Bloed, Zweet & Tranen, brewed by accident with malt from the Bruichladdich distillery, instead of the usual peated malt. Single batch only. NOTE: Beware, the bottle does not indicate whether it’s the regular BZT or the Bruichladdich. So the only way to know this is if the one who bought it was told it’s the Bruichladdich.

fonefan (40504) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Draught @ Brouwerij de Molen, Overtocht 43, Bodegraven, 2411 BT Netherlands.
Unclear medium to dark brown color with a large, creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, caramel, smoked. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, and a dry dry finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. This how a smoked beer has to be prepared, well done Menno ;o)) [20090226]

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2009 Bottled 75cl. Courtesy of bierkoning. Appearance: It pours a dark brown beer with a tall creamy nicely remaining beige head which leaves a beautiful lace. Aroma: Very strong, peaty, smoky, complex, leathery with hints of tar, vanilla, apricot, peaches, milk chocolate and cassis. Flavor and palate: Leathery, nicely peaty with hints of cassis and vanilla. Faintly salty. Low carbonation. Complex. More cassis showing up on the swallow. The finish is close to the one of a great single malt with hints of heather, apricot and dark chocolate. Overall impression: Absolutely fantastic! Definetely one of the best beers I have ever had. The sediment is excellent too. Thanks a lot bierkoning!

75 cL bottle. Pours dark brown, hazy, and with a small tan head. Solid smoked and peaty aroma. Leathery. Mild sweetness initially with a nice roasted caramel malt flavour then taken over by a solid smoked flavour into a dry and dense smoked finish. Lovely!

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
bottle at the Pre-ZBF pours dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Much more of a smokey/peated aroma compared to the regular version. Great sweet dark malt meets heavy smoke finish. A top notch stout.
