mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - JUL 10, 2007
bottled at beer bistro in toronto. a couple steps down from aecht rauchbier. smoky flavor and aroma, but that’s where the similarity ends. the malt profile is obstensibly lacking, huge dissappointment.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 341 ml bottle - pours a dark clear mahogany with a decent white head. Aroma kind of faint but mainly sweet malt and some smoke of course, along with a subtle sourness. I wasn’t expecting much, but the flavour is quite lovely - not like other smoked beers I’ve had that hit you over the head with their smoked meat flavours, this one is very clean and bears the stamp of actual wood smoke - hickory and peat - an earthiness under a rich malty body. Full-flavoured, delicious and highly quaffable for a smoked. Would be fantastic in autumn.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle. Dark reddish amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma of chocolate and very little hints of smoke. Nice fine flavour of malt, sweetness and someway easy to drink for a smoke beer.

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottled sample from radiomgb. Medium brown in colour with hints of red. Aromas of vanilla chocolates, malt, and a hint of smoke. More malt in the mouth with a much more pronounced sour-smoke twang. A bit of burnt malt flavor as well. Somewhat oily texture, but in a very nice way. Even though I was expecting to enjoy this one, it exceeded my expectations. Great stuff.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2007
Kind of smells of pork socks, yeah, socks and pork, together at last! Deep brown colour with some fizz and a weak head. Tastes like smoky water. not really strong enough for what I have come to expect in a smoked beer.

Centerice (5) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2007 does not count
A dark reddish brown colour with a modest fizzy head. A slight smoky, peaty aroma with a hint of bbq. Smokey flavour with notes of cooked bacon, biscuits and sweet caramel. A very accessible and enjoyable smoke beer.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2006
A deep red beer with a slight haze under a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primery notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as lighter notes of burnt malt and smoke, leading to a dry end.
