Gurthnar (3158) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Bottle from Amersin. Clear rubyish dark brown colour. Stable head. Aroma dark malts, dark fruits, some peaty smokiness. Taste is considerably more smoky, heavy rauch character, both beech and peat elements. Other than that there are also dried fruits and some caramel, but this beer is defined by heavy smoke presence. Complex, fun, pleasant. Harder to drink though. Very good nevertheless.

Zlotta (344) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled on 6/5/2013. The label doesn’t mention any chilis by the way, but the beer is announced as a spiced stout. Clear, almost opaque, very dark reddish brown to black with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Nice, intense aroma of plums, raisins, smoked ham and dark chocolate with hints of peat. Fruity-smoky taste of plums, raisins, dark cherries, smoked ham and dark chocolate, followed by a rather long, smoky, peated and slightly bitter finish with maybe minmal notes of chili. Medium to full body, smooth and creamy texture, flat. Very good brew that is extremely well-balanced. Although so much is going on, none of the flavours dominates or kills the other ones. I assume it benefited from the two years of aging.

ZodiacM (336) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Bijna zwart bier met bijna geen kraag. Geur van gebrande mout, rokerig, gedroogd fruit. De smaak is vooral rokerig, branderig, hout, teer, daarna wordt de smaak wat zoetig en komt er wat gedroogd fruit naar boven. De nasmaak is lekker rokerig, zoetig. Goed gebalanceerd.

Rammer (360) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 29, 2015
Very smoked flavor. A lot of smoke in the aroma and flavor first. Then there are other spices, black pepper dominates. Very interesting and tasty.

beerman33190 (76) - FRANCE - APR 20, 2015
Pours dark brown, flat, no head. Aroma is charred wood, burnt tobacco, ripe fruit. Taste is sweet ’n’ sour up front, then smokey. Leaves sugar on the lips and a burnt (not roasted) after-taste. Palate is syrupy. Mixed bag here, Flanders Ale, Rauchbier, Porter all in one. Jack of all trades syndrome but quite pleasant.

SVD (975) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle at home, Black beer with a small head, aroma is smoke, Taste is smoke, some malt, hint of spices. Hmm not a big fan of smoked beers, and the chili isnt that outspoken, not bad but not awesome.

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Les Fleurs du Malt, Lyon tap: Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is strong peat smoke and some dark chocolate. Taste is thick and smoky at first, but as your mouth gets used to it, the thick, slightly sweet maltiness comes through more. Quite complex, with a warm finish. Low carbonation. I didn’t get much chili.
