Swaroga (2024) - Gdańsk, - NOV 10, 2012
33cl bottle. Amber and brown wood color. The head is creamy and light beige. Nose : smoked notes are strong and first to hit the nose, some dairy elements with milk chocolate like aromas. Smoked cheese like aromas. Nuts. Sip : medium body with creamy texture. Good carbonation. Sweet with burned and smoked aromas with spices and nuts. Develops a dry feeling until the end. The beer is deliciously smoked. There is a small issue of balance and lacks more rich ending but it does also make a great beer with low alcohol content. Nice one.

jaghana (5380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle 33cl, a copper amber beer with medium head, low retention. Nose is strange and unusual on smoked touch and cooked vegetables, nutty. Taste is quite bitter with astringent finish, aroma on toasted grain and smoked notes, bit mono-dimensional unfortunately, retro-olfaction gives a ashes and kind of vomit touch ! So a real smoked beer but a bit harsh.

chinchill (4137) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2016
From a 330 ml bottle into a goblet. APPEARANCE: A gentle pour, leaving 1 cm of sediment-laden liquid in the bottom of the bottle, produced a small, semi-durable, off-white head. Copper in color and moderately hay despite the pour. Aroma: Sweet and smoked malts; hints of dried fruits, including cherries, wet cardboard, and caramel. Complex with a light smokiness. Flavor: Medium+ strength, More fruity than smoky; in fact, it’s quite lightly smoky in a manner than works well with the complex fruity and yeasty notes. More smoke appears in the aftertaste, along with a light bitterness, Caramel sweetness masks the bitterness until the finish. PALATE: Medium body and carbonation. Very smooth. OVERALL: well worth trying.

Hopverdju (553) - BELGIUM - APR 19, 2016
Amber/oranjekleurig bier met wandklevende witte schuimkraag. Geur: gerookte hesp, hoppig, fruitig, wat sinaasappel. Smaak: rook, broodgist, moutzoetig, klein bittertje. Licht tot medium mondgevoel. Afdronk: zoetig – bitterig. Het aspect “rook” is duidelijk aanwezig, maar niet overheersend, wat het aangenaam maakt.
