Vendor told me some bottles were off, but this one fortunately isn’t. Leathery, dark brown colour with good grayish brown head. Fantastic aroma dominated by smoked peat, but very well complemented by chili peppers, licorice, pine and maybe some berries. Very bitter taste, and the chilis give it just a very small spiciness, which should be acceptable for everyone (unlike Hot & Spicy, which I absolutely loved but didn’t go down well with everyone). Easily the best smoked ale I’ve had, although I haven’t had many.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2016
330ml bottle. 2011 vintage. Poured a brown color with a larger sized off white head. Smoke, woody, and lighter peppers in the finish. A bit on the over carbonated side, but aged ok.

DuffMan (8938) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle. Very hazy sienna hue with a tan head that retains nicely. Aroma of campfire smoke and caramel, woody undertones. Very smokey palate, sweetly smokey, with a quality reminiscent of burnt cork. Bready toffee handles the smoke wel and I like how they work together. Absolutely no hint of chillies for me, but a great full bodied smokey ale regardless.

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016
bottle at home. Bottle date 14/10/2009 - BBD + 5 years. Pours dark brown with a small small small head. Very nice nutty smoked nose, strong caramel malts, brown sugar, only a subtle of madeira. Medium and sweet but well-rounded body, nice roasty notes, some bitters in the back, spicy & hot in the finish, but mellowed out - hurray as I am not for hot spices in beer. Taste is roasted and caramel malts, dates, leather, some tar and tobacco. Wow, splendid. Why oh why did they stop reaching such heights...?

Uhhmeister (111) - - MAR 28, 2016
Niezbyt obfita, jednak kremowa i ładna piana. W aromacie czuć trochę szyszek i igieł, dalej ognisko, suszona wołowina, tytoń, a wszystko oczywiście skompane w bardzo zbalansowanej jak to u DeMolena wędzonce, która momentami wpada w torfową. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi czekolada i śliwka - jest zajebiście. W smaku (jak dla mnie) od razu daje o sobie znać pikantność, pali rure. Czuć jednak wyraźnie nuty palone, czekoladowe, jest też wędzona szynka. Jak dla mnie poziom wędzonki jest dosyć wysoki i tutaj plus, natomiast za ostrym nie przepadam, a to piwo opaliło mnie konkretnie. Jeśli ktoś lubi takie klimaty to definitywnie must-have.

Gerbeer (2925) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with red hints and a light tannish head. Aromas of smoky phenolics, licorice, and dates. Flavors follow same with a hot and antiseptic mouthfeel. A little throat burn... Didn’t think I would, but I like the heat with the smoke...
