3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in tulip: Pours a mostly clean orangy amber with a small fading head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of smoked meats, charred wood, caramel, rustic breads and a touch of metallic hops. The taste has a moderate smoky overtone backed by sweet malts with a touch of cherry pits. The mouth feel is slick and medium to light bodied with sparse carbonation, watery feel but bone dry aftertaste. It is better than I expected but seemed to be missing that something extra.

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.

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.

A tad smelly. Golden orange colour. Strong smoky taste. Abv is low but alcohol is felt like in a stronger brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber. Very frisky, gushing and huge top when pouring. Smoked halibut in the nose and indeed some in the aroma. Otherwise malty, spicy, quite some alcohol which is weird for 6.5%. A bit too outspoken dry smoked finish

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber, frothy offwhite head. Light fruity aroma with subtle smoke. Malty, caramely flavour with clear but still subtle smokyness. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and fruit, with touches of smoke and hints of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of caramel malt. Weak hints of smoke. Bitter and sourish aftertaste. Easy to drink and quite unpretentious. Decent.
