smoke. Clear golden colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour is smokey and only slightly rubbery. Taste a little like peated malt, whisky malt, but fortunately not as sweet as many whiskey malt beers. Not bad, actually.

martin00sr (888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
Clear golden, frothy white head. Clear smoky aroma. Mouthfeel is rather thin, flavour has hoppy bitterness and more of smoke.

Bamsen78 (3428) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle @ Wannsinchen / MiP bliver gammel. Pours clear amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of tar and smoke, with touches of hops. Bitter and smoky flavour, with notes of hops and yeast. Rather thin and watery body. Lingering, smoky aftertaste. I like smoked beer but this one simply cannot sustain the smoky component.

33 cL bottle @ Wannsinchen / MiP bliver gammel. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is smoked and light grapefruity. Mild tarish. Dark smoked and light citrusy hoppy. Bitter. light fruity and smoked, tarish and dry finish.
