3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

The smokey taste is good. But the beer overall is not great. Drinks easy though.

330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours amber with a light smoked aroma. Quite a smooth, enjoyable beer with a creamy bonfire finish. Nice.

I really didnít enjoy this beer. It has heavy hints of bacon which I find quite incongruous in a beer. The smoke flavor is also very present. If you have ever eaten a Tuc Bacon savory cookie, that is what this beer reminds me of. DVDK can make excellent beers (Extase), but this one isnít one to my taste.

Bottle, pours hazy amber with a white head. Light smoke, bacon, dried apricot, wood, hints of iodine, caramel, more dried fruit. Creamy texture. Pretty gentle smoked beer.

Shared bottle. Slight hazy Amber with creamy head. Caramel, light dried fruits, smoked meats, light pine, citrus and wood. Light sweet. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Not too smoked, overall quite subtle but not nearly as good as other DVDK beers.

Tastes really full, the alcohol is well balanced.
Okay beer but not my favorite.

Another beer where the aroma is the perfect match of the taste. Sadly, the smoke taste is heavily dominant, and it finish by being the only taste of this beer.

Lichtbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is rook en zoet met iets van vanille en peer.
Apaart bier maar best goed.
