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).

Black body with tan head which doesn’t last. Nose of wood char, smoked cream, malt. Taste is bitter-sweet, fruity, rich, light smoke. The chili heat builds very slowly. Beautifully done, very tasty.

danielyabu (1146) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JUL 24, 2014
small frothy light brown head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick black body. aroma: heavy malt, wood, smoke, smoked sausage. if: very light sweet and salty. ff: light sweet and bitter, with salty notes; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, light alcoholic finish. Smoked/spiced stout. Background maltado, com dulçor bem leve. Base de smoked, mas balanceada por aquele quesito. Álcool dá um certo charme, sem prejudicar o paladar. A baixa drinkability tradicional das rauchbier/smoked, em minha opinião, é atenuada pela junção ao estilo Stout, que com seu dulçor e teor maltado a tornou uma cerveja mais convidativa, ainda assim, longe de ser uma session beer. Um grande diferencial é seu paladar condimentado (que se torna mais forte a medida que a cerveja esquenta), resultante da adição de pimenta chilli à receita. Pode-se sentir ainda, junto a um final de leve aquecimento alcoólico, a suave presença de chocolate meio amargo, nuances estas todas atenuadas pela backbone defumada, que, obviamente, prevalece. 90 s

Aroma of roasted malts, smoked ham, light chocolate, light coffee, just a little peppery. Flavour is roasty and smoked, thankfully devoid of sweetness, with a little bitterness in the finish. Wonderfully smooth and drinkable Smoked Beer.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Złożony aromat, słodki, pełny, wyraźnie śliwkowy z dziwnymi akcentami sosu bbq, maggi, lekka zapałka od słodu whisky. W smaku jeszcze bardziej uwydatnia się słodycz, gęste, trochę jak kompot ze śliwek suszonych z wyraźnymi wędzonymi nutami zarówno w stylu bamberskim jaki i torfowymi. Ciężko się je pije, niezbyt ułożone, choć z każdym łykiem przekonuje coraz bardziej.

Smells smoke, and spices. Very good brew. Not too smikey. I like this, although I'm not too intrested in smokey.

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of random visitors. Pours a pitch black beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is rather smokey, roast, peppery. Flavor is very sweet, lots of chocolate and the smoke has faded to background a lot. Too bad. I could detect some spicey pepper notes in there, but I was sadly the only one. Age has faded most of it’s characters, but has rounded out the beer. Decent!

Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roast, sweet malt, peat, coffee, dark chocolate, light smoke. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Over medium bodied with soft carbonation.

MonsterMagnet (158) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Bottle, bottled on 06/05/13. Aroma: smoke, tar, milk. Taste: Smoked bacon, salt and soot dominate, some nuts, coffee beans, roast. Sweet, with a somewhat spicy finish. It?s not necessarily a bad beer (not a real good one either), but the smoke is way too dominant for my liking.
