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).

Fantastic beer. Corpo e Aroma pieni ricchi. L’affumicato e il Torbato sono ben bilanciati. Questa birra mi ha rubato il cuore

Aroma: smoked ham, chocolate, bit of coffee. Taste: very chocolate, bit of sourness. Overall rather dry. Low bitternes. Low carbonate. You can feel warmness from alcohol when you swell it. Very good.

Completely dark, small tan head. Smoked as hell! Love it from the first sip! Aroma is, of course, roasty, smoked meat, dark chocolate. Thin to medium body, flat carbonation. Long meaty finish. Extraordinary!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy bread, cereal and milk chocolate for the malt. Moderate perfume, dough and meat for the hops and yeast, with notes of smoke, dried pepper and dates in the background. Head is average size, frothy/fizzy, tan with slippery lacing and good legs. Color is muddy dark brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, and heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, extremely fizzy, and finishes moderately alcoholic and sticky on the lips. A little overly carbonated, but this Smoked beer is highly complex.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
