Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, there’s no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but it’s not out of place. I lov Menno’s brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

Ne. Geht gar nicht. Nur rauch und Leder. Dazu mangelnde Kohlensäure und etwas Fisch. Trinkbar, aber auch ekelhaft.

Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours pitch black with thin creamy light brown head, sparkling appearance and many yeast particles floating. Aroma of smoke, leather, caramel, roasted malt and earthy notes. Taste starts with moderate sweet roasted malt and chocolate, follows by licorice, chili, mild smoke and some char, mouthfeel is really spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Just excellent...

Pitch black foam is lasting and brown. Smooth, dry smoke, slightly oxidized and rock candy. Little fruity chili on the afterburn, but not overpowering in any way.

Beelzebrox (39) - Enschede, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2015
33 cl bottle. Completely black, hardly any head. Aroma very smoked earthy / peated with some yeast. Taste roasted malts, smoked bacon, very nice peppery chili, caramel, soy sauce, dark chocolate. Medium bodied, bitter aftertaste with chili peppers, very low on carbonation. Special stuff, and very well done.

Bottle; pours nearly black with a tan head; smoky aroma with chocolate and malt; taste is predominantly smoke with some roasted malt, chocolate, and hints of chili; bitter roast finish; the chili is more a complimentary flavor and is not that prominent; good smoked beer though

Batavi (143) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Fles gekocht bij biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in Struise bierglas. Diep donkerbruine kleur met beige schuimkraag die vrij snel terugzakt maar wel in het glas aanwezig blijft. Krachtige aroma's van gebrande en gerookte mout, turf, chocolade, karamel en whisky. De smaken zijn complex en perfect gebalanceerd. Zeer rokerig smaakpallet met tonen van karamel, cacao, gebrand en gerookt hout, turf, aarde, teer, as, en peper. De chilipeper is een verfijnde toevoeging aan dit Rook & Vuur bier. Het geeft een lichte tinteling in het mondgevoel en de afdronk. De afdronk is verder licht bitter, medium lang en droog. Fascinerend en heel speciaal bier van brouwerij De Molen, je moet wel een liefhebber zijn van een sterk gerookte smaak, net als bij sterk geturfde single malt whisky's.

Black color with tan head. Aroma is smoked salmon, not too much bacon, very aromatic. Taste is smoked malts, a bit coffee, a nice little chili catch towards the end. Soft mouthfeel. Nice!
